The Best Band To Disappear From The Planet...
Institution Green | Fenton, MO USA | 05/08/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Pale Divine was awesome. They ruled the St. Louis music scene for several years in the late '80s/early 90's. Everybody knew they were going to be huge. We KNEW it. How could they miss? Record execs would come out to see their shows every weekend. They had excellent songs, a great image, loads of talent, a singer with incredible stage presence etc etc....and then: they released the aptly named "Straight to Goodbye" and called it a day. I recall the usual reasons: creative differences, the record company's failure to market the band etc..and they all went their separate ways. (The guitarist, Rich Fortus, is currently playing for Guns N Roses..) Our loss...Every song on this disc is a keeper, and should have propelled them to international fame. Who knows? After the members sow their oats they may decide to hook up again. It's not too late.So, pick up their debut/swan song while you can. There aren't many copies floating around out there."
An outstanding CD!!!

"I've owned this CD for many years. I remember purchasing it on the day it was released. ...for the life of me I don't know why they didn't stick together. I think they could have made it big. I think it was something about Michael (lead singer) wanting to be more acoustic than the rest of the guys. Anyway, back to the CD. It's great! I still listen to it frequently and it sounds just as fresh as it did when I heard these songs for the first time. They kind of have a "Psychedelic Furs" sound. In fact, they toured with them. I keep hoping they will get back together and pick up where they left off, although it's probably best left as is - with great memories."
Yes, awesome album, awesome band, shame they didn't make it

"As others pointed out, this is the best St. Louis band to never make it. I was a regular at their shows as a teenager, and lost count after 25. Stage presence is an understatement. The lead singer could hold a crowd in his control, and he had "the look". Richard Fortus is a great guitarist who went on to the band Love Spit Love. Interestingly enough, I now work at the corporate headquarters of one of the largest St. Louis companies, and the former Pale Divine drummer works there as well. He plays at some corporate functions with a few other amateur musicians.

Pale Divine really was the band that I will always remember from my teenage years. When camping, my friends and I still to this day bring guitars and sit around the campfire singing Pale Divine songs."
