Huge RIDE fan here, and maybe the only band I'm a completest with when it comes to collecting. I wish RIDE had just taken the stronger songs off Weather Diaries and this and made that an album. I've had this since it came out and now (what is it 3 years later) I've maybe listened to it 3 times? That's disappointing for a favourite band. That being said, I suppose I am comparing this to the old EPs and 1st two LPs, which as we all know are absolutely brilliant. I do have to say though, that "remix" album they did was just embarrassing. LOL. If anyone reading this doesn't know the early 90's Creation records band Adorable, def check them out, you will NOT be disappointed. Peace

This is actually the album that introduced me to RIDE. I heard End Game playing in an Essen, Germany record shop, and I bought the album on a whim. I have always enjoyed shoe gaze from a far, Lush being the entry point, but I really dug this album. Future Love, End Game, Kill Switch, and In This Room being some favorites. As someone that is starting to explore the back catalogue, I found this to be a good entry point. After to listening to the EP collection and Nowhere, it was interesting to hear where the band ended up from where they started. I can understand why someone who started listening to RIDE from the early point would be disappointed with this album, but from a new fan of the band, I think this is a solid record, with some great tracks, amazing playing, and smart themes.

I also have a great memory attached to this album so it is a bonus for me.

Was a huge Ride fan in my yoof (obsessed). Going Blank Again is still my favourite album - more poppy than Nowhere but uncompromisingly Ride.

Carnival was disappointing, Tarantula was awful and then it was radio silence for 20 odd years. Mr Bell ran off to join the circus, Mark lost all his hair and Loz and Steve put themselves in cryostasis.

OK shoot me now 😑 🔫 ... Weather Diaries was fine but it felt pumped. I prefer this album. The songs have more staying power - Clouds of St M maybe a bit saccharine but affecting nonetheless. Jump Jet is Ride of old - play it over and over and never grow tired of it. In This Room and Future Love are great.

It will be interesting to see where they go from here.

( ... however, if you are a Ride purist everything after Today Forever was awful 😂 )

This album is a grower. I bought the CD and I'm enjoying every track. I liked this one more than Weather Diaries. The CD sounds really good, hopefuly I'll get a vinyl copy. Favourite tracks: 6 , 7 & 12

Is it any coincidence that I think this is ace (after never giving Ride the time of day) and some of the core hardcore think it's trash?

It's freakin' superb. Some massive in your face tracks with some cracking wonky shoegaze. Not a duffer in sight, all killer no filler.

Dont agree with the negative reviews here, Future Love, Repetition, Clouds of Saint Marie, Jump Jet. There are some great tracks on here. Sounds perfectly fine too, not mindblowing but far from disappointing.

“Ride or Die” is a phrase many of today’s youngsters say, and I should know, because I have heard them say it. And so, if I was given the choice between having to listen to this lukewarm batch of Ride songs ever again, and imminent death, I think I would have to choose eternal rest!!

Very disappointed . Seems thrown together and hardly a single track which sticks in your head.

RIDE is in my top 5 favourite bands of ALL time, LONGtime fan, but this is their weakest to date (excluding that pure shit of a remix album)

Compared to 2017's "Weather Diaries," this is rather disappointing. "Weather Diaries" was a fantastic reboot for Ride; much better than I had anticipated for 27 years after their debut. "This is Not a Safe Place," however, is about what I'd expect for a band that's been around this long. It's not a total waste, but seems to be lacking in strength of songwriting and melody.
