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.
The Comforts of Madness is the debut studio album from Pale Saints, released by 4AD on 12 February 1990. The album set Ian Masters' dreamy, choirboy-like vocals against dark and slightly experimental noise pop. "Fell From the Sun" is a cover of a song originally by Opal. The Comforts of Madness was 4AD's first release of the 1990s, and was preceded by the EP Barging Into the Presence of God in September 1989 (which features a different recording of "Sight of You") and succeeded by the EP Half-Life in October 1990.

The Comforts of Madness, the band's debut studio album, was released in 1990. An ambitious sound that remains unique right to this day, Ian Masters and the crew successfully merged dream pop with rather gentle shoegaze. The album includes a cover of Opal's, "Fell From the Sun," and was produced by John Fryer and Gil Norton. Remastered for vinyl for the first time in over two decades, this record is pressed on high quality, European vinyl. Indeed, The Comforts of Madness, much less any Pale Saints recording, captures the very essence of nearly all that was indie in Britain in the late eighties/early nineties: washing guitar sounds, mellow rhythms, whispery vocals, and somewhat sentimental lyrics. Although this may sound sappy, it is not; trust me. This album is intense and is well suited for contemplative moments and self-indulgent behavior induced by whatever turns you on.
