      Déjà Vu All Over Again, John Fogerty, 2004

      ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      Many consider 'Déjà Vu All Over Again' to be John Fogerty's comeback album. For those of us that have been following his work through the 90's you will see that this is the start of a new period of furious work that began with this album. If you've heard the excellent 'Blue Moon Swamp' from 1997 then you will know how good his sound can be. Fogerty is a notorious perfectionist and worked on that album for quite a number of years junking most of it before starting again. Fogerty couldn't build on that album until 2004, with this relatively short new album. He actually manages to squeeze in 10 songs into the 34 minutes, making it a pretty short album by today's standards (but certainly not the 60's)

      The album's title track talks about America's war in Iraq at the time and makes links between it and Vietnam. It's a clever song that sets the tone of the album; a blend of country rock seamlessly filters throughout the album even if some of the songs drift into other territory. For instance, we get a bit of psychedelic rock (In the Garden), Ramones style punk (She's Got Baggage) and even disco (Radar). Fogerty also gets to go a bit Dire Straits with Mark Knopfler on 'Nobody's Here Anymore' which does sound like a long lost Dire Straits song. Fogerty also goes back to doing what he does best with the Creedence a-like 'Wicked Old Witch'.

      Fogerty makes the songs sound so natural and easy on the ear it almost makes you gloss over the technical musicianship that the man has. Take for instance a song like 'Honey Do' where he sings about the wife nagging at him on his day off. Not only is really quite amusing, but the actual musicianship of his finger picking is quite excellent. Coupled with a very distinctive 'Creedence' sound that so many others have tried to replicate over the years (Status Quo for instance) you have the recipe for a great album.

      My personal favourite songs on the album are 'Rhubarb Pie' and 'Honey Do', mainly for the simplicity of the sound and the style in which they are delivered. It's an album of great driving music that needs to be heard loud!
