4.0 out of 5 stars Very good but...beginning to repeat themselves 17 July 2011
Format:Audio CD
Riverside's latet EP, "Memories in my Head" is a throwback to their sound of the "Reality Dream" trilogy - which comprised the Out of Myself, Second Life Syndrome and Rapid Eye Movement albums - rather than being a development of the heavier, more Deep Purple-leaning sound of their most recent album, "Anno Domini High Definition".

That latest album left the fans divided. As ever, many fans prefer their bands to stay close to the sound that originally attracted them and, for Riverside, that meant the original progressive-rock trilogy (which, sonically, also included the original EP "Voices In My Head"). That soundscape owed more to Pink Floyd than it did to Deep Purple.

However, there is a danger that one can also continue along the same sonic path for too long...and Riverside may now have reached that point. Personally, I feel that staying close to "Anno Domini High Definition" would have been a more suitable development. There is truly nothing wrong with the current EP, "Memories in my Head", other than the fact that one is always thinking: "I have heard this before...". Of course, should this be your introduction to the band, then I suspect you may well think that it is brilliant!

That concern is what prevents me giving this latest EP five stars. It is perhaps a bit churlish denying such fine music the full score, but I feel that the band are treading water slightly...they have a really massive album/sound just within their grasp...please just reach for it guys!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best release of 2011! 30 Jan 2012
By S. Bach
Format:Audio CD
Great EP. Only three songs, but they are long, and they are just great. Riverside sound purposely like on their two first albums from ten years ago again, and the melodies and moods are as good as ever, if not better. If you miss Pink Floyd try this. This is no clone, however... there's way to much originality for that. Great polish prog band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maturation complete 1 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
I am somewhat surprised by the earlier reviews. For me, this album shows a band that is comfortable in its own skin, knows what it is doing and enjoying the moment. I saw tham live ealier in the year when they released this and they were obviously enjoing playing the music, relaxed and free to express themselves. This is a real favourite of mine, played much more frequently that their earlier albums (all of which are indeed very good). I agree that they can step up from here, but enjoy this for what it is - an excellant 30+ minutes of modern prog-rock to savour - grap a large glass of whatever takes your fancy, turn up the volume and enjoy!

At the end of the live gig they promised a full album and tour next year - I hope they build upon what they have created with Memories in My Head - it certainly creates memeories in my head!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Album From a Fantastic Band 4 July 2011
Format:Audio CD
I love this band they bring something totally unique to the Progressive Table and they have never brought anything less than fantastic until now. Memories In My Head just doesn't reach the giddy heights of their previous releases. Hopefully this is just a temporary lapse in standards (after all this is just an EP) and the next album will of the usual superb quality.
