Format: Audio CD
Die unruhige Woge mitten im Meer veranschaulicht zwar den Namen des ersten Albums dieser Band schon ganz gut, bei seiner Musik ist es da nicht ganz so. Auch Ride luden wie viele ihrer Shoegaze-Artgenossen in den frühen 90ern zum Träumen ein, klangen aber insgesamt eher nüchtern und klar. Wo My Bloody Valentine`s Gitarrenfeedbacks den Zuhörer kuschelig in Watte einpackten, um ihn dann langsam in den Schlaf zu wiegen, hoben sich Ride den Lärm lieber auf, um ihn fast überfallartig als Waffe zu zücken. Nachzuhören auf „Nowhere“, diesem ersten wundervollen Album der Engländer. In erster Linie sahen sich Ride aber eher in der Tradition von britischen Pop. Laurence Colbert gibt am Schlagzeugspiel eine klare Line vor, die kleinen Haken hier und dort gefallen aber immer. Das Aushängeschild von „Nowhere“ sind aber seine unwiderstehlichen Melodien von Mike Gardener und dem Sänger und späteren Oasis-Bassisten Andy Bell, die einen wie Amor`s Pfeile direkt in die Brust treffen und einen vor lauter Glücksmomenten wie betrunken durch die Gegend wanken lassen. Das artigste aber harmloseste Kompliment, was man „Nowhere“ machen kann, ist seine Stimmigkeit. Das Bedeutendere wären acht Songperlen in der Originalausgabe von „Nowhere“, zu denen noch drei weitere in der verlängerten Version hinzukommen.

Finally getting the respect they deserve with Nowhere deluxe. How about a video comp DVD with Twisterella (which can't be found on You Tube anymore)? Just the same, get this and enjoy!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Vapour Trail Mix 26. Juni 2014
Von Gerret Wullschleger - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
I love the song Vapour Trail but the orchestra ending (instead of guitars) the song doesn't sound right. It's like listening to a Jesus and Mary Chain song that ends with an orchestra.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great remaster for this shoegazing classic 27. November 2011
Von John L Murphy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A buzz surrounded the twentieth anniversary of Loveless by My Bloody Valentine and Nevermind by Nirvana this year. Certainly both albums represent wonderful achievements; another from this era earns its own celebration. Ride, four young men just out of school and all of about twenty, released its own impressive debut, after three strong four-song e.p.'s earlier in 1990. That fall, a few Americans like me who had paid import prices for whatever appeared on Alan McGee's Creation label found ourselves paying again, if for a Sire record, for the eight songs on the British full-length Nowhere were appended by four from the latest of those e.p.'s, Fall.

Alan Moulder's mix reveals, in these Rhino remasters, a grittier coating over the hazy smear. The original album felt ethereal and woozy. As Jim De Rogatis' liner notes record, the "gigantic oceanic swell" of its cover art match Moulder's "disorienting" blend of aggression and delicacy. While shelved with shoegazers My Bloody Valentine and Slowdive upon its release, Nowhere hearkens back to this Oxford band's influences: the eclecticism of psychedelic Beatles, the guitar constructions of The Smiths, the lazy drift of Rain Parade and L.A.'s Paisley Underground, and the measured beat of The Velvet Underground.

The backwards loops opening this album, on "Seagull," signal the band's determination to re-create their favorite sounds. What the quartet adds is an aggression that takes from British post-punk what The Smiths and the Paisley Underground pioneered: a meatier guitar attack overlaying a more expansive, subtly folksier vocals. Andy Bell's Rickenbacker 12-string takes charge, electrified, phased, and distorted. Mark Gardener supports on guitar, with a wistful, understated voice that wafts over the sonic waves: the swaying drums of Laurence "Loz" Colbert and Steve Queralt's steady bass. De Rogatis' comparisons of this rhythm section to that of The Who are, typically for this astute critic of Sixties rock, well-chosen.

"Kaleidoscope" brings, as its title promises, a swirling style, lighter as Gardener's lyrics float upon a propulsive, yet jittery melody recalling a gentler ballad, pressed into service of a more demanding, dreamily echoed direction. "In A Different Place" resembles The Smiths, a steadier pause after so much whirling action. "Polar Bear" roams into a more desolate landscape, closer to Echo and the Bunnymen, but replacing Ian McCulloch's stolid moans with Gardener's softer regret. Colbert's control of the snares and toms emerges in the production well to anchor this more simply composed tune.

Nearing the halfway point of the original album, "Dreams Burn Down" slows the pace. Colbert adapts a slightly funkier tap, backed by Queralt's own thumps, to introduce this melancholy evocation. Gradually, the guitars rise into an angry response, retreat into reconsideration, and flare into a final hiss.

In another version a standout song (missed on the accompanying L.A.'s Roxy concert in April 1991 disc), "Decay" showed on the BBC radio sessions Waves how the band could transform this tune based on an Eastern modal progression into a vehement expression live in the studio. In its original version here, it remains too muffled to reveal its full power, but the fading snare in the last seconds hints at what production might have captured.

The Roxy concert, on tour with Lush, shows a Ride diligently trying to capture its striated studio sound before an enthusiastic crowd on a small stage. The album's title track here distended, the early song "Like A Daydream," and two standouts dating back to their original demo tape--"Chelsea Girl," and the closing "Drive Blind"--allow the band a looser, unsettled energy that transforms their live abilities best. These particular songs at the Roxy compliment those on Waves, along with those on Live Light a few years later.

The band's most consistent songs came early in their brief career; they got grandiose, they tired, and they bickered and burned out. Even their original album needed to pause after so much energy expended.

"Paralysed" hints at Andy Bell's subsequent band's sound; Oasis could have written this. The fact I prefer Ride to Oasis may show the relative position of this track in how I rank its songs. It follows its titular feeling, or lack of feeling, too closely. Effects mask a weaker tune. Moulder's attempts to improve Marc Waterman's original production (abandoned in the making of the record) wander off into a work in progress. Its best moments remain a creepy sample, as if a crowd at a football match is being trampled. Perhaps a sly joke?

With "Vapour Trail" grace returns, and beauty arrives. A basic "la-la" garnishes the gentler vocals, and the music (augmented by keyboards and ending in strings) delivers an accessible example of a short shoegazer song. While the twin guitars of Ride earn critical acclaim, again I credit the drums for their constant guidance.

This album, in its American version, now takes over. "Taste" shows a lighter production style, more Beatles -meets-Byrds. This may document a period of the band before Moulder's direction, as these next three songs were on the British Fall e.p. "Here and Now" with its harmonica shuffles a mid-Sixties reference into a lysergically tinged, sleepy mood. It tries to move ahead, but the ambiance drags it back. This exemplifies the band's adaptation of earlier post-punk bands merging their perspective into that of previous visionaries. However, the song outlasts its welcome. By now, Nowhere, a dense, thick collection, needed to end.

The original U.S. album closed with its heavier title track. It imposes itself on the listener, over Gardener's half-chanted invocation. Harmonica wafts again, but now ghostly, above an array of processed guitar drones, an uneasy drumming pattern, tambourines, and a bass turning in on itself into a growling sound mix. This feels more like a bad trip than a pleasant ramble. It crumbles as if a plane going down into the sea, and the water washes over the remains of this song and the album as composed, as a seagull soars above the crash landing.

This re-release adds four songs from their fifth e.p., 1991's Today Forever. One can hear the next album, the prog-rock leaning Going Blank Again, already approaching. "Unfamiliar" stands more detached as the voice sinks into the churning, not chiming, guitar effects and the bass and drums thicken into a less distinguishable mass. Sustained pedals continue with the acoustically based "Sennen" while "Beneath" returns to the janglier feel of Fall. It finally wraps it up with a nearly symphonic, cinematic "Today" which could inspire Sigur Rós. Ride's tone keeps dispersing, as the band fades into its sleepy phase. This band stretches itself, and in these final songs the expanded Nowhere leaves behind a punchier, cheerier sensibility to sail into vast introspection.

5.0 von 5 Sternen If You're Already A Fan Of This Album....This Is A Must Have! 4. April 2014
Von M. McKay - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
First off, before I review this remastered edition of "Nowhere," let me say a few things about Rhino Handmade. It's a great little subsidiary of Rhino for fanatics only. However, the remastered sets you get from this label really do seem "handmade." They know you're a fanatic and they know you're willing to spend the money if you want it bad enough. I've bought two different sets from Rhino Handmade and my verdict is that you sort of get your money's worth....and you sort of don't. For one the packaging, from what I've experienced, is ALWAYS bloated to raise the price. There's so much extra packaging on these things! The Delaney and Bonnie set was this huge box just to house four CDs and a small booklet with a few loose photos thrown in. While the 20th anniversary edition of "Nowhere" is better, it's still rather large to only be housing TWO CDs and a booklet in the middle. It's like a small coffee table book. I don't know what went wrong in the manufacturing but there was glue stuck to certain pages of the booklet which kinda ticked me off. But the music inside makes up for it all. Because it's the "Nowhere" you've always loved....only BETTER.

The remastering on this one (along with the 20th anniversary remaster of their second album "Going Blank Again") was done by Nick Webb at Abbey Road and reveals certain elements in the album's mix that you've never heard before. The remaster makes the album sound more open and bright. I don't recommend listening on headphones though because this album could already damage your hearing the first time around, and now it REALLY can. It's even hard to keep it at a semi-loud volume level on my big old stereo system. I don't know how much compression was used on these remasters....but let's be honest....this was a very compressed sounding band to begin with! There really is no such thing as crushing the dynamic range with Ride. You once had it loud...now you've got it even louder, but clearer. But you can actually hear what Bell and Gardener are playing on their guitars on tracks like "Kaleidoscope," whereas before you really couldn't. Loz's snare drum pops and snaps like machine gun fire. And Steve's bass playing is much more pronounced in the new remaster showcasing just how good he really was.

If you've never heard the "Today Forever" E.P., then prepare yourself for a real 4 song treat after "Nowhere" finishes. "Sennen" is noisy but majestic in melody. "Beneath" is very melodic (heartbreaking, but only because it will give you tears of hope and joy) and sounds more like the melodies you hear on "Going Blank Again." It would have been a good fit on that album. And "Today" is breezy, blissful sonic heaven....gentle and pretty until it builds into a harrowing crescendo for the last minute or so. Sort of like a good acid trip suddenly going bad. The 2nd disc is the bands show at The Roxy here in Los Angeles on April 10, 1991. Very good but mainly the material sounds like the studio versions.
