Following the succesful trio of e.p.'s and debut LP 'nowhere' in 1990, Ride had a quieter 1991 - releasing the 'Today Forever' e.p., touring some more (several tracks here were played on the TF-tour & their headlining slot at the Slough festival), and recording their second LP. Quite a lot happened in the interim - notably similar music made by peers such as The Boo Radleys, The Catherine Wheel, Chapterhouse, Curve, Moose, Pale Saints, Slowdive & Swervedriver and Kevin Shields' masterpiece 'Loveless'- perhaps the ultimate LP of this nature.
With co-producer Alan Moulder (who became the Smashing Pumpkins' own Butch Vig...)Ride set about extending their sound beyond the feedback-inflected music tagged 'shoegazing' by the music press (a.k.a. 'the scene that celebrates itself'!). There are a few songs here which are in the style of their earlier work - 'Time of Her Time' and 'Mouse Trap'- though they have a bit more sophistication than the prior work. It seems they'd perfected that formula and had to move elsewhere...
'Leave Them All Behind' was bizarrely Ride's biggest hit - at over eight minutes it was shown in truncated form on Top of the Pops. The opening keyboard drone prior to that pulsing bassline and psychedelic riffs suggest that Ride have done as the title suggests - left their peers behind (one effect of 'Going Blank Again' can be found in the work of the Boo Radleys, which shifted into a much more eclectic realm with 'Lazarus' and the classic 'Giant Steps' LP). 'Leave Them All Behind' is huge, all eight minutes are hypnotic - the final feedback sequence is hypnotic stuff and up there with MBV...

There was a lot of pressure for Ride to deliver a classic album by the music press- who declared this a failure and touted Suede & Verve as succesors- despite the fact grunge was the dominant genre with the impact of 'Nevermind'...Next to that 'GBA' seems a bit-prog rock; listening to it now it appears to have transcended its time & become a lost classic.
'Leave them all Behind' (a top-10 hit!) is the Nine-minute opener: a blend of The Who's 'Baba O'Riley' and their own 'Drive Blind' (with a hint of 'Disintergration'-Cure). This song is huge and features jangly acoustic guitars, "sky-high-fly"-lyrics, a Cure style bassline & an epic feedback conclusion. And the oblique statement-"I don't care about the colours...lights".
'Twisterella' is a great pop song, a typical Ride blend of feedback & The Byrds/Gene Clark. The lyrics capture the city & the hedonism on offer, in the wake of their success. It is somewhere between jaded & giving yourself up to these times.
'Not fazed' is a great groove- influenced by Happy Mondays- with a short, silly lyric. This is followed by 'Chrome Waves' (better than the more acoustic version on the 'Box Set'); it's a bit sci-fi (P K Dick, Ballard) and precedes Radiohead's similar work on 'OK Computer'.
'Mouse Trap' sounds like a follow-up to 'Seagull'- and despite some mediocre lyrics has some great guitar adventures. 'Time of her Time' (title from a Norman Mailer book) sounds like early Ride- such as 'Perfect Time' or 'Chelsea Girl'. 'Cool Your Boots' is another classic,sampling the same line from 'Withnail & I' that Orbital did on 'Planet of the Shapes' (its title courtesy of Danny the Headhunter); Lawrence Colbert's drumming are, as ever, excellent here.

I remember buying this back in my student days. Loved it. Everyone on my floor heard it a lot. I cut out the advert from the NME and stuck it on my door. I was 21 then. Now I'm an old man of 35. I dug it out a few weeks ago and ripped it onto my iPod. Love it. Everyone in my block of flats hears it a lot. The NME is glossy and trite these days. But this album can still hold it's own against any of the Johnny-come-lately guitar bands. It's a pop record, really. That's why people didn't get it at the time. If Oasis made it, it would be their best album. Buy it, download it, love it, stick something on your front door. Tell 'em Paul sent you.

I'm pretty young, 21 to be exact so for obvious reasons I was never into Ride while they were a band. However, I've always classed myself as a bit of an indie kid, but christ I hate modern indie bands. Razorlight, Babyshambles, The View etc etc man they all sound exactly the same, like punk with the distortion turned down.

Ride are the perfect example of how good indie once was, pre-dating Britpop they wrote some cracking albums... this is their best I reckon.

Ambitious to say the least, starting an album with a track just over 8 minutes long, but it works. The juxtaposition is amazing as Leave Them All Behind finishes and the classic pop tune that is Twisterella kicks in.

A lot of people would say Carnival Of Light is Ride's best effort, I'm not saying that's wrong but this one is certainly my personal favourite. It's a little more self-indulgent and places and maybe a bit more of a challenge to get into, but it's ultimately the more rewarding listen.
