Format: Audio CD
The third album from the lead song writer of the classic Appetite For Destruction album. This is a really decent album and generally under-rated.The songs do have a kind of Stonesy feel to them but they are original. Highlights of the album are the rockin opener RIDE ON, the psychadelic SPAZED, the surprisingly catchy PRIMITIVE MAN, the lyrically-vague but musically strong HERE COMES THE RAIN and the stunning HIGHWAY ZERO. I would recommend this album to fans of more laid back rock, because this is NOT Appetite For Destruction part 2. I gave this 4 stars because nothin's perfect.

I was very excited to receive this item from Japan in it's original artwork CD form. The opener 'Ride On' is one of Izzy's best tunes with a great middle break section and an equally good outro. 'Spazed' is a fantastic psychedelic rock tune as is the instrumental 'Trance Mission'. 'Primitive Man' sounds somewhat like the Ramones but with Izzy's own take on their sound. All the other tunes are good time rock & roll and are very enjoyable. The great 'Highway Zero' ends this great album.

This record is much better than River, Fire & Concrete, though not quite up there with 117, Ju Ju Hounds and Like A Dog. It's a shame he never promotes his music or tours, as it beats any of his old band mates recent efforts.

Ride On Baby! 29 April 2000
By Eric Conway - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
You & me, sailin deep,so Ride On Baby! Thats how this disc kicks off, rockin'! Izzy takes you on a free spirited journey, where you can see the colored wind blow, California.The other rockers like Primitive Man & Highway Zero hit you right between the eys.Like John Fogerty's Lodi,Izzy takes you to Needles,where theres nuthin'goin' on except great folksy acoustic guitar playing.Izzy keeps the disc interesting with the cosmic Spazed & Trance Mission. The real great song here is The Groper.Izzy pours great acoustic rythyms out of his blusey soul.All in all this disc keeps you entertained & keeps your toes tappin'.

HOT RIDE 11 Feb 2000
By amir asias - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The charm that izzy got is the story of this project. it is not a monster produced. it is the first kickdown on your motorcycle as you hit the highway. it have a live recoreding sound with almost no limits, you can only achieve this with great players like we have on this one. with a help of rick richards on guitar duff mckagan on bass and taz on drums izzy takes this music jam to a great highets . this is the perfect album for a sunny day ride on the highway . for those who come and look for gnr they may find something familiar but izzy is riding through the sunset in his own way with no compromise on anything staright and rough. listen to "primitive man" , "ride on" ,"here comes the rain " and "spazed" the heavy tunes on the record as the hard-rock-punk spirit is in the air . the great instrumental "trance mission " with the eastern touch in it you can almost touch sahara sands... the self street wise tale of " needles " the country groove of " the groper " and the ale- aerosmith " highway zero " complete these great ride with a feeling of more. this album is for those which the rock still in their blood. it got diffrent rhythms as you expect from izzy and the guy delivers it with joy you can hear it ! this battelship band invents herself for the third time. there will be always a place for this kind of albums on my collection the kind that izzy do the ones that you always come back to.

it's good izzy, but...... 24 July 2000
By mike sheon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
i am a huge fan of izzy. during guns, post guns. any izzy is good izzy. his first cd was a truly great album that even the rolling stones themselves could only wish they still had in them. that was a good album. his second disc 117 degrees was an even better album. this one Ride On falls short to me. i love it, but it could have been more. some of the tunes are great. the title track whips along like rock n' roll should. bouncy, a little cocky, and fun. spaced is cool tune reminiscent of rocks-era aerosmith. however highway zero sounds so intense. you can actually see somebody getting chased by the cops while the songs is playing. the rest of the tracks here seem a little under cooked. it's not a total loss, you just feel like the ride on this cd went a bit longer.

Izzy's Best Album! 13 Aug 2000
By "oldfan2" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Ride on is really rocks! Izzy really seems to have recaptured the raw vibe of AFD and Right Next Door to Hell, Perfect Crime and Double Talkin' Jive from UYI I; especially on the songs Ride On, Spazed, Highway Zero and the bluesy-cool The Groper. It's much better than his first two solo albums because the sound is more GNR than wannabe Stones/Faces a la the Black Crowes like 117 degrees and Ju Ju Hounds and some of his stuff on UYI (i.e. better to do a modern synthesis of the Stones than to rip them off blatantly). The album maintains this sound throughout (with the possible exception of the blase "Needles"). As a fan who's heard Duff's "Beautiful Disease" (I never heard anything from "Believe in Me" except the title track), Slash's Snakepit's It's Five O'clock Somewhere (and four or five of the songs from "Ain't Life Grand"), Gilby Clarke's albums, Axl's "Oh My God", and the "The Spaghetti Incident", I can say with some confidence that Ride On is the best album by GNR/a GNR member since UYI II. It's just a shame Izzy didn't release it in the U.S. and thus I (and other Izzy fans) had to shell out about $30 to buy it. If you're a serious GNR fan it's worth the steep cash outlay.
If you were in it just for the singles, the price may be too steep. As was the case on his previous two albums, Izzy's vocals are mediocre. The same can be said for Izzy's lyrics. They are vague, often repetitive and generally uninspired. This is most evident on "California," "Primitive Man," "Here Comes the Rain" and "Hometown", all of which are very strong musically but lack the lyrics to match. In addition, Izzy lacks Axl's ability to be occassionally poetic or even romantic.
Overall, if you're a fan who needs a strong power ballad on every album, look elsewhere. But if you're like me and think ballads are just a nice way of using terraced dynamics to make a great guitar solo stand out, this is for you. It's the closest glimpse of what GNR could have been if they did not break up.

Rock N' Roll Baby! 30 Jun 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Straight up, no bones rock n' roll. This is why GN'R died when Izzy left, he was the one with the sound...
