My Kind of Country

The second country album by brothers Johnny and Donnie Van Zant (of Lynyrd Skynyrd and .38 Special, respectively) gets off to a chugging start with the propulsive “Train”—then promptly goes off the rails with “These Colors Don’t Run,” a drearily unimaginative anthem that mercilessly wrings the last few bits of life from every overused patriotic cliché in the book. My Kind of Country nicely recovers with a set of tunes that, like the duo’s gold hit Get Right With the Man, infuses contemporary country with the tasty Southern rock that made the Van Zant family name.
