Critic Reviews for Creem: America's Only Rock 'N' Roll Magazine

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (25) | Rotten (1)

  • Afforded insider access, Creem takes the opportunity to burnish the magazine's contribution to music journalism and rock 'n' roll culture.

  • That a new documentary about the people who wrote and published it is this close to a shambling mess is both appropriate and cheering.

    Ty Burr

    Boston Globe
    Top Critic
  • Yet "Creem..." does so little to showcase Creem's writing... that any viewer who hasn't read dozens of moldy back issues is left to wonder why anybody, inside or outside the magazine's office, would tolerate so much nonsense.

    August 7, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Captures the irreverent energy perfectly.

    August 6, 2020 | Full Review…
  • "Creem: America's Only Rock 'n' Roll Magazine" colorfully and convincingly makes the case for the magazine's lasting contributions, a sharp, hip piece of rock history told with the same kind of insolent wit that made Creem what it was.

    August 6, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Future scholars looking into the cultural mindset of the mid-'70s need to make a Creem immersion their first step. Without it, they won't have a clue what young people were thinking.
