It's never a pleasant experience to watch a great band implode before your very eyes, but CCR's pathetic final record, Pendulum, may be the very worst example of a group not knowing when to call it a day. Rhythm guitarist Tom Fogarty flew the coup before this album was recorded (due to ego clashes with his brother John), and CCR unwisely decided to continue as a trio. This may not have been such a bad move in and of itself, but the remaining three band members also decided to divide songwriting/singing duties equally amongst themselves for the first time - with tragically pathetic results. Drummer Doug Clifford and bassist Stu Cook are below average in terms of their singing abilities, and neither of them have the natural talent and/or practice required to compete with John Fogarty's stellar songwriting.

It remains unclear as to why CCR decided to democratize at this critical juncture - Cook and Clifford claim that Fogarty was creatively spent, while Fogarty says he was tired of fighting the others for control of the band and simply let them have their way - but regardless of this the end result is awful. The tracks still kind of sound like CCR, but they come off sounding more like a crappy pub band than the mighty Creedence of yore. Worst of the bunch is Clifford's moronic country-influenced ditty 'Tearin' Up The Country,' although I suppose 'What Are You Gonna Do' takes the cake in terms of being the purest generic, corny drivel you could ever imagine. Put it to you this way, there aren't very many times when I prefer my crappy singing voice to somebody else's, but this is one of them. Atrocious.

Unfortunately, the problems don't end here. John Fogarty isn't exactly on top of his game, contributing only two songs that even come close to matching his previous output (those two being the heartfelt ballad 'Someday Never Comes' and the classic CCR rocker 'Sweet Hitchhiker'), while the mellow-to-the-point-of-boring 'Lookin' For A Reason' absolutely screams "outtake." The only other Fogarty moment is the lame, off-the-cuff cover of 'Hello Mary Lou,' which isn't horrible per say, but aims far too low by the usual Fogarty standards.

In the end, this is a poor way for CCR to close their illustrious career, and one can only feel grateful that this is their last album. Perhaps the band had lost all of its creative spark, or maybe John intentionally sabotaged the band's career by letting the lunatics take over the asylum, but regardless of the reasoning behind it, Mardi Gras stinks.
