So many hits!

Sensational - as good as the Beatles to my ears in terms of the quality of the 'run'

Their records always sounded amazing. On AM radio or your turntable.

Up Around The Bend has so much power. For some reason it always makes me think of the Ramones - traditional structure, but fuck me those guitars and drums have so much power, and the double tracked vocals are poppy yet hard as fuck.

Much like Springsteen, all of Fogerty's influences seem to be pre-Beatles.

"Who'll Stop the Rain" has to be a song at least partly about Vietnam, no? At least all of the concerns of the day in 1970. If you have to pick one best song on the LP, this has to be it...
