I got turned on to Lynyrd Skynyrd when I heard 'Sweet Home Alabama' for the first time. I thought I would buy this album to see what they were like over the course of an album. They are awesome! There are no two ways about it, 'Pronounced' is brilliant.
It has it all, great songs, great riffs and one of the most amazing rock songs ever written in 'Freebird'. The guitar solo is longer than most songs!!! I would highly recommend this album to anyone who loves the guitar as an instrument!! Truly amazing!

This Skynyrd line up were superb & this is a very fine record. No quibbles - it's just pure brilliance. Every track is outstanding - great tunes, gritty vocals & superb musicianship. An absolute "must have" (along with all the other albums from the pre plane crash Synyrd).

To be honest, you'd have to be barking mad not to buy this record - it's more than "just" a rock album, it's touched by genius.

Superb in every sense. A truly marvellous record by a truly excellent band.

I'm gonna keep this review short and sweet!

Lynyrd Skynyrd's debut 'Pronounced leh-nerd skin-nerd' is, in my opinion, probably the greatest album ever made... ever! It is as close to perfection as is humanly possible! Every song is spot on so I won't bother naming highlights... Not even Free Bird can steal the show... well, just about! If you like rock music, or in fact any music, this album is a must in your collection. The musicianship on this album is second to none...

I really can't recommend this enough... It truly is a work of music art, and is a lasting memory of why 20th October 1977 was the darkest day in the history of music. Buy and you won't be disappointed, it's that good!

Fly high Free Bird...

Although i had heard Skynard tracks before, after buying this album on vinyl resantly i was shocked at it's brilliance. Not only does the album contain the rock classic 'Freebird' argueably rocks second greatest ever track behind Stairway, but all of the other tracks on the record are superb. From the opening riff of 'I ain't the one' the album takes the listener on a good only fashioned rock'n'roll journey which include the haunting 'Tuesday's gone' , the lyricly biting 'Things goin on' as well as the sheer rock genius of 'Gimme three steps'.
To sum this album up is tough all i can say is that as a student of today i , after buying the album exactly 30 years after it's realise, still find it to be as fresh and sensational as it was when first relised.

Lynyrd Skynyrd's first album may as well also be known as their Greatest Hits! All the classics are here! 'Tuesday's Gone,' 'Simple Man,' 'Gimme Three Steps' and of course, their signature tune 'Freebird,' the other four tracks are just as good just often overlooked by comparison. There are a few bonus tracks including demos as well which are great and handy if you're a budding guitarists and want to solo you're heart out over the outro of 'Freebird' you can essentially use these demos as backing tracks.
The songs are surprisingly riffy and the guitars dominate the mix as much as the vocals, if not more so. The production is great and noticably 70's sounding - which is definitely a good thing.
As good a debut as you're ever likely to hear and still untouched to many, if you want a Skynyrd album in your collection and you're considering one of the many compilations / greatest hits collections, don't bother, just pick up this instead, it's got all you need!

"...Look out glitter kids, a real Rock 'n' Roll band just showed up..." - raved the on-the-money reviewer in America's hip music magazine "Record World" in the late summer of 1973. Southern Rock was up and running (again) – Atlanta style.

Funnily enough - and despite its supposed kick-ass reputation (mostly through the epic Side 2 finisher "Free Bird") – I've always thought of Lynyrd Skynyrd's debut album as a more mellow, sexy swagger of a record than an out-and-out rocker – a slightly inebriated good old boy with a bottle of Jack Daniels in one hand and a Delta 78" in the other - deeply enamoured with both. And like the utterly brilliant "Second Helping" LP that followed in April 1974 – both have stood the test of old father time rather well my son. Here are the Mississippi Kids...
