  1. 10.0 |   DIY

    Their most astonishing and liberating move yet

  2. 10.0 |   Kerrang!

    Admirably aiming high when so many seem content to play it safe and follow the footsteps of their peers, this a wonderful rollercoaster of a record that puts Creeper way out on their own

  3. 10.0 |   Upset

    It’s bloody brilliant and, quite frankly, should be in many, many AOTY lists when this unusual year finally ends

  4. 9.0 |   Gigwise

    A driven epic that eclipses this band's debut

  5. 9.0 |   music OMH

    In a world where the genre of rock has seemed fairly uninspired as of late, Creeper have more than a wealth of ideas – and it is clear from this album’s production that the band have worked on streamlining their sound

  6. 9.0 |   All Music

    Like its predecessor, Sex, Death, & the Infinite Void treats naval-gazing like a spectator sport, with each death-obsessed narrative resolving into a gang-vocal crescendo ("God can't save us, so let's live like sinners") of stale cigarette smoke and beer-can-crushing outsider solidarity

  7. 8.9 |   Gig Soup

    Three years since the airing of ‘Eternity, In Your Arms’, their follow up record leaves the harsher side of rock/punk in the dust, in favour of this shining beacon of rock symphony

  8. 8.0 |   Beats Per Minute

    For all its indulgence and fluid musical expression, Sex, Death & the Infinite Void doesn’t even crack 40 minutes in length. Creeper accomplish a lot in that time, and their new record is a suitably triumphant return – the odds were stacked against them and their story was almost cut short, but they have prevailed with an album that’s their most expressive statement yet

  9. 8.0 |   NME

    They've been through a lot of shit, and here the Southhampton band charge into the darkness, resulting in an ambitious and nuanced album

  10. 8.0 |   Q

    Creeper may lack originality, but they make up for it with ambition and sheer cheek. Print edition only

  11. 7.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Creeper take a deeper dive into their punk-laden theatrics, and are all the better for it
