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.

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.

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.

Another punk masterpiece. This one is hailing from Australia. The lyrics are good, too. And if the music's not exactly up to the level of The Clash and The Damned, it's still far better than the tracks usually played by punk bands such as The Undertones or The Jam. Number of albums left to review or just listen to:  less than 800, I've temporarily lost count here Number of albums from the list I find relevant enough to be mandatory listens:  approximately a half so far (including this one) Albums from the list I *might* include in mine later on: a quarter Albums from the list I will certainly *not* include in mine (many others are more important): the last quarter

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.

Добавить нечего 9 Мне нравится духовой инструмент на фоне. Это саксофон или нет? Добавляю 10 Очень похожий на что-то ещё трек. Не удивило. 11 Уныленько... 12 Вот это повеселее. Хороший трек. И риф гитарный классный в середине трека. Добавляю 13 Это продолжение предыдущего трека?) Хорошая работа The Saints. Вывод: Дальше слушать смысла нет, будет то же самое.

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.

When Chris Bailey died earlier this year I was inspired to dig into The Saints, thinking I didn't know them - but obviously I did, they wrote stone cold classics. Starting with I'm Stranded off the debut. Know Your Product is an absolute banger. The rest of the album is solid, well produced, is it post-punk? I mean some of this could have come out this year, people are still going for this sound, it feels oddly contemporary.

The horns on Know Your Product are amazing and give an old school soul vibe to a punk album. First punk album for the listening project, and it's one I'm not familiar with so I may be scoring it highly for recency bias - but it's quite good. Some slinky basslines on this record - Lost and Found is surprisingly fun and fluid.

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

Me gustó, fluye bien, como me pasa a veces con el paaank, pero como que no llega a afectarme más allá de que suene cool. Igual, "No, your product" es la que más me gustó, me puso de buenas y otras dos que destaco son "New Centre of the Universe" e "International Robots" porque está cagada con los sonidos robóticos. 7/10

A new band and new music for me. I hear some things that remind me of something coming some where in between the Ramones, the New York Dolls and maybe the Strokes? Nothing stood out as being great or bad. The album was fine.

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. Still, a solid album overall. It took a couple of songs to get used to the vocals, but they grew on me somewhat. Second half wasn't as strong, but I actually really dug the horns and harmonica mixed with classic punk.

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.

This is pretty fun. I’d heard that opening track before and had no idea it was called that or was by this band. Good tune though. There’s also a song that straight up sounds like The Strokes. Was this band the Australian Strokes of the 70s? Hmm.

Ugh this looks like it's gonna be some sort of early punk shit like the Stooges. Yep that's exactly what it is. Not good but it's not bad Apparently it's Aussie so I guess it gets an extra point for that. 3/5. Also fuckin lol @ the guy who got offended at the word retarded in one of the songs, and even called it "the R word" in the review haha.

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 also lacks a certain “it” factor for me that really pushes contemporaries like the Damned and the Sex Pistols to the top. Overall enjoyable, if flawed.

There doesn’t seem to be much that’s special or interesting about this (apart from the couple of tracks featuring horns - definitely under-utilised!) so I’m not sure why it’s on the list. That said, I didn’t dislike it in any way; it’s decent for what it is. So that means… 2.5? 3?

Once I got through the first couple songs, I immediately thought these guys sounded similar enough to the Clash to have influenced them. Turns out this band was quite influential, but nothing really stood out to me for a relisten moving forward.

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,

I owned an Ed Kueper album and I had heard of The Saints but never listened them. The first thing that hit me was Chris Bailey's distinct voice. With a voice like that you know you'll end up singing in a band. Musically, he and Kueper create a raw energetic sound somewhere in the space between punk, R&B and glam rock.

This was a long one. I have heard of the band before, but never had a chance to listen to them, so this was cool. The length of the album definitely hurt it, as towards the end most songs started to blend together and sound like one another. There were a few welcome breaks in style sometimes, but most songs didnt sound "unique". However, I still enjoyed this style of early "punk-rock" almost. Best enjoyed in smaller doses though.

Aggressively average punk rock band. It is entertaining, much more pleasant than Ramones or any other punk, or post-punk I have recently listened to, but truth to be told, it's still surprisingly uneventful. The riffs are quite catchy, bass line and drums are pretty good and consistent (too much consistent). The vocals were toned down, compared to the rest of the music. I remember harmonica in one song, unfortunately I don't remember which one, they all sounded too similar. But still, it's nice to find out about a band from Australia!
