4 stars An all-around great offering of delicate, intricate, rocking, and experimental fusion. "Creatures" has a unique sound filled with eccentric effects, solid grooves, bizarre grooves, and great playing throughout. There is enough interesting musical ideas here to keep the listener occupied for many listens, each time finding some new hidden layer of sound to tickle the nerves.

"Creatures" is at its best when turning out it's often eccentric (but never silly) jams featuring the band's dynamic melodies and solo playing. All of the songs have a jazz feel which really makes them stand out and leave an impression; the use of alternate instruments-- like violin-- are put to good use. My only complaint is Lieto's bland vocals (which are otherwise great) during the final extended track.

Recommended to those seeking something jazzy and mellow yet engaging.

Songwriting: 4 Instrumental Performances: 4 Lyrics/Vocals: 3 Style/Emotion/Replay: 4
