This review is from: In Ribbons (Audio CD)
when this album was released in the mid nineties - the pale saints were already, commercially speaking a spent force. seen as 'shoegazing' bandwagon jumpers - the press had almost washed their hands of them. however for those who'd enjoyed the previous album and couldn't wait for a new my bloody valentine album (still bloody waiting!) - a treat was in store. in fact, of all the albums credited to the shoegazing scene this is one that still stands up as a bloody good record. From the pure visceral pop of the opening track through to the swooning, languid beauty of the last,this is an album that i can still play to this day - not as some nostalgia trip, but because this is an album that yeilds something new with each listen. which, lets face it is more than can be said for slowdive or chapterhouse...

This album came out in March or April 1992. Not the mid 1990s. The Pale Saints released their first single in 1989 so arrived early in the shoegazing game.

I remember it getting 9/10 in the NME.
