4.5 superbMRectangle | November 23rd 11

Beautiful in its ugliness. There is a menacing, dissonant, raw sound that fills every song on "Comfort". It is Failure's least accessible album, their loudest, and possibly their best, yet it gets overlooked. I always found it unusual the way critical reviews of Failure pretty much only talk about one album... yes you know the one. Failure's first three albums are a unit, and when I'm in the mood I tend to binge listen all three.

I think "Comfort" is best listened to once you've explored Failure's later work. Once you're used to the band and the kinds of musical signatures they employ, you'll really be able to appreciate what they did here. But it also depends where you're coming from. If you're a big Steve Albini fan, this is the best place to start.

3.0 goodOliverCampbell | March 20th 09

The producing could be better, but as an album it's pretty badass material. Very dark and grungy, less poppy than the latter two albums.

3.0 goodLastRites442 | March 8th 23

Noisy & abrasive grunge with some parts & songs bordering on alt-metal, solid debut but their follow ups are better.

Bump

5.0 classicNathaniel Slaughter | May 19th 22

Extremely underrated grunge/alt rock classic, very dark and somber-ish sound.
