4.0 out of 5 stars A little hit-or-miss, but a fine album overall March 11, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Let me start by saying I'm not a knowledgeable Lynyrd Skynyrd fan. Of course, everyone knows Freebird, the greatest Southern rock anthem of all time, and just about everyone still mourns the loss of original front man Ronnie Van-Zant (as well as guitarist Steve Gaines) in a 1977 plane crash, but my familiarity with the band doesn't go much deeper than this. When I heard this album's title track The Last Rebel, though, I knew I had to have this album. As both a proud Southerner and a man who oftentimes finds himself in a minority of one on certain issues, this song appealed to me on two levels. The music and lyrics combine to evoke vivid images of a Rebel soldier, alone and defeated yet still proud and resilient, leaving the scarred battleground to return home; it's a haunting track that, through front-man Johnny Van-Zant's gritty, hard-driving vocals, evokes a vivid image of that Southern soldier trying to find his way home in a world that has changed forever.
The album as a whole is a little hit-and-miss, in my opinion. There are some really great tracks, but there also some tracks that really just don't seem to do anything for me. The band seems to be going through the motions at times, but when Johnny Van-Zant sings about the South and bemoans a way of life that is quickly disappearing, his voice roils with an angst-filled emotional power that takes the music to a whole new level. Thus are born such winning songs as Can't Take That Away, Outta Hell in my Dodge, Kiss Your Freedom Goodbye, South of Heaven, and Born to Run. What some will call "redneck" songs actually resonate with fans all over the country for their lament for moral decline, the demise of small towns and small town values, and the code of honor that has always been a part of being a Southerner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Johnny Van Zant era Skynyrd album June 3, 2007
Format:Audio CD
To alot of people Lynyrd Skynyrd died when on Oct 20, 1977 when it took the life Ronnie Van Zant, Steve Gaines, Cassie Gaines, Dean Kilpatrick, Walter McCreary and William Gray. This is not the case and "The Last Rebel" proves that.

Johnny stepped up to the mic and fill his brother's shoes on vocals. Granted Johnny does not have the songwriting ability Ronnie did, but vocally there is no better fit. The lineup on this album, Johnny Van Zant - vocals, Gary Rossington - guitar, Ed King - guitar, Randall Hall- guitar, Billy Powell - piano, Leon Wilkeson - bass, Kurt Custer- drums, is one the BEST Skynyrd lineups post-crash.

This is the second album of new new material, Lynyrd Skynyrd 1991 being the first. This is by far the BEST collection of songs since Johnny took over singing. As one reviewer stated , this more on the country side. The songs are typical , blue collar Skynyrd songs that connect with just about anyone. This is a very underrated album in the whole Skynyrd catalog.

The songs on "The Last Rebel" sound like something that the original band could have recorded back in the 70's. They are fun, rockin' and tell a story. The songs will connect with the common man who want that small town values and morals to be a part of life.

You have typical Skynyrd songs that would fit with the original band - "Good Lovin's Hard To Find" , "Ouuta Hell In My Dodge" , and "Kiss Your Freedom Goodbye" . Songs that recall the ideals of the South - "South Of Heaven". "The Last Rebel" and "Born To Run" are some of the best ones on here. But my favorite is "Can't Take That Away" , which a lot of dumb people in this country want done like taking God out of things and doing away with the Pledge Of Allegiance.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Follow-Up March 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Ah, the second Skynyrd album since the crash. This album to me is just as good as Skynyrd:1991, and maybe a little better. To me, this album does not qualify as southern rock, though. This album is probably the most country-influenced album Skynyrd has done. It has a few hard-rockers, but for the most part, this is a country album (which is fine with me).

Some of the main hilights on this one are: "One Thing", "Outta Hell In My Dodge", & "Born To Run". There aren't really any songs on this album that I don't like. About half of the songs I would give 4-5/5, and the other half no lower than 3/5. If you liked 1991, buy this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars lynyrd skynyrd is the greatest band of all time November 23, 2004
Format:Audio CD
to me lynyrd skynyrd will always be number one. i love sothernrock, theres a lot of my favorites out there. but theres just something about ronnie vanzant and the skynyrd band. i think there the greatest of all time. johnnys vocals are awsome aswell. sounds alot like his brother ronnie. i love this album its just awsome johnny's vocals are out of this world and they are all great. the last rebel tuches the heart and soul, and you can tell its a tribute to johnnys brother ronnie, if your a skynyrd fan this is for you. would make a great christmas gift. a fan always. kds,

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't Fix It If It Ain't Broke November 2, 2000
Format:Audio CD
To some Lynyrd Skynyrd are rollicking country rock with 'real' songs and anthems about, and for, ordinary everyday folk. For others they're cliched and archaic, unimaginative and irrelevant. Now ignoring the harsh fact that most music is in danger of becoming irrelevant due to the rise of computer games and virtual reality, etc., I tend to go with the former. Sure, they're predictable, as on 'Outta Hell In My Dodge' and 'Best Things In Life', but the vibe here is warm, flowing and somehow reassuring. 'The Last Rebel' isn't necessarily better or worse than their '1991' comeback record, but the title track itself is a real golden nugget, a poignant tale partly about the American Civil War. Another time, another place? Perhaps, but y'know, sometimes the spirit of the past can give us fresh hope for the future.
