In case you haven’t figured this out about me, I’m kind of a nut when it comes to music. “Guess The Next Single Off Of This Album” and “Name The Artist” are among my favorite games to play.
Yesterday I had a bit of free time so I was catching up on my Rolling Stone magazines when I cam across a review of John Fogerty’s new album “Wrote A Song For Everyone.” Many of the names of the artists with whom he sings intrigued me – Keith Urban, Foo Fighters, Bob Seger.
I know I am a little late to learn about this album and I am going to blame that on all of the homework that comes with working on your master’s degree.
Anyhow, fate was on my side today. I was reading about that album yesterday and what album do you think my mom’s boss let her borrow today.
I think you guessed it!
Let me tell you what happened when my dad put it on his fancy speakers:
My ear grew little, tiny hands and started pickaxing my ear canals to widen them so that I could hear the whole song at once and take in all of the amazing-ness that is this album. I can tell you that this album is going to be on repeat in my car (where my fancy speakers are) for the next couple of years.
I give this album 19 out of 5 stars. The only disappointment was Jennifer Hudson’s version of “Proud Mary.” She’s definitely not Tina.
Long story short, go out and buy it…or download it on iTunes. Just consume it.
