Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - p.60
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[B]est of all is the group's raucously virtuosic take on Merle Haggard's 'Honky Tonk Night Time Man,' which overflows with gorgeous country riffs that sound like pure chicken-fried joy."
Q - May 2002, p.132
4 out of 5 stars - "...[Skynyrd at] their stadium-filling peak....STREET SURVIVOR suggested something of a renaissance....it wasn't to last..."
Uncut - p.97
4 stars out of 5 -- "[The album] sounds as fabulously feral as ever, in particular the deadpan odes to excess, 'What's Your Name?' and 'You Got That Right'."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.121
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he music here -- quintessentially Southern rock'n'roll -- carries a life-affirming spirit, typified by the honky-tonk groupie anthem 'What's Your Name' and the sweetly soulful 'I Never Dreamed'..."
Blender (Magazine) - p.80
4 stars out of 5 -- "Skynyrd stayed closer to the common dirt of the everyday, rooting their music in blues, soul and outlaw country and composing every note of their three guitarists' solos with blue-collar labor."
Paste (magazine) (p.73) - "STREET SURVIVORS exhibited a renewed vigor and updated edge....SURVIVORS careens from the Celtic vibe of 'One More Time' to the raw, Bakersfield boogie of Merle Haggard's 'Honky Tonk Night Time Man'..."
Record Collector (magazine) - p.94
4 stars out of 5 -- "If you like your Southern rock with honking brass and plenty of bottle then the last hurrah of the Ronnie Van Zant-led line-up of Alabama's finest is just the ticket."

Sadly, STREET SURVIVORS would prove to be the final Lynryd Skynyrd album of the Ronnie Van Zant-era. Only three days after this, the band's fifth studio album (sixth overall) was released in 1977, the band boarded the tragic plane flight that killed singer Ronnie Van Zant and new members guitarist Steve Gaines and background vocalist Cassie Gaines.
The fact that STREET SURVIVORS was one of Skynyrd's best albums only intensified the tragedy--it appeared as though the band was peaking artistically. "What's Your Name" caught the band at its most fun and playful, the grim "That Smell" warned against the dangers of drug and alcohol addiction, and "I Know A Little" showed off its country roots.
