Album Reviews: Deja Vu All Over Again by John FogertyOften when a rock icon releases an album late in his career, he’ll try to prove that he’s still relevant in the changing times. I shudder to think of John Fogerty trying crunk-style hip-hop or ambient electronica, so I'm thrilled to report that he has done nothing of the sort. In fact, he’s made exactly the kind of album you’d want to hear from the man behind all those great Creedence Clearwater Revival tunes of yore.
The title track opener tells you everything you need to know - it’s “Déjà Vu (All Over Again).” “Honey Do” has John playfully examining the husband and wife dynamic of doing the household chores, while “Rhubarb Pie” is his fun ditty about seizing the day. Instead of focusing on the negatives of being an aging rocker (who, not incidentally, had his Creedence catalog stolen from him by his label), he’s made a fun, loose set of tunes without bitterness. It sounds like he really had a great time making this record.
Fogerty isn’t reinventing the wheel with this release, and that’s a good thing. Considering he’s largely responsible for the wheel in the first place, upbeat bluesy roots-rock is always welcome from him. As effortless as it seems, it’s strange that it took him seven years to release it. Here’s hoping we don’t have to wait another seven years. - Doug Kamin
