If you were ever going to mix extreme noise with meditation, I suspect this would be your soundtrack. Ride were the first band to pick up the Shoegaze tag, and it probably did them in eventually: scenes die, fans get older, everyone tries to pretend it didn’t happen, it didn’t mean what it meant to them, it was just a phase they were going through, they’re over it now.
But this beast of a song will carry you over the roofs and into the sky, if you let it.
They had to do a cut down version – record labels are like that – but there’s no point to it, as it doesn’t have the journey of the real version, found here. If it means no video clip then so be it: you don’t meditate with your eyes open, after all. Stick the headphones on, turn the volume up, and fly with them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xcyfPXF770U
