PRIDE AND GLORY / Pride and Glory (1994)

Before Black Label Society became his home, Zakk Wylde released an often ignored album under the Pride and Glory name.  It’s awesome.  Most of the time it sounds like a chunkier Lynyrd Skynyrd, so if you don’t like Skynyrd stay well away.  I should also point out if you don’t like Skynyrd there’s something wrong with your ears.  Zakk teases the usual amount of widdle genius from his guitar on the heavier tracks, and lets his emotions soar on the softer ones.  It’s those softer tracks that raise it above a simple homage.
