A five tracker, Ride doesn’t shy away from an ambivalent radio-friendly mantra from the outset, with opener Two.Time.Love displaying all of the classic symptoms, though the sporadic squeals could have done with some variety, or ideally done away with altogether. Lead single You’re Killing Me is however a braver attempt in comparison and strikes a chord right away.

 

Likewise, It’s You – essentially an acoustic jig of some sort could have trodden off the beaten track by a bit, a race in which closer Wait For Me wins by a country mile, with its folk elements interspersed with Mott’s lush, atmospheric vocals. Might as well give them a thumbs up for an upcoming LP, then.
