RATING: 10+

I had been been debating it over the past few days, but I have finally come to a decision: I'm giving Green River a coveted 10+ rating. It's really that good. I mean, it's almost a CCR best-of collection in its own right, as half-a-dozen or so of the tracks have become staples on Creedence compilations. A few of the standout tracks on Bayou Country had hinted at CCR's future greatness, but Green River is the point where you can confidently say that Creedence found its own musical niche.

Gone are the overlong jams and the cover tunes (well, OK, they do cover the R&B classic 'Night and Day,' but it rocks), and in their place are eight super-duper Fogarty compositions that prove he is one of the greatest American songwriters of all-time. I especially like the fact that even though all of the tracks have the signature CCR sound, none of the tracks sound alike. Whether it's the crunching guitars of 'Green River,' the barroom stomp of 'Tombstone Shadow,' or the searing electric blues of 'Commotion,' every note on this album is interesting. True, CCR doesn't break any new musical ground here, and the band stubbornly clings to its basic two guitars/ bass/ drums formula on every single song, but the quality of the songs and the emotive quality of the performances renders these criticisms meaningless.

John Fogarty's storytelling abilities have become even more impressive, as evidenced by the great narratives on tracks like the 'Lodi,' in which Fogarty tells the depressing tale of a lousy pub band playing dives, set to a laid back country-rock shuffle. Other standout tracks include 'Wrote A Song For Everyone,' which serves as the template for a slew of future CCR ballads. My personal favorite, though, has got to be the almost criminally catchy 'Bad Moon Rising,' a jaunty little blues-rock tune married to "doom and gloom" lyrics that predict an impending disaster (e.g. "hope you've got your things together/ hope you're quite prepared to die"). In fact, much of the album has a feeling of unease about it, whether it's the dark humor of 'Tombstone Shadow,' or else the depressing 'Sinister Purpose,' which has a rather self-explanatory title.

In the end, Green River is a huge step forward for the band, and remains one of the greatest albums of its era. CCR were never innovators, but why experiment when you're the ultimate pub rock band?
