This album marks Lynyrd Skynyrd's 30 year anniversary, and does not disappoint in any way for lynyrd skynyrd fans. After the massive success of 'Freebird' all those many years ago, and with a lot of band members unfortunately gone to a better place, Johnny, Ronnie's brother, succesfully manages to hurl the new image Lynyrd Skynyrd into a progression of their older work. The album starts with 'Thats How I Like It' which is much heavier than any stuff I've ever heard from them. For the tradionalists amongst you out there, this may be a bad thing, but for the other people who like to move forward and other youngsters like myself, this is a brilliant new sound. Johnny's rougher voice certainly adds a hard edge to their music whilst Gary Rossington still provides the guitar brilliance that made Lynyrd Skynyrd a household name in the seventies. Other favourites of mine include 'Pick 'Em Up' and 'The Way', whilst 'Red, White and Blue' (A Patriotic American song - 'Different' lyrics) starts off slowly but finishes magnificently. The letdown for me is 'All Funked Up', which is a little too heavy for my liking, but could be liked if you are into that sort of thing. The album is not all modern, though, with songs such as 'Hell or Heaven' and 'Crawl' giving an 80's rock feel (They still work, though). Usually, towards the end of an album, 'filler' tracks can let it down, but 'Vicious Cycle' finishes just as strong with 'Jake' and a 6-minute 'Life's Lesson'. 'Lucky Man' has a more acoustic sound to it and a re-make of their old song 'Gimme Back My Bullets', featuring Kid Rock, certainly finishes off the album superbly and shows just how much they have progressed over the years. This album has helped me to convert my friends to the Skynyrd side and has pretty much constantly been in my CD player for the past few months. You MUST buy this album. Fantastic.

This an excellent new album from the Kings of Rock. The quality and structure of the songs are classic Skynyrd from the driving Thats How I Like It and Pick 'Em Up to the superbly crafted ballad Red White and Blue. Johnny Van Zant's vocals are a perfect foil for the triple guitar onslaught that epitomises the band. A must for all fans

Arguably the best Southern blues 'n' boogie band of all time return with their first studio album in four years - and there's another personnel change. Following the sad death of original bass player Leon Wilkeson during the making of the album (he appears on two tracks) bottom end duties fall to one Ean Evans who acquits himself superbly throughout.
The album kicks off with two cracking "jus'-like-the-ol'-days" tracks ("That's How I like It" and "Pick 'em Up") which perfectly encapsulate that much-loved Skynyrd good ole boys Dixie raunch 'n' swing - like only they do. Vocalist Johnny Van Zant is on top form and Gary Rossington's Les Paul tears in with his usual swagger and style.
"Dead Man Walkin'" (a tale of wrongful conviction) starts in a sparse country blues style but explodes into life after a not unreasonable period - well it is Skynyrd. Nice to hear some bluesy acoustic guitar here and there in intros before the band kicks in - effective.
"The Way" has a killer riff which is followed by a wonderful chord sequence on the chorus.
"Sweet Mama" and "Rockin' Little Town" do exactly what you would expect from the titles.
There are horns (gulp!) here and there but they actually complement the tracks they're on very well, adding tasteful embellishment without ever being obtrusive.
The low points are the slower ballad style tracks - Red White & Blue (inexplicably lifted as the single in the US although lyrically it's good; Hell or Heaven (awash with strings!)- which sound like bad AOR (think Toto/Foreigner) and the bonus track - a completely surplus to requirements remake of "Gimme Back My Bullets" with Kid Rock which adds zero to the original. Skynyrd don't need to "get down and happening" with any Kiddy-come-lately.
So overall a pretty triumphant return to form. If you are a Lynyrd Skynyrd fan from way back you won't be disappointed - just skip the ballads and crank up the rest!

Like a bottle of vintage wine, Lynyrd Skynyrd continues to improve with age. This, their first studio album for three years, is brimful of catchy tunes delivering Skynyrd's trademark sound with energy and panache.
This year, celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of their first LP, 'Pronounced Leh-nerd Skin-nerd', the band have assembled a collection of infectious ballads and toe-tapping rockers certain to please fans old and new.
Lead singer, Johnny Van Zant has never sounded better. On 'Red, White and Blue' - a huge hit on US radio - he whips up patriotic fervour with an emotional expression of nationalistic pride.
Elsewhere, pianist Billy Powell is in sparkling form particularly on 'Sweet Mama', belting out honky tonk rhythms with a vengeance.
Rickey Medlocke and Johnny Van Zant share vocal duties on 'Pick 'Em Up', that opens in a blaze of horns. It's a tale of life on the road
Over the years Skynyrd have been bedevilled by misfortune and, unfortunately, tragedy continues to stalk the band. During the recording of Vicious Cycles, bassist Leon Wilkeson passed away. 'Mad Hatter' is a poignant and heartfelt tribute to his memory.
Kid Rock features on the closing track, which is a raucous reworking of the Skynyrd classic, 'Gimme Back My Bullets'.
'Vicious Cycle' is a testimony to the band's enduring appeal and is an excellent addition to their formidable arsenal of songs. As they prepare for a lengthy US tour, Skynyrd have added another triumphant chapter to their glorious history.
