Founded in 1983, Creation Records was a runaway success as an independent rock music label. It was also a business disaster and a cautionary rock ‘n’ roll tale — as revealed in this candid documentary about the company’s rise and demise.

3 1/2 out of 5 stars. This is probably mostly the buzz of nostalgia talking here but I really dug this documentary and hearing all these great bands again. The interviews were fun and informative. So much more makes sense to me now when I think about that time in my life.
Really great music, and for being a music documentary, it's absolutely brilliant: cohesive, non-tiresome, good tempo, sadly lacking a bit on Super Furry Animals, would have loved to see it. Still, a great story.
Bonus: no subtitles for Scottish brogue = excellence!
