LYNYRD SKYNYRD 1991 was the bands first studio album in 14 years. It was finally time for them to set aside the sadness and tragedy
of that fateful airplane crash and make some new music with Ronnie's little brother Johnny on vocals. The legend of Lynyrd Skynrd
had only grown since that time, so expectations were fairly high for their return, but these wheels began turning before the 1988
live release SOUTHERN BY THE GRACE OF GOD. The question remained as to whether the band could offer any new songs that could stand
alongside their now classic back catalog.

On the surface, 1991 faithfully recreates their classic sound, replete with their trademark Southern Rock grooves, tinkling piano
keys and almost gospel sounding female choir behind them. "Smokestack Lightning" is a promising opening track which earned a great
deal of airplay on Atlanta FM radio back when this was released. The rest of the album has its moments and is certainly likable
enough. Ultimately though, the songwriting here is too tepid and fails to produce any new Skynyrd classics. While it's a still an
enjoyable album, this kind of substandard songwriting would lower the bar for Skynyrd's studio records from this point onward.

This LP has some killer guitar licks and I love how they even brought a little gospel in the mix. I remember when this Cd came out and I was so excited to see something new from a "dead" band. And for me it didn't disappoint.
