  1. There's a real fire to his writing here, turning Revival into a missive as immediate, effective, and telling as Neil Young's "Living with War."
  2. This album is not just a revival, but a complete rejuvenation for John Fogerty. It's easily his best solo record, and what makes it so special is that he embraces his swamp-rocking Creedence Clearwater Revival days.
  3. The title Revival is no hype: Fogerty is again in full command of his talent for blending heartfelt writing with irony-free meat-and-potatoes rock.
  4. Fogarty's seventh studio album shows that his soul-scarred voice and knack for killer licks remains as potent as ever. [19 Oct 2007, p.126]

    I thought it was amazing to see John Fogerty make such a strong album. He's over 60, and he sings like he's 30.

    I've heard "Don't You Wish It was True?" and I think it's a great tune--but I've yet to hear the whole album. Glowing, glorious reviews abound (as usual) from the banal crowd that must not have a musical appreciation like the rest of us: How many lousy CDs am I supposed to buy on the word of paid-by-the-industry [bad] reviewers all of whom have all their taste in their mouths? I'll buy it after I hear (all of) it. Full Review »
