Complete your Pale Saints collection. There are shoegaze bands who sold more records, who got more press in NME & Melody Maker, and who are more frequently cited as influences on contemporary bands, but let's not sell the Pale Saints short. You would be hard pressed to find a more cohesive shoegaze album from start to finish. A treasure of the 4AD catalog!

Frequently and unfortunately, the Pale Saints were disregarded as just another part of the 4AD sound, lacking distinction and relying on the clichés of the time. Though they might have (arguably) fallen into those traps later in their brief career, their debut really does stick out from the remainder of the 4AD roster as well as the remainder of the then-current scene. The touchstones - Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine, Galaxie 500 - are somewhat apparent, but their debut is certifiably unique. Noise and melody duke it out, but in an arrestingly off-kilter fashion.
