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.

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".

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.

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.

Shoegazer is the music of dreamers. Defeaningly loud guitars and drenched reverberation create an immense wall of dense sound, a technique patented by famed producer Phil Specter in the 1960s. Decades later, we saw the re-emergence of the "Wall of Sound," wit the British shoegaze movement.

On Ride's Nowhere however, this is taken to a sensational extreme--to the point where it could be considered a "Wave of Sound" splashing hopelessly around listeners. The reverb-laden, fuzzed-out guitars create a kaleidescope effect--sounds continuously reflecting off one another in a seemless pattern.

Nowhere as a whole is a metaphor for an erratic ocean. Guitars move in and out like thunderous tsunamis while at the same time remaining calm as a gentle wave gliding across the cold shore. The oceanic nature of Nowhere, stirs up images of two angels ballroom dancing to the serene sounds of the ocean waves clashing against hte sandy surface.

While bands like My Bloody Valentine focused almost exclusively won disorienting guitar feedback to create huge awll of sound effects Ride focused more using these fuzzed-out sounds to further emphasize the dynamics of each song. The reverberation is layered on top of layers with even more layers added to those layers. Their combination of pop-songwriting with atmospheric psychadelica made them standout among the oceans of other shoegaze bands as well as becoming forerunners in the genre of dream-pop.

Amonsgt the lush jangly teremelo created by a 12-string Rickenbacker, vocalists Andy Bell and Mark Gardner sing "Why should it feel like a crime? / If I want to be with you all the time / Why is it measured in hours / You should make your own time / You're welcome in mine," on the J.D.
