AllMusic Review by

Around this time, Creation started putting out 12" versions (with an extra track or two) of some singles. The CD versions of Creation Soup contain the extra tracks--the vinyl is limited to the 7" tracks only (as a further unfortunate anti-vinyl argument, early copies of the LP box set had a pressing error in which one side of one record was deleted!). The third installment has yet more superlative singles by the Pastels, Biff Bang Pow!, Bodines, Primal Scream and Weather Prophets (the effervescent "(Sing) Like Frank Lymon") but it also shows Creation reaching out to include already established groups like Australia's Moodists and the widely adored Felt.
