I love this cd. this is a great album from one of America's best rockers. the music moves into a more Cinderella style. not that is sounds like cinderella but you hear the skynyrd roots and the evolution into a harder,bluesy band. the first 7 songs are great. #12 really rocks and of course the song Mad Hatter is a tribute to the late Leon Wilkeson. Ricky sings a duet with johnny and kid rock duets also. overall this album smokes. Don't expect the 70's skynyrd and you might be pleased.

Great cd, although at the moment (only had it a couple of weeks) not quite as strong as the 'Edge Of Forever'cd.Most of the 15 tracks are excellent and the band is absolutely Smokin', especially Messrs Rossington and Medlocke. Not many Southern rock releases come along nowadays which is a real shame , as this is up there with virtually everyone out there (and could teach one or two people a lesson or three) even after thirty years.

From: Richard Date: June 6, 2003 at 22:09
I really love this record. This is best album for 15 years. If you're a rock'n'roll fan, this is a must cd. When you listen it more and more, you started to love it even more. Sounds, lyrics, all are amazing. I liked Twenty and Edge Of Forever cd's also, but this is top! My favourites are Life Lessons, Lucky Man, That's How I Like It, etc. Gimme Back My Bullets is totally asskickin' rock'n'roll! All the other old great bands are going weak, but skynyrd is getting stronger all the time! enjoy!

Mad Hatter. Thats how i like it. skynyrd owns all-freebird

From: CurtisLoew Date: October 22, 2003 at 16:07
The best "Skynbyrd" CD since "1991", but it's still not as strong as people make it out to be.

From: Christine Date: October 24, 2003 at 3:11
The first time I heard the opening riff of "Jake," I almost fell out of my chair! Excellent album - I'm a huge Skynyrd fan and this is the best they've sounded in years.

From: James Date: April 17, 2004 at 14:28
this cd has just passed the 300,000 mark in cd's sold and is expected to go gold very soon.

I've heard a few songs from this album (thanks James!!! ) and they sound great!!! "Hell Or Heaven" just blew me away!!!! Just....WOW!!!

From: Marty Date: August 17, 2004 at 4:35
Went to a Skynyrd concert a couple of days ago. All the other old bands are starting to be forgotten, but Lynyrd Skynyrd gets stronger by the minute. Great CD. Hope theirs more from them.
