The Pale Saints at their best . This album somehow manages to blend the most experimental and atonal side of indie with melodic purity. It's a brave album , it's a work of art , it's raw energy soothed by pure peace.

Ian Masters haunting vocals coupled with the hard, but sweet guitar, makes for a totally dreamy sound. This is rough-indie pop at it's best, and it never tires. 12 years on I still listen to this album and am in total awe of the genius behind it. This is by far the best of the Pale saints albums...A Masterpiece!

Not before have i felt compelled to write an Amazon review but the loving comments as regards this pure & timeless record touched me & I wanted to simply share my appreciation of it as a trancendental & gorgeous journey - full of masterful jangly northern indie pop & etheral majesty! Quite the meeting point between The Stone Roses & MBV that doesn't sound remotely contrived, just breathes natural chaos & love. Totally amazing 20 yrs on.......Thankyou fellas!

this is one of the best albums I have ever bought - every track is superb and timeless. The sound is soaring and uplifting and if you ever saw them live you were never disappointed. I managed to catch them only three times - Glastonbury 1990 (in between Lush and Galaxie 500) and twice at the Zap Club in Brighton with the Boo Radleys. things changed after Meriel joined.
Edsel Auctionner were't bad either.
