AllMusic Review by

In their spirited third release, Toronto, Ontario’s the Creepshow fine-tune their psychobilly sound and focus on the key theme of revenge. Frontwoman/guitarist Sarah “Sin” Blackwood and organist the Reverend McGinty ping-pong vocals back and forth, spouting out vengeful venom like “All the victims left behind will turn to rust,” “I’m bitter to the bone,” and “No one’s here to get your back/You’re such a sorry little rat” along with the thrashing pitter-pat beats of drummer Matt “Pomade" Gee and double bass of Sean “Sickboy” McNab. The majority of They All Fall Down plays out in the usual tight, effervescent gutter-punk aggression that defines the band, while “Sleep Tight” takes an unusual turn as a ‘60s pop song in the style of “Earth Angel” about a girlfriend haunting her former lover/murderer from her grave.
