5.0 out of 5 stars a near-perfect piece of rock `n' roll for the ages May 9 2014
By Charlie Quaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
6th album from terminally underrated Athens, Georgia band (now in Nashville) is a vibrant, diverse
hunk of rock `n' roll that hangs on to the core of power with a fiercely melodic intensity. The
Whigs have injected their roots-based rock with a potent shot of psychedelic courage that paves
a path for compellingly structured guitar wildness and a wider range of inspired songwriting.
Soaring, garagey riffs are blasted out of amps turned past "11", while melodies buzz & swarm
with a tradition-influenced honey-sting. The band is tight, the hooks are abundant, and the
songs beg for repeated listens. Recalls bands like Sweet Apple, Deer Tick, Secret Machines,
Water Liars, Coke Weed, Kings Of Leon, Pink Mountaintops, the Replacements. This is an
album that deserves a lot more attention than it is likely to get. It's bristling with the kind of
energy and musical flow that grabs the listener in multiple ways. "Modern Creation" is a near-
perfect piece of rock `n' roll for the ages. Recommended.
5.0 out of 5 stars Love all their last four cd's Sept. 7 2014

Their style is all over the place. Love all their last four cd's. Being different and not shoehorned into a slow rock or a hard rocking band
keeps them creative and refreshing. Everyone that I introduced them to for the first time always ask who they are and why are they not on
the radio.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Whigs return to more/harder guitar sounds April 22 2014
By Paul Allaer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The Whigs are an indie-rock trio, hailing from Athens, GA. Their second album, 2008's "Mission Control", was their break-out album, and ended up in my year-end "Best Albums" list. After that, the band continued tweaking its sound, and as a result 2010's "In the Dark" and 2012's "Enjoy The Company" were not quite as good (for me anyway). Forward another two years, and here we get the band's 5th studio album.

"Modern Creation" (10 tracks; 39 min.) starts off with a hard-charging "You Should Be Able To Feel it", and then charges on with "Asking Strangers For Directions", and by the time the third track "The Particular" comes around, there is no mistaking anymore that the band has gone back to the harder guitar sound from its earliest albums. "Hit Me" is almost danceable! The title track caps the first half of the album. In the second half of the album, the band continues to deliver good music, check out the stomping "She Is Everywhere" and the underlying guitar droning on "I Couldn't Lie". The album closes with "The Difference Between One and Two", arguably the weakest/least interesting track (for me) on the album. But aside from that, I really like the album quite a bit, and it is for me their best album since "Mission Control".

But you haven't had the full "Whigs experience" if you haven't seen these guys in concert. I've seen them a number of times over the years, and each and every time I walk away afterwards impressed how much energy they bring to their live sets. If you have a chance to see them live, don't miss them! Meanwhile, "Modern Creation" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Rock and Roll May 27 2014
By Tim Fortescue - Published on Amazon.com

I love the Whigs. Very minimal studio tinkering on this album, so it's different than the last 2. Love the last album, like this one.
