I have never heard of the band Ride. They released their album Nowhere in 1990 to critical acclaim. It was an important release in shoegazing genre. I do like this genre so I have some hope to like the album.
The best songs are “In a Different Place“, “Polar Bear”, “Dreams Burn Down“, and probably my favourite one “Vapour Trail“. I will have to listen to them again.
This was another one of those hard albums to rate. I liked it in full, but I found it more difficult to dissect the songs individually. I think most of the songs were not the type that hook you on one or two listens. I think this an album that grows on the listeners. 10/10.
