    Modern Creation is big, buzzy guitar pop that is as timeless as it is timely. [No. 108, p.60]

    Modern Creation may not their best collections of songs--that honor is still held by 2012’s Enjoy the Company--but there’s still some damn fine tunes to be found here.

    Modern Creation ups the ante for the Whigs, and it’s good to hear them--while still somewhat referencing the work of others--scaling back the ambition and simply delivering honest to goodness great rock tunes.

    Underneath the amplification, the songs are still there and still sturdy, but the buzz of stomp boxes hides that craft while also suggesting the songs run much longer than they do (most of the songs barely tap out over three minutes).

    While the songs aren’t the most complex ever written, even among The Whigs’ catalog, they are perfect for cruising with the windows down.
