  • Summary: The former Creedence Clearwater Revival singer returns after three years with his latest solo album.
Score distribution:
  1. Positive: 10 out of 13

  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. Fogerty sets high standards for himself and thankfully, he has delivered an album that matches his early solo work.
  5. Fogerty's voice sounds great throughout; passionate, more committed and comfortable with these songs than he has seemed in years.
  6. Like Springsteen's recent return to classic form, the album feels more continuation than reprise.
  7. Revival is neither the great album nor the disappointment many are proclaiming it.
