Review by Stormy
3 stars out of 4

The second compilation from legendary rock brothers Johnny and Donnie Van Zant is another great collection of potent rock tunes interspersed with some powerful ballads. The lead track "Oklahoma" written about the victims of the horrible tornadoes that struck there in 2000 goes from a country twang beginning to a headlong rock finale. "Heart Of an Angel" is in intense rock ballad with sweet piano lead-ins and a power-rock chorus. Although the brothers' roots and the influences of their respective bands Lynyrd Skynyrd and .38 Special are evident throughout the CD, they put their own personal songwriting stamp on the music. The modernistic brash-rocking "Imagination" is in perfect contrast to the gutsy boogie of "Baby Get Blue". Johnny and Donnie's vocals are spectacular throughout, both individually and during the duets. The backing musicians are killer, and Kenny Wayne Shepherd lends his guitar pyrotechnics on a couple of tracks. While the brothers will be recording again with their separate bands, this CD makes you hope they continue to record together on a regular basis.
