Album Review

He may have taken a decade to cut his third album, but John Fogerty wasted no time in delivering a sequel to his blockbuster 1985 comeback Centerfield, rushing Eye of the Zombie into stores in 1986. Eye of the Zombie bears a surprisingly synthesized production, a clanking, cavernous collection of keyboards, squealing controlled distortion, and conflicting drum programs. To a certain extent, this unpleasantness may be intentional because at its core, Eye of the Zombie is a very angry album, finding Fogerty railing against all manners of ‘80s evils, whether it’s crass consumerism, blaring headlines, or the violent policies they chronicle. Instead of pairing this doom to some swampy choogle, Fogerty sets it to too-tight synth rhythms and encases it in glassy production that is the antithesis of Fogerty’s rage.

Customer Reviews

Flashes of brilliance, but not quite good enough

It has to be said there are 3, arguably 4 tracks that aren't the best Fogert'y ever done, but when it hits the spot, this album really hits it. 'Goin Back Home' is laid back opener featuring some screaming guitar work towards the end. Following this is the utterly magnificent title track, worth the price of the album on its own, and one of the best tracks he'll ever record. 'Violence is Golden' has a suprisingly heavy start, and 'Sail Away' is just wonderful. Certainly it's worth buying, and it's far better than its reputation, but it's not quite consisent enough to get more stars.
