Product Description:

Personnel: Chris Bailey (vocals); Ed Kuepper (guitar); Ivor Hay (drums).
Audio Remasterers: Chris Bailey; Ed Kuepper.
The raw energy and unabashed exuberance the Saints displayed on their 1977 debut (I'M) STRANDED was still fully present on the follow-up ETERNALLY YOURS. However, the band's songwriting had matured enormously by the release of that album in 1978. In fact, rare is the combination of angsty dissatisfaction, lean-and-mean punk rock riffage, and songwriting skill that the quartet displays here. The Saints rail against mindless consumerism and the general vapid nature of mainstream society ("Know Your Product," "International Robot," "Run Down"), but never in the service of shallow punk posturing. Of course, when the topic turns to matters of the heart ("A Minor Aversion," "Untitled") the Saints are equally genuine. Tough yet smart, with an acoustic number here and boisterous horn part there, ETERNALLY YOURS is a quiet triumph.
