  1. Q Magazine
    80
    Possibly the greatest campfire singalong ever. [Dec 2009, p. 113]
  2. For this warm set of 11 country-time covers (including a track from his 1986 album, "Eye of the Zombie"), Fogerty turns to his speed-dial list of superstars.
  3. Fogerty plays it too safe on sleepy tunes like John Denver's 1974 'Back Home Again,' but you can't deny his scratchy growl on deep cuts like the rockabilly barnburner 'Haunted House.'
  4. Ride Again isn't a raucous rock & roll album, it's a relaxed good time, a little bit of cheerful nostalgia that's pretty charming.
  5. For all that firepower, the follow-up can’t touch the rough, quixotic charms of its predecessor. But it has moments.
  6. Mojo
    60
    The Blue Ridge Rangers Rides Again - the sequel to his 1973 solo debut - repeats the formula, its 12 covers of country standards and downhome favourites creating a warm, hearthside companion to its predecessor. [Dec 2009, p. 91]
  7. Uncut
    60
    It's a sincere but over-comfortable trawl-lovers of the man's rockin' fire will be disappointed. [Dec 2009, p. 92]
