FWIW, I agree. I think most of the S&tB/Creatures stuff has held up pretty well.
The rule for Goth is: early, proto-Goth stuff holds up well (Joy Division, Bauhaus...), super-poppy Goth stuff holds up well (S&tB, The Cure), and the rest sounds ridiculous around ten minutes after it gets released. I base this on the experiences of my late high school/freshman-year-of-college days, which were spent entirely in black eyeliner. I lived so far into the white-bread suburbs that it actually still shocked people, so that phase lasted a bit longer than it really should have....
