4.0 out of 5 stars Rampant 60s subculture. 28 July 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Creation, what a group, never released an album, had a constantly changing line up and yet produced a collection of singles most other bands of the same period (bar the Beatles) would have been proud of. Making Time and How Does It Feel... are the real highlights of this compilation but there are plenty of others who compete closely, Painter Man and Biff Bang Pow. Overall a wonderful, quirky sometimes vicious album in which all the songs (even the few slow, thoughtful ones) seem to be performed by a band with a twisted smile and a slightly manic view of the world. Compare with their Freakbeat competitors of the same period, The Who, and they come out more than favourably. Buy this album! Oh...., and try and hear the points where the guitar is played with a violin bow (a prototype Jimmy Page)>

5.0 out of 5 stars How Does It Feel To Not Know This Band....? 27 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I haven't heard these songs for 25 years, when I was first introduced to The Creation by a huge Eddie Phillips fan. While recently updating my music collection I came across an old cassette by them. Although I hadn't completely forgotten them I had forgotten the impact some of these songs had on me then. Cool Jerk, How Does It Feel & Making Time especially, but also Painter Man, Ostrich Man, Life Is Just Beginning and Nightmares. I love their version of Bony Maronie which I'd never heard before.
Regardless of whatever was going on within the band these songs stand right up there with the best of the mid 60s.
This is a must have addition, not just to your 60s collection, but your whole music collection.
I now get Eddie Phillips....

4.0 out of 5 stars A Poppish Art 20 Dec 2005
By Dinga
Format:Audio CD
AAAAAGHHH!! The Creation come booming out of your speakers via this superbly compiled and value for cash CD. They looked cool, detested each other, experimented with all kinds of (for it's time) groundbreaking stuff, wrote instantly memorable 3 minute classics absolutely nowhere for their bother!!
"Making Time" is the obvious hit here with it's clanging riff, violin bow solo (I wonder if anyone has tried to play the violin with a plectrum) and straight to the point lyrics. It is deservedly a recognised "mod classic" now and has stood the test of time with ease. Eddie Phillips has to go down as one of the sharpest dressed and underrated guitarists ever, executing his innovations on other classics here namely "Biff! Bang! Pow!" alongside the artschool disillusionment echoed in "Painterman", (which thanks to Boney M packs em' in at backstreet Karoke bars the length and breadth of the country)! "How Does It Feel" rattles your fillings and boasts one of the best intros and spontaneous guitar solos I have ever heard (Ride actually did a quite faithful cover of this a few years back which is proof enough that you can't kill a good song!) and not forgetting the simplicity of "Try and Stop Me", as elementary a lesson in the three minute pop song as "I Can't Explain" was for The Who. Uncomplicated, catchy and in the case of "Through My Eyes", malevolently beautiful. The Creation had so many facets.
The line up changed often and at one point included future Face and Stone Ronnie Wood.

4.0 out of 5 stars Creative brutality 23 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I don't know what became of the members of this band but it wouldn't surprise me to hear that they'd gone into the demolition business. Creation's music is the sound of a band trying to break down the walls of their studio. Think of early Who at their most destructive and apply a tad more brute force and you've just about got this band. Yet they still retained a sense of craft and discipline (harmonies, no less).
They wrote some very good songs that fell just short of the greatness needed to break into the first rank. Collectively though they amount to a substantial collection. The first half dozen songs are of uniformly high quality. "I Am The Walker" and "Can I Join Your Band" suggest a significant development in their writing. The later songs, while creditable, are not quite as wholehearted. It's the band's all-out attack that makes the earlier material that much more effective.
The compilation also contains a few covers, most of which are ill-judged. "Cool Jerk" is OK though a staple of many R&B bands of this era but "Bony Moronie" doesn't suit them. "Hey Joe" would also sound potent had Jimi Hendrix not also recorded it. Meanwhile, "Like A Rolling Stone" is a poor choice for a band of The Creation's style. I've heard many versions of this over-hyped song and have yet to come across one that lifted it above the ordinary.
Nevertheless, this twenty-four track compilation makes a worthwhile addition to any collection of 1960s R&B/pop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Mod Sounds 23 Jun 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'd heard of The Creation & had a few songs on some mod compilation albums for a while so was looking forward to hearing more....and after the first listen I was asking myself why I hadn't bought everything they ever released years ago!! Great album, great sound & fabulous songs..If you like early The Who, The Sonics...or just quality 60's this won't be disappointed!!

More than any other band of the 60's The Creation inspired me to form my own band. Their music was so punchy, simple, direct. Why were they never as big in the UK as Europe? Read more

No, that's not their only claim to fame. The Creation, should they have been able to continue the spirit of the first 4 tracks on here, would have been as big as perhaps The Who. Read more
