    It is by turns beautiful and brash, driven and divine. [18 Mar 2017, p.50]

    Eternity could easily be a musical score as much as it is a step forward for abrasive punk. [Apr 2017, p.80]

    The switches from retro punk to camp stadium rock are seemless, and Creeper prove themselves worthy heirs to the bombastic rock bands of the past. [May 2017, p.103]

    The songs soar in unison with the band’s grand vision. Those songs are a riot, too.

    Every day is Halloween with Creeper, in the very best way.

    With Eternity, In Your Arms, Creeper have torn up their own sonic rulebook, giving them licence to roam musically wherever they please. It’s a fresh page in a new story for a band who are really just getting started.
  7. 80
    The mystery of James Scythe, Room 309, and The Callous Heart that unfolded on the run up to this release acted as a rabbit hole gateway into rock and roll at its most theatrical. Eternity, In Your Arms loses none of that sense of spectacle.

It's like some sort of grand rock opera, with melodrama by the bucketload! Usually in 2017 you'd expect this kind of ambition from a virtually unknown band to have blown up in their faces, but this album has defied those odds. Don't let the common label of "pop punk" or "pop rock" put you off, give this one a listen if you're a fan of rock full stop! Expand

    Thanks Creeper for this amazing album! Fast tracks like Black Rain (This might be one of my favorite song of the year), Poison Pens, and RoomThanks Creeper for this amazing album! Fast tracks like Black Rain (This might be one of my favorite song of the year), Poison Pens, and Room 309 sets a horror punk tone. Songs like Crickets (Another one of my favorites), and Misery sets up a more sad and slow tone. The album does lose me a bit around the end, but not to the point of boredom. If you are into pop-punk, punk, or horror punk, you need to check this out! Expand

    Although lyrically wise i don’t really think is that great and the instrumentals are pretty basic, they are sure to have gain a spot with a sound that we weren’t hearing at all lately, so that’s a plus for them.
    They have this story going on with “the Stranger” in the videoclips and their voices seems unique enough to expect something big on their upcoming albums.

    It's a decent album really. For a debut it could have been worse. A lot of the album feels a bit derivative with some pop punk and pop rockIt's a decent album really. For a debut it could have been worse. A lot of the album feels a bit derivative with some pop punk and pop rock bands from the 2000s. The MCR influence is very apparent and at one point the front man sounded eerily close to Dexter of the Offspring. Not to mention the production is too clean for my taste. But the band does make up for it with Will Gould being a pretty impressive front man, the instrumentation is very energetic and does reach the theatric horror kitsch the band is clearly pining for (again MCR is a very clear influence on these guys), and the lyrics, whether it is about a narrative or not, are pretty damn interesting and does save the album from being MOR. I can see this album growing on me and even liking this band. Right now I'm a bit lukewarm, but yeah I can see the hype. Wouldn't agree with the critic rating on here but eh. Expand
