"The idea of two-disc, 45 RPM 200-gram audiophile LP reissues of Lynyrd Skynrd's first and next-to-last studio albums, each selling for $55, may seem an odd mix of high-brow sound with low-brow music, but doubters should suspend judgment until they hear the results. ... First released in February 1976, the perpetually underrated studio album Gimme Back My Bullets, which has yet to sell itself into platinum status, had much-improved sound over Skynyrd's earlier studio albums, due to the engineering skills of producer Tom Dowd, who served in the same roles for the original band's last studio album, Street Survivors (1977). By the fall of 1975, when Gimme Back My Bullets was made at the Record Plant, in Los Angeles, and Capricorn Studios, in Macon, Georgia, the sextet had also become a far more professional band. The arrangements were tighter, the playing more focused, and their mix of country and rock, tilted forever toward rock in tunes like 'Cry for the Bad Man,' had been honed to a fine edge. The newly vivid, intense sound is thanks to the remastering by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound. While all the live tracks included on the 2006 CD/DVD reissue were genuine bonuses, this LP reissue will always be the way to hear this album. As is usual with Analogue Productions reissues, the heavyweight packaging is lush — and the pressing quality, from AP sister company Quality Record Pressings, is excellent. Best of all, these editions are the final sonic words on these albums. ... These albums have never sounded better, and it's not much of a leap to say they never will." Robert Baird, Stereophile, May 2017

“Lynyrd Skynyrd begins to show signs of wear on their fourth album, Gimme Back My Bullets. The band had switched producers, hiring Tom Dowd, the producer who served Atlantic's roster so well during the label's heyday. Unfortunately, he wasn't perfectly suited for Skynyrd, at least at this point in their history. The group had toured regularly since the release of their debut and it showed, not just in their performance, but in the songwriting of Ronnie Van Zant, who had been so consistent through their first three albums. Not to say that he was spent -- the title track was as defiant as "All I Can Do Is Write About It" was affecting, while "Searching" was a good ballad and "Double Trouble" was a good rocker. These songs, however, were surrounded by songs that leaned to the dull side of generic (unlike those on Nuthin' Fancy) and Dowd's production didn't inject energy into the group's performances. This doesn't mean Gimme Back My Bullets is a bad record, since the group was still in fairly good shape and they had some fine songs, but coming after three dynamite albums, it was undoubtedly a disappointment -- so much so that it still sounds like a disappointment years later, even though it's one of only a handful of records by the original band.” AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
