Editorial Reviews

Oxfordshire quartet Ride quickly rose to prominence in 1989, driven by the chart success of its first three EPs, the intensity of its live shows, and a hypnotic and moody sound that presaged alt-rock's ascendance. In October 1990, the band released its first full album Nowhere, a tour de force of intertwining guitars, intimate but otherworldly vocals, and open-ended lyrics. Two decades later, the album still resonates and remains one of the era's high-water marks. Never originally released on vinyl in the U.S. Matches the original UK album with original embossed LP jacket. Pressed on 180-gram vinyl. This year is the 20th anniversary of the album's release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Part of the Shoe-Gaze Holy Trinity September 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
One of the best of the genre. They achieve a great balance of power and beauty. This is still a collection of great melodic tunes, and like MBV it's all hypnotic.

The guitars roar and scream. The drumming is aggressive like bonham. Laurence (Loz) is a very underrated drummer. And over this whirlwind are vocals and harmonies that are often beautiful. The overall alchemy of zeppelin, floyd, stone roses, MBV (same producer), Jesus & Mary Chain, Smiths, the La's...it's just hypnotic.

1. Seagull - starts out- little hi-hat, feedback, shuffly bass, like they are just settling in to start to play- then watch out! Amazing drumming, icy, crashing, psychadelic guitars.
2. Kaliedescope - Syd Barrett with tribal drums and guitars that sound like shattering glass.
3. In a Different Place - a little slower. Nice song. Believe me, you need a come down here from the preceding intensity.
4. Polar Bear - Great use of the Johnny Marr "How soon is now" volume pedal: then artfully taken up a notch. Beautiful acoustic guitar stomp toward the end. Beautiful and full of building tension.
5. Dreams Burn Down - Downright violent! Opens w/ "Levee Breaks" drumming. Compressed cymbals. Chiming guitars...up to the Icy-screechy-shattering Glass howling guitar sound explosion.
6. Decay - Grinding guitars, galloping bass, great drum breaks.
7. Paralysed - another beautiful song.
8. Vapour Trails - Mad-chester beat, bouncy chiming guitars with enjoyable cello. ends nicely on just the cello.
9. Taste - Upbeat, poppy. Extremely enjoyable. Beautiful vocal arrangement, with some forlorn bittersweet lyrics.
10. Here and Now - La's-like guitar, great beat. A little harmonica blending in well. Catchy chorus.
11.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably Ride's best album June 4, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is probably Ride's best album. I picked up this album when I learned that this guy named Andy Bell had joined Oasis on bass, was an accomplished songwriter (which means that Oasis now has two songwriters) and had played in a band called Ride. So I went to the local music store and bought "Nowhere". Immediatly I was grabed by the disk.
Ride's sound is what they call shoegazing but compared to the shoegazing kings, My Bloody Valentine, Ride's music is more melodic, direct and not as disorienting. There also does not seem to be much of an etheral sound in Ride's music that came to be embraced by many shoegazer bands. Instead Ride added their own flourish of psychedelia to their music. This makes Ride's music is a bit more accesiable than the Valtine's sound. "Nowhere" is also probably very melodic due to the fact that Andy Bell used a 12 string Rickenbacker on this album which gives the album sound a bit of a jangly edge along with plenty of wah-wah effects and distortion. Anybody with a passing interest in shoegazing I definitly would recommend picking up this album. Highlights include "Seagull", "Paralysed", "Dreams Burn Down" , "Vapor Trail" and "Nowhere".

5.0 out of 5 stars Ride - Can't get enough October 24, 2004
By 90sBrit
Format:Audio CD
I was lucky enough to see Ride live in Atlanta at the Cotton Club, circa 93'. They were promoting Going Blank Again, and quite frankly, if you were lucky enough to see the glory that was briefly Ride you are a comrade in music history. I love the Brit scene, especially back in the days of the early 90's, and I'll say this, if you love the roses, you'll love this album. Ride, the Charlatans, and the Stone Roses, bring back nothing but good memories for me, and this album (Nowhere) is always better than most. Get it. That's it. Just get it... the guitars alone are worth the 10 bucks, and you'll wonder what you ever did without it on a rainy night. I just can't send this one high enough on the all time must have's list.

5.0 out of 5 stars this record transcends rock February 7, 2002
Format:Audio CD
With this record Ride reached their creative peak. My high-school friends were so in love with this album that they grew bitterly disappointed with the band's later, cheesier efforts. On "Nowhere", the band creates a unified aesthetic, pulling the best elements of psychedelia, heavy rock and British pop into something that's none of those things, something beautiful. The guitar sound is huge, churning, atmospheric bliss, lots of effects and noise used to create an organic wall of sound. The rhythm section plays big, simple, clean grooves. But the vocals are the master stroke: elementary, pretty melodies and harmonies, sung rather blandly. The singing fades back into the mix, another instrument with lyrics to sketch out a story. Perfect for car trips, rainy days, or waking up late.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another sonic landscape straight out of Dreamland October 28, 2004
Format:Audio CD
At first listen, this album seemed simply good to average in my mind. Then, I found myself listening to this disc unfailingly for three straight days as the rush of spacey guitars and foggy vocals slowly burned their way into my psyche. While the album begins with the fairly straight-ahead "Seagull," the rest of the tunes shimmy into a cascade of entrancing sound that completely (if not subliminally) sneak into the listener's consciousness.

The dream-like elements are all in place: dense, rapturous, guitars, strategically placed and often delicate drums, tight rhythmic pulses, and distant, angelic vocals. Hypnotic in every sense, tracks such as "In a Different Place," and "Vapour Trail" wash over you like a cool blue wave. Do yourself a favor and take this ride.

Ride was an amazing band with a relatively short life. Their first album, Nowhere, came out in 1990. By 1996, their fourth album released along with their implosion. Read more

This is a highly recommendable album. Some of the songs are better than others but they're all at least listenable. Nowhere features several of Ride's best tracks ever.
