Don't like to burst your bubble, BUT.....
on 8 October 2004
i found this album a fair disappointment at the time, and still find it so
to me, Ride were all about sugar coated jangly guitars and incoherent lyrics.
on this album they became intellectuals. this marked the start of their demise and fragmentation as a band imo. i was thoroughly miffed when i listened to this album for the first time
leave them all behind of course is classic ride, but really its the only song on the album that i'd listen to. and if you like that song your moneys far better spent on the leave them all behind EP with the excellent 'grasshopper' instrumental
i really liked ride, but this album was the turning point for me. and after carnival of light i was out the door
