CREEPS, THE: Old Crimes: LP

It’s Alive has collected the Creeps’ three EPs, one split, and single (2009-2013) onto one easy to manage long player. Rather difficult for me to review, as words will fall insufficient to my feelings on Skottie’s voice. Since blindly ordering Crusades first LP, his pipes provide a dark melody that really does something for me. I jumped on the Creeps as soon as I realized they were a more Skottie-centric goth pop outlet for his vocal stylings (versus the more serious leanings of Crusades). Every Creeps release makes me feel like the interior sleeve photo of this one: a sea of raised fists and undoubtedly open mouths. Essential. –Matt Seward (It’s Alive, itsaliverecords.com)
