I posted 5 albums but only 3 appear, it seems Boards Of Canada "Music Has The Right To Children" is not showing, and, maybe, the Orb's "Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld"

Re: Best [non-Stereolab] album of the 90s?

I was lucky enough to stumble upon Ride in school. The deal was sealed when I heard Like A Daydream at a disco in 89/90. I never really liked the scruffy folks that were into 'indie music', but I didn't let that put me off :)

So, yes, I've loved my choice since its release. That said, there have been spells when I haven't spun it, but I always come back to Ride, eventually.

20 years on the music still excites me. The mark of a great album, I'm sure you'll agree?!

You know, I never really got into Ride for no apparent reason. I absolutely loved Leave them all behind, a song I had on a mix tape from radio recordings. I do have their albums Nowhere and Going Blank Again (thanks to friends with big hard drives) so I will have to give them a listen.

I can't see any of them but they are great albums. I assumed given our average ages that most people would have heard their choices at the time. For me, I can think of only a handful of records I liked in the nineties that I no longer like. I guess my taste was pretty developed by then. I certainly like some things less than I did but I wouldn't sell the CD or anything.

I like the Red Hot Chili Peppers a lot less than I did because they became a stadium band with boring power ballads but I do still give Blood Sugar Sex Magic a spin because the production is about the best I have ever heard. The fact that the vocals are not to the fore in many of the tracks, the guitar sound is incredible and the bass and drums sound so raw. I haven't heard much talk about production or engineering on this forum and to be frank, I know nothing technical about it but I love the sound on that album despite the lead singer being a bit annoying.

I'd say, based on the music I know you like, you're almost assured to like those albums.

The Today Forever EP is a particular peak (you may have some of those songs on your Nowhere rip, 3 of the EPs songs being tagged on to cd in some territories).

OX4 on Going Blank Again is my fave tune!
