Carnival Of Light

Carnival of Light is the third studio album by British rock band Ride, released in June 1994 via Creation Records. The album is named after the lost song by The Beatles of the same name. The album showcased the band’s shift from shoegazing to a more traditional, folk rock sound. It was not well received by critics, and by the end of 1994 even the band members had become disillusioned, referring to it amongst themselves as “Carnival of Shite”, although in a 2022 interview Andy Bell stated that he had “made peace with it. It’s got a lot of good tracks, like Moonlight Medicine and Birdman”.
