CD Reviews

This is it!
Jeffrey Jotz | 03/17/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"These guys were without a doubt a better mod band than the Who! Shel Talmy thought so (or something to that affect) and so do I. If you only know the Creation through "Making Time" (on the RUSHMORE soundtrack) this is where you can dig deeper. And it's just a start. Because there is a vol. 2!"
Mesmerizingly Rocking
Jeffrey Jotz | 04/30/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Of course, as a youngster I was more exposed to the likes of the Who and Kinks, both of whom I liked well enough (more so the Kinks because my dad loves them and used to rock out in his car to "Set Me Free"). Never *really* loved the Who in large part due to the, let's face it, lame vocals (except Townshend's vocals, which rock). Knew there had to be some other vintage Brit rock from back then and thanks to the Rushmore link, have discovered the Creation. It's brilliant. Indeed, at first listen sure sounds a lot like those other 60's Brit icon bands but since the Creation is new to me, it's like... like hearing the old Who with a good vocalist. The song "Making Time", I am sure you'll agree, is every bit the "hit" "My Generation" is. The first of many should-have-been hits on this cd."
A definitive comp of an influential Mod band
Jeffrey Jotz | Rahway, NJ USA | 07/06/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Fans of the mod-soaked Brit invasion stuff of the Who/Kinks/Action/Small Faces universe will enjoy this lengthy CD comp.Searing guitar, snotty lyrics and Moon-esque drumming highlight this mesmerizing snapshot of the mid-60s mod era in England. The Creation is much more influential than you think today -- people even named a label after 'em (Creation Records, silly). Hey, if Pete Townshend was a member of this band's fan club, then you know they gotta rock!"
