The Pale Saints' 1991 Flesh Balloon was the first single the band released after its excellent and experimental debut album. The band scaled back its ambition and noise levels for the EP but dialed up the emotion. "Hunted" appeared on the fine In Ribbons album in 1992 and it is an epically melancholic track that is lush and lovely, depending more on shadings and feeling rather than sonic assault. "Porpoise" is a charming bit of filler that utilizes a skittering drum machine rhythm and spacy guitars to create a weird hybrid of shoegaze and lounge music. The bubbly sweet "Kinky Love" is a dreamy cover of a 1976 Nancy Sinatra tune featuring new bandmember Meriel Barham on vocals. The demo of "Hair Shoes" (the rerecorded version appears on In Ribbons) is similar to the finished version but is still interesting. Fans of the band, and anyone who is even slightly a fan of the shoegaze sound should be, ought to look high and low for this great EP. "Kinky Love" alone is worth whatever you end up paying. © Tim Sendra /TiVo

Heralding the addition of singer/guitarist Meriel Barham, who would become the Pale Saints' focal point following the exit of original frontman Ian Masters, Half-Life bridges the gap between the soundscapes of the band's debut LP, The Comforts of Madness, and its more conventional, pop-oriented follow-up, In Ribbons. Helmed by Wedding Present producer Chris Allison, this four-song set nevertheless manages to explore the altered states of the Pale Saints' earliest and strongest work, particularly on the vivid "Baby Maker" and the eerie "Two Sick Sisters." The closing "A Revelation" is anything but, however, its bland production rendering the group indistinguishable from countless other guitar pop outfits. © Jason Ankeny /TiVo
