Editorial Reviews

Legendary rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd releases a fiery slice of Southern style guitar rock heaven in Last of a Dyin' Breed. This is the kind of record guaranteed to feed the needs of the multi-generational Skynyrd Nation, and continue the renewed vigor the band exhibited with their previous album, 2009's God & Guns. For the passionate, longtime fans of the band, this is Skynyrd at the top of their game, complete with instantly memorable songs, more hooks than a tackle box, and a blistering three-guitar attack at full power.

Led by core members Gary Rossington (guitar), Johnny Van Zant (vocals) and Rickey Medlocke (guitar), along with longtime drummer Michael Cartellone, Skynyrd has recorded an album that continues to build on the legacy that began over 35 years ago in Jacksonville, Florida. Joining them in the studio and on the road are new bassist Johnny Colt (Black Crowes, Train) guitarist Mark "Sparky" Matejka (a "Nashville cat, just a pickin' fool," according to Rossington), and keyboardist Peter Keys, who replaced Powell on the God & Guns tour.

Last Of A Dyin' Breed re-ignites the in-studio alchemy the band found with Guns producer Bob Marlette, and the sound is traditional Skynyrd blended to perfection with the edge of immediacy. In short, it's rock n roll for the times.

This review is based on the Special Edition, which includes 4 bonus tracks & expanded packaging. It is not a review of the "Special Fan Pack" which includes 2 other bonus songs. It can be obtained through Amazon or Best Buy. As far as the music goes, this is very guitar oriented, 100% Pure American Southern Rock of totally BRAND NEW MATERIAL, from Skynyrd.

I don't understand how any band can be more of a "Southern Rock Band" than Skynyrd. Skynyrd is the "Standard" when it comes to "Southern Rock". They were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2006. I've been a fan ever since they first came out in the early 1970's. I still have concert ticket stubs from the "original" Ronnie Van Zant version of Skynyrd. I've seen all the various line-ups through the years, and I've always loved every version of Skynyrd. I've heard all the pros & cons about Skynyrd sounding like "Country", & "Country" sounding like Skynyrd, but to me, Skynyrd is as Pure of an American Southern Rock Band, as you can get. Their songs are for all hard working Americans, North, South, East or West, and also for their many fans in other countries. Their songs address "real life" issues". Like Artimus Pyle once said, "Lynyrd Skynyrd is about the Real World", and that tradition continues in this new release.

The 4 Bonus Tracks on this Special Edition include:

12.Poor Man's Dream
13.Do It Up Right
14.Sad Song
15.Low Down Dirty

This is the first Skynyrd Album (other than the Original Muscle Shoals Album), that does not include the late/great Billy Powell on keyboards. However, his replacement, Peter "Keys" Pisarczyk, formerly from various versions of George Clinton's Parliment/Funkadelic Band, does a good job of playing keyboards for Skynyrd.

Based strictly on the strength of the songs and performances, this is one of skynyrd's best-certainly of the Johnny era-but holds up respectably w/ anything they've done. Would it be better and/or sound more authentically skynyrd w/ Leon, Billy and you name the other departed/estranged former member, most likely. However, it is stunning and showcases a band of die hards (and hired guns)who still care enough to make the best music they can. For all the clowns that write it off w/o giving it any shot b/c every surviving member is not a part of the current band, get real. How many girlfriends/wives from the '70's do you still talk to? Try being married to 6 spouses-no way it can always work; not to mention the ones that time claims. Setting that pointless argument aside, these songs deserve to be heard and savored-they are extremely well crafted and exquisitely produced-everything is mixed w/ power and the guitars are set on stun!! If you have ever loved the band, this is a safe bet. If you love southern rock, it's a safe bet. I can recommend it w/o reservation. Skynyrd may have spent the last 20+ years relying too heavily on the same classics in the live shows, but they continue to offer proof that they can write and/or allign themselves w/ excellent writers and turn out bonafide ass kicking new product. There is no reason not to support this album w/ a purchase.

I just listened to the whole album. This is one of those albums where you go "wow, did that just happen". Every song is a radio release single worthy song. This cd will be playing heavily in my truck loud and proudly for awhile. The hard hitting common emotion songs like Ready To Fly, Sad Song, & One Day At A Time would make Ronnie proud. Some humor is in songs like Life's Twisted and Mississippi Blood. Really put a smile on your face. My only complaint is that Medlocke didn't share vocals on at least one song. Thats disappointing for a Blackfoot fan like me.

This CD is very good and its definitely a good buy because it is what you would expect from Lynyrd Skynyrd. The music is right for what is going on in the world and on the right track because it comes from a southern rock band that's been around for a long time.

I am a Skynard fan going back to the 70's. I still have an unopened Street Survivors album. To me, I was always a little scheptical about any new releases beyond the original Skynard. Over the years I have enjoyed the "New" releases a little more as the modern band matured. The God And Guns album is a great collection of songs which are well written and relate to our currant times. The Last Of A Dying breed is one of the best written releases to date. Ready To Fly is about family, getting older, what all of us will go through in time, excellant song. Good Teacher, from learning about love, to life, to school, great song. Start Livin' life Again, About the excesses in life. All the songs are well written, well played. I know that there is only one original member left, but you have to check this out. Give a listen, than listen again and again. I believe you will pick your favorites. Out of 11 songs, 9 are excellant, two are great. With the quality of song writing, the excellant ability of these musicians, I hope the title does'nt mean it's their last.

Lynyrd Skynyrd is my all time favorite band. This cd did not disappoint me. I love about 9 out of 11 songs. Worth adding to a library.
