Format:Audio CD
OX4 is a fairly standard best of Ride- taking in all the singles, alongside a few choice album tracks (Vapour Trail, OX4, From Time to Time); this version comes with a pleasant four-track bonus from the Firing Blanks-collection found on 2001's Box-Set.
The first seven tracks show the arrival & development of Ride from 1989's Ride ep to 1991's Today Forever ep. Here the band were a slightly more poppy advance on The House of Love & MBV- opening track Chelsea Girl is filled with euphoria and reasonably could be described as MBV do Buffalo Springfield. The feedback wasn't far away & was evident on early classic Drive Blind- a blend of MaryChain/MBV feedback, a monster Black Sabbath riff, lyrics redolent of Kraftwerk's Autobahn, the controlled maelstrom of Joy Division, & even a hint of StatusQuo's psychedelic classic Pictures of Matchstick Men!
Unbelievable that two-thirds of the band were still in their teens!- in the UK, Ride had a definite buzz- which was advanced on with the Play ep, from which Like a Daydream stems. Here Ride aligned themselves with Eight Miles High-era Husker Du & Younger Than Yesterday-Byrds: perfect tight feedback drenched pop! Their final ep release of 1990 was Fall, which preceded debut LP Nowhere, & from which we have two tracks, jangly-lead track Taste & the epic-sonicdowner that was Dreams Burn Down (which also turned up on the debut). DBD offers up a LedZep'Levee Breaks'-style drumbeat and instead of a chorus, descended into further Sonic Youth-inflected guitar assaults. But for anyone who doubts the quality of the song- check out the new version released by Mark Gardener&Goldrush on this months'Falling Out Into the Night'ep on Truck Records!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Collection from one of the best bands ever. February 20, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is a wonderful collection of some of Ride's very best tracks. Though they aren't really a band that can be summarized in a singles collection, this is an enjoyable collection of highlights that would serve as a good introduction to the band. Of course, there are many more great tracks that aren't here. The remastering sounds great, though no Ride fan should be without the remastered album re-issues released in 2001 with extra ep tracks on each. Still for fans you haven't purchased the box set, this collection offers a cool booklet and a bonus cd with four of the tracks from the box set's "Firing Blanks" cd. "Something's Burning" and "Tongue Tied" are both great unreleased tracks, and the different take of "In A Different Place" really gives another perspective on the song. "She's So Fine" is interesting from a song history perspective, but in my opinion the lyrics and music are much improved on the later version of this song found on Tarantula. As for the selections on OX4, I would have chosen different songs from Carnival Of Light, including "Only Now" instead of "How Does It Feel To Feel", but I'm sure everyone would have their own ideal track listing.
