Though rightfully lumped in with the shoegazer movement of the 1990s, Ride are a much different beast than Slowdive and My Bloody Valentine. The quartet (whose Andy Bell went on to play bass in Oasis) more overtly mined the psychedelic pop of the '60s, supercharging the distorted guitars. Ripping, shredding tracks such as "Like a Daydream" and "Black Nite Crash" are too brash to just stand around staring at your feet, while the jangle pop of "Twisterella" and "I Don't Know Where It Comes From" were more overtly paisley. There's some classic, reverb-slathered bliss-out stuff in the middle there, though onstage, expect six-string flash.
