Lynyrd Skynyrd - Gimme Back My Bullets (1999) Retail CD
The Skynyrd's fourth album wasn't the commercial success they were doubtless hoping for. Though their claim that the Bullets referred to in the title actually referred to bullets on the Billboard albums charts struck many as somewhat ingenuous, there is little doubt that Gimme Back My Bullets was recorded with an eye for the main chance. If you can hear Lynyrd Skynyrd at all over the platoon of backing singers wheeled in for the clumsily self-mythologising "Double Trouble", it is only as men desperately trying to will a repeat of "Sweet Home Alabama" into being. It might have helped, in retrospectmore…, if they'd written a tune to go with it. Clumsy self-mythologising is pretty much the central motif of Gimme Back My Bullets: aside from the heartfelt and rather lovely version of JJ Cale's "I Got The Same Old Blues". That said, Skynyrd's brand of swampy boogie is as efficiently played as ever, and the closing ballad "All I Can Do Is Write About It", while outrageously self-pitying and self-serving, is almost--almost--sufficiently lachrymose to be moving. --Andrew Mueller
