Having made their name as Britain's top Acid Jazz band, JTQ spread their wings on this release, which included the music they'd done for the Austin Powers movie - a nigh-on perfect match. Along with the topically popular spy soundtrack pieces, there was the perennial Acid Jazz (think Traffic or Brian Auger at their best), and the out-of-left-field title track (grandly subtitled Fanfare for a 3rd Millennium), which seemed to be intent on paying homage to Keith Emerson and prog rock in general. A mixed bag, but well worth a sift through the contents. --Chris Nickson

Hard driving music for people bored with rock & roll

"JTQ Creation starts out with wailing police sirens and kicks in with a rousing, rocked-up version of the Starsky & Hutch theme. After a fast beginning, Creation stays in high gear for most of its 43 minutes. This isn't soul music, or funk, but more like a cross between 60's & 70's TV & spy themes and English prog rock like Emerson Lake & Palmer. There isn't much subtlety to this collection, but that's the band's uniqueness. They're using their high testosterone levels in a constructive way: By playing the heck out of their instruments. And believe me, these guys are talented! If you love to rock and are ready to stretch a little, try JTQ."
Great road music

"I had this playing in my car for several months straight and never was bored. Tight, funky grooves dominate, though one of the exceptions, track 7, is probably my favorite because of its dreamy quality."
