AllMusic Review by

Many of the alternative rock bands that emerged in the early to late 1990s ran on either pure adrenaline or pure angst, but on Kissing Judas' promising Eternity, melody and harmony play as important and crucial a role as hard-rocking aggression. Melody isn't simply an afterthought on haunting selections like "Postcard," "Guenevere" and the title song; it's primary to this East Coast unit, whose attractive sounds draws on '90s alternative rock as well as the classic psychedelic rock, blues-rock and hard rock of the 1960s and early '70s. The humorous "Tokyo Cowboy" incorporates country, while "Not Fair to Me" has a somewhat Living Colour-ish appeal. Eternity wasn't a huge commercial hit, but it proved that Judas was a band that merited close attention.
