This is a fun old school ‘70s punk album by a criminally underheard band. As punk albums go, this is solid and it totally rocks. But the Saints are also a bit slicker than some of their peers, with somewhat better musical chops and a willingness to go for more complex arrangements. The horns are an interesting addition on a couple of the tracks. I could see putting this on to power me through a dull project at work. Fave tracks: (I’m) Misunderstood, A Minor Aversion, The Perfect Day.

"That's not a knife, THAT's A KNOIFE" Never heard of these Australians but they've got great sounds and I totally dig them. Eternally Yours is dirty, lo-fi 70's punk rock plus. The album kicks off with 'Know Your Product' featuring a full horns section and a singer full of blast before slinking into the sounds you'd expect to find at venues like Al's Bar or CBGB's. However, the band doesn't stay within the confines of a late '70s four-piece punk band. The horns make another appearance on 'Ourstralia' and there's strong harmonica on 'Run Down'. There are subtle changes in their sound throughout the record. The 'Untitled' track and "Memories are Made of This, / The Ballad' are slower paced. 'A Minor Aversion' has a country western twang to it and 'No Your Product' would've made a perfect contribution to the Repo Man soundtrack. It's hard not to smile to the fun had while recording 'Do the Robot'. This track is complete with giggles, sloppy clapping and a chorus chanting 'dum-do-de-dum-dum' in the background. So good... This album is a great listen and these guys must've had some good times touring back in the day.

Mais quel est l'intérêt de cet album à part de créer la confusion dans nos esprits lorsque l'une de ses pistes tombera lors du Grand Quiz du Générateur qui se tiendra je vous le rappelle en 2024 ?L'album ressemble à la fois à tout et à rien. À propos du Grand Quiz, vous avez probablement lu les derniers sondages réalisés par plusieurs instituts me donnant largement favori face à mon concurrent elmaghreb.

I had not heard of them before this album came up here for me. Wow! Very impressive. Super-tight and musical for a "punk" band. Much as I love a lot about the punk movement, some (maybe many?) punk bands seemed too hellbent on proving they are anti-establishment and could veer into dissonance for dissonance's sake. What I absolutely LOVE about this album is the balance between how strongly steeped in early punk it is yet how superbly skilled the musicianship is. A punk band with tight rhythms and even some freakin' brass arrangements? Hecks, YES! I'll now listen to this band regularly.

Know Your Product is a great opening track. This is a real straight ahead, classic punk album, with the first sounds of ska. No, Your Product has a truck full of balls. The bonus tracks are kind of samey but i still liked some of it

Divertido y energético, con un toque de instrumentos de viento que le da un aire estridente y festivo por ratos. Canciones que más disfrute: Wild Affair y New Center of the Universe, mención especial a A Minor Aversión que marca un cambio de ritmo y da un descanso auditivo con una vibra más chill. Mood: pedos peleando con canguros estos mad lads.

3.5 | Conocía el nombre de The Saints de manera académica por documentales donde los mencionaban con toda la oleada de Ramones, Sex Pistols, The Clash, Patti Smith etc. pero nunca había escuchado un disco de ellos. Me sorprende por qué no son tan conocidos como los otros grupos. Demuestran perfectamente algo que mencionaba sobre los Sex Pistols y cómo, cuando analizamos realmente, los Pistols merecen crédito por su sentido de imagen y vestuario más que por su música; The Saints los arrastran musicalmente en todos los aspectos pero creo son muy poco conocidos. Esperaba el punk bien hecho inicios/mediados de los 70s y terminó siendo más que eso. Sí, tiene mucho punk franco pero a ratos se sienten esos puntos de tratar de ser distintos, secciones de metales como si tuvieran una embarrada de ska y fueran a influenciar a The Clash en el futuro y algunas canciones que suenan tal cual a rock mucho más ochentero como si escuchara uno a los Meat Puppets, Talking Heads o los Smiths. Incluso a mi parecer estas canciones que suenan tan distintas y ochenteras (Memories are Made of This, A Minor Aversion y Untitled) son lo mejor que se le saca al disco, sin quitar mérito de las otras canciones que aunque más uniformes a lo esperado siguen siendo bastante buenas. Me da gusto haber escuchado este disco, haberlo conocido y quizá intentar incluso conocer un poco más de esta banda cuando tenga un rato libre.

Saved Prior: None Saved Off Rip: Know Your Product, Memories Are Made of This, Private Affair, Run Down, Orstralia, New Centre of the Universe, Untitled Cutting Edge: None Overall Notes: Surprisingly really liked this one. A 5/5 punk album, unfortunately the downside of that being that punk kinda sounds the same a lot of the time. I had to check my computer multiple times to make sure I hadn't accidentally shuffled the album because some of the riffs sounded the exact same. Still a really good album, but that's why it's not a 5.

Shout out to Johnny P, one of my college roommates who was way into punk music. Senior year Johnny P had a badass mohawk and fought off a would be mugger outside RoFo. Busted up the side of his face something good. The first track of the album, with the brass and saxophone (!) opening, certainly was enjoyable… and misleading. Most of the album is punkish., but not entirely. I would call the album proto-punk … did I just make that up or is it a thing? Whatever it is, the punk songs are more accessible than hardcore punk bands like The Dead Kennedy’s or Minor Threat. This is a good thing. And there are several more rock-like songs sprinkled throughout such as: Know Your Product, Memories Are Made of This, A Minor Aversion, and Untitled. No, Your Product and River Deep Mountain High are highlights of the punk songs while Run Down is a punk song with prominent harmonica, which I had never heard before. And a punk song with saxophone (Orstralia)…wtf is going on?!? I’ll tell you what is going on…a great marriage between punk and other non-traditional elements. Proto-punk…see I told you it’s a thing. This album also makes me happy because I feel bit closer to Johnny P who has been having a hard time in adulthood. You know that would be mugger? We’ll it was really Johnny P getting chased for shoplifting from RoFo. Their fried chicken was delectable after all. His face really did get busted up something good. However, it was because he was drunk off his ass and tripped over a curb.

Having never heard of this band in my thirty-something years on this planet, this is the second time in a month I've been compelled to listen to this. Once was from reading a history of the Sex Pistols, where this band were decried as too competent for punk tastes (and sported too prosaic a look); and now this app. It's weathered the years rather well, I think - like some kind of unholy alliance between the Stooges and the Rumour. I reckon you can draw a straight line between this and modern acts like the Hives and Barrence Whitfield & the Savages. I like all the bands I've mentioned so far, and I like this too - energetic, spiky but with enough guile to keep one interested once the adrenaline has settled.

I love this record, and am shocked that I don't own it already. (It's going on my want list). I actually really love the horns, although I know they were divisive at the time. I think they give the album extra punch, without seeming out of place in a punk album. Maybe we are more comfortable with genre cross-pollination these days. I think it also has become clear the extent to which punk was not musical ground zero, but rather a return to the essence of rock and roll, re-imagined in a new way. (Thanks to Simon Reynolds, for that insight). In the same way that the Pistols called back to the Eddie Cochran, Carl Perkins rock and roll, the Saints have a bit more Ike Turner in them. International Robots and the (bonus track) of River Deep Mountain High show the rock and roll roots of the Saints. Know Your Product and This Perfect Day are dead set classics, performed (as all of this album) with gusto and infectious energy.

A clear bridge form punk to post-punk, one hears a lot of what was to come in the 1980s and ‘90s. The sneering vocals sound an awful lot like The Fall. The Smithereens stole “Memories Are Made of This” for “Blood and Roses.” and doesn’t “Orstralia” sound like “Sweet and Tender Hooligan.” 3.5 rounding up for being so influential.

Punk agradable que con los metales que le agregaron llega a ser interesante en algunas de las canciones. Al principio, con la horrible portada, esperaba un poquito menos, luego, después de las primeras dos rolas, me gustó bastante y estaba ahora esperando más y el resto del disco no lo logró. Además, la versión que encontré tiene como 800 tracks extras, así que nunca supe donde parar para volver a empezar. El resultado es que, me quedo con un par de rolas y eso le da el 3.

Me pareció interesante el uso de alientos por parte de un grupo de rock punk. Me recordaron un poco a Save Ferris, o a The Knack. No sé si fueron los primeros en hacer una combinación así pero por la fecha de grabación seguro fueron algo novedoso. Mi queja del disco es que todas las canciones son como muy iguales y escuchar el disco completo resulta tedioso. Guardé “Know your Product” y “Private Affair”, eso le dio las 3 estrellas. Por cierto, han de haber estado pachequísimos cuando grabaron International Robots XD

Early punk, with added horns, but still feels more punk than ska. Very interesting. I was continuing to dig this, and then the R-word pops up prominently in track 3. Sigh.

3.8 - I appreciate this more than lots of other punk records that fixate on punk style (wearing cool clothes, looking tough on the street, being part of the club circuit). These tracks explore more of the punk ethos and mindset - rejecting consumerism, rejecting social norms and expectations. As a band, these guys sound more cohesive than some of the fuckboys that crowd the genre.

Waffling between a 3 and a 4 here. I’m a sucker for that 70’s punk sound, which this delivers in spades, as well as enough variety to spice things up. But the songwriting is pretty inconsistent here.

It's a fun listen. Early Brit-punk was one of my fav genres a lifetime ago but I wasn't familiar with these Aussies, who fit right into the genre despite geography suggesting otherwise. It definitely scratches that 70s-80s punk itch, and although they do stay confined to their genre (making it a liiiiittle repetitive), there's enough experimentation and variety to keep it from slipping into the boring-zone. I enjoyed it. Bit basic looking back at artists doing similar things at the time, but was probably really solid album when it came out,

Alkuun oli ihan jeekkiksen kuulosta, mutta kokonaisuutena tasapakasua ja mielenkiinto lopahti kesken. Ei jatkoon.

- yeah this is alright - I hear some Pixies in here, maybe they influenced the pixies - "Run Down" harmonica is like King Giz - not bad overall

Not my #1 fave. It would do in a pinch. But I don’t see myself pulling this one up for fun.

This was just an ok album, it didn't grab me like some of the other albums did, kinda unremarkable.

¿Punk australiano? ¿En 2009? Primera noticia Fali. El disco original eran 13 canciones y en esta versión extendida llega a las 27 y una duración de algo más de una hora. Suena bien y es interesante conocer grupos de los que no tenía noticia.

No clue and honestly don't want to spend any more time on this. Liked some of the songs but it just dragged on too long for my liking

Somewhat repetitive punk that fails to capture both the aggression and politics of classic punk

Speed was evidently a factor in picking their drummer. Or their dtug of choice. Either way

Not as bad as I thought it might be. Still, a little goes a long way. While I can appreciate it as a groundbreaker, it’s not something I’d listen to again.

just really whatever early rock. It's not really that great not bad background music I guess, but it goes on forever Sort of sucked, didn't enjoy any of it, but at least got through it all

Pretty average punk style album. Some songs had good instrumentals and there were riffs that resembled that of grunge. Other songs had the classic 70s foreign punk style. 5.7/10

Really wanted to like this and it wasn’t bad. I’m a huge fan of all the old school punk lately and I even gave this a second listen to see if it would grow on me but it just came off generic and like a less fun Ramones. It didn’t really stand out for me Fave tracks: “(I’m) Misunderstood” “International Robots”

Typical punk music. Messy, atonal vocals, thrashing guitars with only a semblance of rhythm. Pass. Not one-star, but hard pass.

The hardest yet for me to get through. I dunno if it was just an off day or I just really didn't like it that much but it was all pretty forgettable to me and sounded just like everything else that would be in the same section at the record store 🤷🏼‍♂️

Not my usual cup of tea, but a surprisingly musical punk album (I enjoyed the horns and harmonica). Like a lot of punk, a few songs were pretty indistinguishable from each other. But I liked Lost and Found and Minor Aversion. The last track seemed suitably Australian

Eternally Yours by The Saints (1978) I like the horns (some don’t, you see—pigeon holers think they’re not ‘genre appropriate’).  This fast-paced Australian rock delivers well-aimed complaints against deceptive advertising, systemic exploitation, freedom-denying conformity, and manipulative lies. And that’s just side one.  Snarly Jaggeresque vocals, proto-punk power chords, sloppy lead guitar garnishes, and other typical rock stylings. Nothing fancy, but plenty of energy.  In “Orstralia”, we hear a nice, perverted, patriotic anthem “We got no problems, got no wars/And you don't need your brain no more. What’s not to like? And for a (small) bit of a change, the track “Untitled” is a love song carried by speedy 12-string acoustic that somehow manages squeeze in some anger and angst. Poor girl! The closing track “International Robots” suitably and not subtly demonstrates that The Saints don’t take themselves too seriously. Nor should the listener.  This is serviceably mindless music for uptempo driving when you really need to get somewhere fast.  2/5

Hmm, I daresay it was better at the time.

More of the same crap. I'm getting real cynical toward 70's-80's punk/post punk/alt stuff from this list. The integration of the horn section was good, I liked the moody songs somewhere around track 3/track 4 but not really impressed.

It is a punk rock album. I was not familiar with any of the songs. I don't think I know any other music by The Saints. The album was relatively short and it was alright.

Quite Ramonesy. Not a suprise given the year it was released. Some good tracks, but too many throw away ones for me

I don't think I'll ever understand punk. This is the musical equivalent of watching concrete dry. Maybe it was good live? This is unpalatable and I barely got through it. All the songs sound exactly the same.

Able to stick with this longer while working than a lot of garage punk.
