-- "WROTE A SONG FOR EVERYONE is a testament to the continuing truth and power of Fogerty's greatest hits."
Billboard (p.47) - "Creedence Clearwater Revival's songs get new life as the Foo Fighters pound through 'Fortunate Son'...and Kid Rock adds loops to 'Born on the Bayou'..."
Q (Magazine) - p.973 stars out of 5
-- "Vocally, Fogerty still shreds, and this lively album omits enough of his gems to hint at a sequel."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.883 stars out of 5
-- "Fogerty teams up heartily with Foo Fighters, Brad Paisley and others -- without diverging radically from the original script."
Paste (magazine) - "[The songs] serve as a reminder of Fogerty's singular potency. The far-flung vocalists also demonstrate how vast his songwriting and cultural influence is, comfortably enfolding each without losing the essence of his intent."
