Another Great Canadian Band
Chris | Buffalo, NY | 08/14/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"First off, don't believe the incorrect and false comparisons to bands like Third Eye Blind, Tonic and Matchbox 20. Moist isn't even remotely within the same wavelength as those wannabe rock bands. This is high-quality rock music. David Usher's modest, sincere yet almost fondly deranged vocal style make this album stand out from that previous to this release. The superb guitar style and musical composition also a factor on this hard, edgy release. There really isn't a bad track on the album. The standouts and best tracks are the big singles "Leave It Alone" "Resurrection" and "Tangerine" but tracks like "Creature" "Shotgun" and "Ophelia" deserve acclaim and recognition as well. "Disco Days" is very soft and disturbing in a wonderful way. The piano brings the emotion out with every firmly pressed key. It is definitely worth purchasing if you like strong and powerful rock music, but if you're expecting something along the lines of the bands mentioned above, then this probably isn't what you're looking to hear."
Could it be any averager?

"What can I say? There is absolutely nothing bad about this CD, and at the same time there is absolutely nothing very good about it either. From the angst-ridden 'Hate', the discordant brass of the title track, the acoustic bleakness of 'Gasoline', to 'Better Than You', this CD is too often bogged down in mediocrity. David Usher's distinct and pleasant voice helps give the band their own identity, but musically, there is very little originality or complexity overall. There are undoubtedly some decent-sounding songs in the lot - 'Leave It Alone', 'Shotgun', 'Baby Skin Tattoo' among them - but ultimately there isn't enough to set the band apart from other bands of its kind. Too often is the band compared to the likes of I Mother Earth and Our Lady Peace, and upon listening to this, I can't help to think that those comparisons are justified. Not a bad CD by any stretch of the imagination, but the band is much more talented than what's demonstrated here."

"Moist's Creature album is, perhaps, one of the finest examples of alternative rock music releases of the late 1990s. The energy exuded by this album leaves you absolutely exhausted (in a pleasant way) by the time the final track ends."
