Ride - Nowhere (1990)

I like Ride's Nowhere a lot more than I like My Bloody Valentine's Loveless. There, I said it, and it felt good to get that off my chest. To my ears, it's just a more enjoyable, more tuneful record. That's it. We can argue about it, but I'm pretty sure neither of us are gonna budge. Cool?

Anyway; you can call it shoegaze, you can call it psychedelic revival, dream pop, '90s alt-rock, you can call it whatever you want. I call it all those, but mostly I call it one of the best records of that decade. It's also hopelessly British, and that's why I love this sort of stuff from the Old Country.

So download it. Then get back to me so we can talk about it...
