15 Songs, 1 Hour 11 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The great big waves on the cover were an apt visual metaphor for the ebbs and flows of noise on Ride’s debut, one of the mightiest and most influential albums by any shoegaze act. Yet for all the scope and force of songs like “Dreams Burn Down”—a textbook example of the quiet-loud dynamic that became standard practice for shoegaze and grunge acts alike—Nowhere is equally remarkable for the luxurious, dreamy delicacy of less turbulent passages like “In a Different Place”.
