5.0 out of 5 stars Great album - hugely underated 9 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
I first heard of Ride on a 'Best of Year' tape attached to the front of VOX magazine - my first introduction to Indie music. The song 'From Time to Time' was their contribution. I was overawed by the layered melodies and ghost like vocals. I was smitten and bought the album as soo as I could. Overall, the rest of the album doesn't disappoint. The songs are varied enough in sound. Some of the lyrics are a litle lacking in thought and depth but hey I'll forgive them that. As one of the previous reviewers points out this is a different style from their earlier albums which, whilst I find enjoyable, don't have the same tightness and quality in production of Carnival of Light. This version of the album has three extra songs appended to the end that are in the same vain as the album and I'd only previouslyheard on an obscure Tour album called 'Live Light' - I always thought they merited being on the album. I've never heard the studio versions but expect them to not disappoint. I've just placed my order for this extended version.

Ride - you changed my life. Shame you couldn't polish up Tarantula!

A CLASSIC ignored, mainly due to a complete change of style and genre at the wrong time. A truly inventive indie band just say stuff it - we'll do a hippy album. Changing so drastically didnt hurt 'Primal Scream' but I feel sure Ride's die-hard audience felt betrayed and confused and they were not known enough to have any success with it, but hey, on its OWN merits it is brilliant!!
Flowing melodious emotional warmth and real confidant belief in what they were doing oozes from this album. Opening with 'Moonlight medicine' they declare ther aural intent using synth guitar and vocals to seduce you in. '1000 miles' harmonies flirt with your emotions and 'From time to time' has brooding harmonies from heaven washing through your brain like water.
With 'Natural grace' they pick up their guitars and blow you away with their intent change of pace and power seamlessly through wafting melody.
'Only now' is a true lovesong but the hook grips you, the chorus giving a lump to the throat as the guitar takes over. 'Crown of creation' is beautiful and has psychedelic guitar breaks within comfortable well structured melody and harmonies, and its Floydian sound makes you feel almost stoned as does 'Endless road'.
'How does it feel to feel' reminds you of their previous glory, much more intense although a little out of place on here but a good single.
'Magical spring' is a hippy rock song which grows on you.
'I don't know where it comes from' is upbeat again
and 'At the end of the universe' shows their psychedelic modern edge.
The brilliant vocalless more electronic remixed single of this and others from the album show that they still experimented.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good but far from Ride's best 6 April 2012
Format:Audio CD
Carnival of Light was a major flop when released, surprising as it was superior to most records produced in the mid 90s and fitted well with the Britpop era of the time. Its a decent record with some fantastic songs (Moonlight Medicine, From Time to Time, Lets Get Lost [on the special edition]).
If you are looking to check Ride out, try Going Blank Again or Nowhere first.
