Upset
‘Eternity, In Your Arms’ is an album about belief, whichever way you paint it. The record is also exactly what you were expecting it to be. And after everything, that’s no easy accomplishment.

Alternative Press

They are as fun as they are dramatic, combining lovely melodies with stampeding choruses. Eternity, In Your Arms could very easily be a musical score as much as it is a step forward for abrasive punk.

GIGsoup

An ambitious debut which brings some much-needed excitement to the British rock scene.

The Line of Best Fit

Clinging to youth in all its wonder - through every ounce of anger, confusion, desire, escape, heartache, and every other emotion that's felt so keenly first time around - Eternity, In Your Arms revels in everything it means to be alive.

NME

To see a British band forging their own hearse-driven path in a theatrical, grandiose way – last seen with My Chemical Romance’s ‘The Black Parade’ – is thrilling.

AllMusic

It's that propensity for almost Meat Loaf-worthy grandeur that makes Eternity, in Your Arms so consistently compelling.

Clash

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.

It's fine I guess, it's a really really light 60 imo. The album does start super strong but towards the middle and end it becomes really hit or miss and just... lame

The writing on the album can, and does, come off as cliché and boring a lot, especially on tracks like Misery where he sings:
"Just hold my hand for a little while
Misery never goes out of style"
Not to mention the melodramatic feel of that song.

Around the track "Hiding With The Boys" the album ... read more

Creeper debut with an album that is as sullen as it is powerful. Each song is uniquely dramatic and beautiful in its own aspect and it is with high hopes that I say that Creeper appear to have a bright future ahead of them.

While Creepers grandeous goth rock styling can come off as rather clique and overdone, the music behind the style is anything but. With the sound and feel of the record changing track by track, it's hard to get bored by Creepers rather impressive debut record.

Favorite Jams: Misery, Poisen Pens, Down Below

Lest Favorite: Darling

What a cheesy ass record, have no damn clue why this band gets the praised.

Edit: Sorta grew on me, but still has some cringe worthy moments on this album.

I wasn't sure what I was getting into when I heard this album was "gothic punk." It was really good though. It starts off kind of weak, but quickly picks up toward the middle and doesn't let go until the album's over. I read somewhere that this was a concept album based around a private detective who was really Captain Hook from Peter Pan? I didn't get that at ALL from this album honestly. Like, not even hints of that concept. So as a concept album this sucks. But as an album about ... read more
