Eternally Yours is the second album by Australian punk rock band The Saints, released in 1978. Produced by band members Chris Bailey and Ed Kuepper, the album saw the band pursue a bigger, more R&B-driven sound, augmented by a horn section. The album also saw the introduction of bass guitarist Algy Ward, who replaced the band's previous bass player, Kym Bradshaw in mid-1977.Wikipedia
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.

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.
Aussie Punk from down under... What amazes me is that they started as Kid Galahad and the Eternals (1973–1974)... therefore BEFORE the Ramones! WTF?
Australsk punk-rock, ikke så spændende
Who have i never heard these before. Proper punk! Would love to see them live . Bit of a Jam vide in there as well.
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.
Descubrimiento. Punk rock primigenio, a la altura de Ramones. Tienen algún tema que parece actual. Fresco y divertido. Muy bueno.
all killa, no filla!
Rating: 10/10 Best songs: ALL
super punk and raw as hell, especially that last song. the energy of this album is killer and i knew by the album name and band that itd be pretty good but it exceeded expectations. insanely goooooood
Loved this record! It's an energetic time travel to the late 70’s. Some of these song made my playlists
Excellent punk album, with a little bit of a jazzy feel on a couple of songs. A lot of fun
jäkla gött album alltså. "No, your product" är ett asnajs spår. rocknroll så det står härliga till
My expectations were low, but this album is stunning. Sounds as if it could have been recorded in 2001, alongside The Strokes et al.
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
Australia ska punk, sign me up
Yeah yeah yeah, the true spirit of Punkrock! Raw, unpleasant and honest to the bone! Lots of fun to meet The Saints here.
I opened this album the other day and said my good lord Jesus why did they give us another unknown shitty punk album. And then I pressed play. And they hit me with TRUMPETS?! I’m a sucker for trumpets first off. And then I kept listening and realized, wait a second, now I remember why I like punk. Because real punk is actually fucking good. And for the first time they gave us a real punk album, with great guitar riffs and drum beats that go insanely hard. Plus, it went beyond the classic 4 instrument setup, which was magical. This album made me want to run through a wall in the best way, a few of these songs will be put on the playlist, and I actually went back to an album for the first time. This is exactly why I joined this group - I wanted to find albums that I had never heard that speak to me on a deeper level, and this one brought out my inner emo kid. My first 5 star review, and well deserved at that.
An absurd proudness washes over me knowing that this was coming out of my river city homeland at such a pivotal moment in heavy guitar rock/punk history. Same when I think about what the Cosmic Psychos were doing. What an outrageously excellent album. No, Your Product sounds exactly like The Strokes could've released it on Room on Fire. I can see how the horns would not have been well received at the time but they hold up beautifully in the world of today's post punk
Holy moly How have I never heard of these guys before A fantastic album from start to finish with a brilliant horn section as well Kind of sounds like what a punk album by the Rolling Stones might sound like
One of the only albums better than this is the Saints debut. Raw, primal stuff with added soul
"Memories Are Made of This" and "Orstralia" were the two that really stood out to me. This whole album was great. The songs didn't drag on forever, the singer actually sang, and it wasn't the same chord over and over throughout all of the songs.
This one surprised me, I love it!
3.75/5. Enjoyable. I am always cautious of punk albums but this one was good. The songs were nice to listen to.
Good old punk
Love the different choices of instrumentation, love the horns (and the fact that it doesn't sound like ska). Think it really sets it apart from the crowd. Youthful, snotty, fun, punk. Favorite tracks: "No, Your Product", "(I'm) Misunderstood"
nifty punk album 4.5 stars?
I was surprised.... Pretty good old punk that I've never hear of
Sounds about three decades too late. Good mix of 70s and 90s punk In 2009. Lost and Found, Know your product as strong openers
Punk with brass from 1978
British punk rockers are my jam. Love the energy, the accents, the wit.
3.5| Punk muy agradable esa incorporación de metales puede que sea algo que influenció a muchas bandas después de ellos a experimentar No lo s conocía pero si me voy a dar a la tarea de escuchar mas de ellos
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.
So glad this came up. They are such an influence on so many artists (Nick Cave, U2) and I really didn't know anything about them. And I always love adding another Aussie band to my arsenal.
Punk-rock en los inicios del movimiento.
It's like the Ramones... but less shit... and with horns. It's punk so it all kind of runs into each other, but I actually think it's a lot of fun! Also 'International Robots' is Aunty Donna as fuck
A really good and melodic 1970s punk album. Further elevated by horns and harmonica making this pretty great.
More punk records should be this lush
Go on, Southampton. I thoroughly enjoyed this.
La mitología más pedestre dice que el punk se inventó en Inglaterra. En realidad fue en Estados Unidos. En realidad fue en Perú. O en realidad fue en Australia con The Saints. En fin, son buenas canciones, algunas grandes, de los discos favoritos del Kurt Cobain.
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.
Punk limpio y bien hechecito, sin pretensiones pero sin mucha propuesta tampoco. Está ok. Top track: River Deep Mountain High
Initially skeptical but started jamming to the album by the end. Good background noise
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.
Very British Punk crossed with some early Bob Dylan vibes. I liked the sound, but some of the lyrics got lost on my ears, and I had to look them up.
Music ows SOOOO much to this band!
I've never heard of this band before but I really digging what I've heard so far. Have not had a chance to listen to the album fully today but will definitely give it a full listen when I can. This is definitely more accessible punk.
Never heard of this album or band, but I'm impressed. A solid mix of classic punk with some forward thinking songwriting choices like the use of horns and acoustic guitars. Really enjoyed this!
Great stuff from The Saints. Almost as good as Stranded. I've only discovered this great band in the Las few months I'm so glad I did. Really great stuff
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.
This was pretty great! A punk record kicking off with horns. Man, I got into every little bit of this. good stuff!
Really good fun - I loved the horns over the punk rock and the cool swagger. Some of the tracks sounded like they might have influenced The Strokes. One to listen to again.
Solid punk album, vocals were grating st times but this had jams for sure 7/10
Primera vez que conozco de este grupo. Se suponía que los 1001 discos son los más importantes de la historia? No digo que sea un mal disco, pero bue
Decent… and a cut above your common-or-garden punk stuff… had an edge!
I liked it! I'm honestly shocked by all the punk rock on this list but this was a little bit of a change from the norm. It might have just been the Australian accents that changed it for me but I think it was more than that.
Agréablement suprirs, très solide album. Clairement un album phare du mouvement punk, mais à mon avis meilleur que Ramones ou Sex Pistols.
8/10 I like the way punk rock sounds from the 70s It had a surprisingly warm sound, it felt like fun background music you could listen to going about your day it was a cool album, i liked it
Enjoyed this. Got me interested in hearing their first album, which I preferred.
Never heard of the Saints before but I really liked this. An album that is 40 years old but feels like it could have been made yesterday. Enjoyable all around.
Happy to see an Australian band on the list. If you like this, try some other Australian bands of the era: Laughing Clowns, Died Pretty, Radio Birdman, The Triffids
Straight up punk!
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.
Damn Tge Saints are GOOD. Can't believe I missed them back in the day. I would say they are the most faithful to The Stooges of any band I've heard from that era. 4 🌟
Прослушивание 1 1 Альбому требуется срочный ремастер. Это выглядит интересно, очень. 2 Вау! Мне это нравится. Лайк 3 Вот начало мне напомнило треки Егора Летова... эх... помню как мы отбитые с друзьями ходили по улице и пели песню 《про дурачка》. 4 За начало уже лайк. Мне это нравится. 5 Ладно. Теперь это похоже на 《Агата Кристи》хахаха) 6 Трек только начался, но он уже добавлен. Классный рок-н-рол. 7 Классный трек. СНОВА добавляю. 8 Интересный трек. 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. Альбом очень самобытный и харизматичный, но чего-то мне не хватило. 4 из 5.
Didn’t do much for me 1st time around. Had to listen to it twice. Sounded like the strokes but more fun. Good energy.
Wow really great, never heard of these guys. Punk albums that still sound decent are few and far between but this is like London Calling in that it has other stuff going on. The horns and acoustic bits worked really well
Really cool, well executed punk album. I enjoyed the experimentation and drawing elements of other styles in the first half, but the second half seemed to devolve into more straightforward Ramones-style punk. Would have liked to hear a bit more of that diversity carried through to the end. Overall still very enjoyable, I am surprised I have not heard this before, will definitely be coming back. Highlights: Know your Product, Memories Are Made of This, Run Down
Eternalises a thorny, lusty sound that I hadn’t heard much of before. Pretty good
Very excellent punk!
what a pleasant surprise, love a punk album from this era that totally rocks that i have barely ever heard of
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.
The first two tracks hit you hard and fast and overall this is a very solid album. I had never listened to the Saints before and was pleasantly surprised by their sound and I'm instantly a fan. Since this is their second album, I'm curious about their debut and the rest of their discography, as well.
Wow! Best punk band I had never heard of before. Well, I had heard of them, but wasn't familiar with their music. Sort of seems like an Australian version of Iggy Pop. 4 stars.
Influences and influential. And This Perfect Day. What more do you need?
Fantastic garage rock record - not heard of The Saints before but I will check out their discog now!
Sramota da ovo nisan ranije sluša. Super je
Gostei muito, bem garagem
SOOO HYPE GOOD VIBES!
I am not so familiar with the Saints but as expected this album was great. Favourite song no your product. Maybe it just falls short of being 5 star.
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.
Ooohh I love it. Sounds like a Caswell album. Here for some punk rock 🤘🖤
Nice band of punk-rock. I liket it. The first song is very good.
A little gem. Raw punk-rock with just enough pop to make it easy and a bit more complex. Added to favorites.
Love this album. Not every track, but Know Your Product / This Perfect Day justify its existence alone. A great step forward from their first album, maintaining the punk energy but with a bit more variation in tempo.
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.
Leuk punkalbum, de koperblazers zijn een meerwaarde!
This was a bit of a hidden gem - I'd never heard of them. Did they make it out of Australia?
Enjoyable 70s punk rock
classic muscular punk rock and roll
Sve u svemu dost dobar punk rock album, ali zbog: Know Your Product, Memories Are Made of This, Run Down, Ostralia, New Centre of the Universe je sigurna četvorka.
Good fun. Sounds a bit like the sex pistols
