CD Review: John Fogerty

John Fogerty
By David Chiu

Perhaps his strongest work to date, Revival is a fun, back-to-basics works for the legendary leader of Creedence Clearwater Revival. Sure there’s always been a melodic feel to his music going back to his Creedence days but Revival is laid-back, spirited and playful especially on “Don’t You Wish It Was True” and the nostalgic “Creedence Song.” Even the more topical songs, especially about the war, reveals Fogerty’s fiery grit on the anti-Bush “Long Dark Night” and “I Can’t Take It No More.” Revival reiterates Fogerty’s consistency for tuneful and soulful rockers with a homespun, rootsy flair.
