It's maybe my favorite album released in 2017! :D :o

The Ride has some gems on it. Only bc it failed to chart doesn't make it a bad album.

Loving the love for The Ride here. It’s easily among the best albums of 2017 for me. Solid album. 8-)

Somehow yes, but there weren't many good albums in general so it was easy

but a good album is a good album... and poor others for not releasing a good one... it seems good albums are hard to get and not everyone has that to their credit.

Yea, I still dearly love this album. I wish more people had actually listened to it and gave it a chance. She's so underrated now.

Somehow you are right. If a different artist would have sung this it would get nominated definitely

If Nelly was more relevant these days it could be better... Unfortunately, our world is unfair... :cry:
"The Ride" won't even be committed for consideration most probably ... :roll: :x :evil: :cry:

Now that we have most albums from 2017 this is definitely one of my favourites. Even my favourite maybe?

^Mine too! "The Ride" is definetely the best album released this year by a pop grl. It deserves more recognition. It could have swept the Grammys in a month easily.

Sad it did not get the attention it deserves. It is a very moody record which probably makes it less accessible to the easy listening lovers.

It's an alright album, but I can't say that it is either cohesive or consistent.

Listening to it right now. Nothing against Bruno (he's among my favorite male artists), but this should have been the Album of the Year. Unfortunately, Nelly is not relevant right so I don't think it was even considered.

It may not be cohesive but on the other hand I cannot find a single bad track on it.

Even side events like Right Road or Magic are pretty damn decent.

Exactly. Bruno did not deserve all these awards last night. Nelly's album is the best released in 2017.
