Avis sur l’album

When thinking of the finest dream pop records from the early '90s, The Comforts of Madness tends to get lost in the shuffle. 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. Comforts is really as much of a "quirk-out" as it is a "bliss-out," experimental in many ways and apparently so from the beginning of "Way the World Is." The noisy rattling eventually gives way to wobbly bass and tunefully violent Wedding Present-like strumming, whipping up a tempestuous haze of frenzied pop. Throughout the record, the trio throws in countless tempo curveballs (with no sense of pomposity) and effectively balances the blasting chuggers with levitational banks of piled-on guitarscapes. The somewhat thin production lent by John Fryer and Gil Norton (on separate sessions) actually serves Comforts well, though it may take a few listens to settle in. The somewhat trebly, un-anchored production is properly suited for Ian Masters' boyish vocals, which sound like they're just on the brink of pubescence. His vocals are just as important to this record as Graeme Naysmith's guitars, not vanishing into the gobs of guitars like your typical shoegaze. "Sight of You" (retooled from their debut EP) is the centerpeice, a lovelorn gem that sounds vaguely like the lost track to Psychocandy. In whole, this debut remains a brilliant example of insular, adventurous, and charmingly flawed noise pop.

Avis des utilisateurs


disque incontournable réalisé par le cerveu génial et sombre de Ian Masters. Le premier (et dernier ? non ! j'oublie Loveless de My Bloody Valentine) grand disque des années 90. Cet album est un concentré de ce qu'il y a eu de plus beau en Angleterre dans les années 80 (new wave, cold wave, afterpunk etc...). Un disque qui a frappé de très nombreux amoureux du rock anglais. Si vous aimez ce disque, jetez une oreille sur Spoonfed Hybrid (autre groupe avec Ian Masters), une autre disque furieusement beau... (malheureusement pas encore disponible sur i tunes).

Un magnifique album

groupe bien trop méconnu et qui aurait mérité bien mieux


Formé(s) : 1987 à Leeds, England

Genre : Alternative

Années d’activité : '80s, '90s

Ethereal pop band the Pale Saints formed in Leeds, England, in 1987. Ian Masters (bass/vocals), Chris Cooper (drums), and Graeme Naysmith (guitar) were signed by Ivo Watts-Russell to his 4AD label on the strength of their first London appearance. The three-song Barging into the Presence of God was released two years later, receiving praise for its lead track, the melancholy "Sight of You" (which was later covered by Oxford's Ride for a radio session). In 1990, the debut LP The Comforts of Madness...
