Cosmos' Factory includes "Up Around the Bend", "Travelin' Band", "Run Through the Jungle", "Ramble Tamble" and "Lookin' Out My Back Door". The quality throughout is consistent (except on "Ooby Dooby")

A very good, solid album, but not spectacular. Almost like a compilation. No denying the talent level of the band, which is top notch.

John Fogerty is some songwriter; the band sounds great too.

Only Creedence could follow the release of three albums in one year with their best one yet. These guys were even more prolific than the British Invasion bands of their time. Great songwriting and musicianship on display here. A prime example of American rock music done right.

Le dilatazioni di "Ramble tamble", i lunghi assolo di "I heard it through the grapevine" ma poi anche le perfette strutture di "Looking out my back door", il manuale del perfetto chitarrista di "Ooby dooby" e tanto altro, in un disco che ha la statura del classico come pochi altri.

This album is an absolute delight. Great opener with Ramble Tamble and the momentum never lets up. Whether its the light and fun Looking Out My Backdoor, the the all out jam that is Run Through The Jungle, or the classic Who'll Stop The Rain, this record never disappoints. The absolute highlight is I Heard It Through The Grapevine, which plays like a swampy When The Levee Breaks (even though this song was released one year earlier). One of the greatest albums of the 70's and deserves a spot among the best of all time.

The last great Creedence Clearwater Revival album. Cosmo's factory, is a return to form after the slight disappointment of, Willie and the poor boys. Great songs as always, especially, run through the jungle, up around the bend, and, who'll stop the rain. Great unpretentious rock'n'roll.
