Format: Audio CD
This is a major achievement, it references several bands (Floyd, Porcupine Tree and Marillion spring to mind) but still manages to sound fresh and vital. The album opener, "The Same River" is absolutely breathtaking. It builds from an atmospheric,Floydian opening into a full-blown angst-ridden epic with all the right ingredients:plaintive guitar solos,pulsating bass, gyrating drums and melancholy vocals. "Out Of Myself" is next up and whilst it heavily references Porcupine Tree,not a bad thing in my book,it has enough going on to be fresh and enjoyable. "I Believe" with its acoustic moods sets just the right tone and the instrumentals "Reality Dream I and II" are a riotous joy of fretboard and keyboard jousts á la Colosseum II. "Loose Heart" and "In Two Minds" are more straightforward but are highly enjoyable nonetheless. "The Curtain Falls" is another mini-epic in the Pink Floyd tradition and has a wonderful psychedelic feel to it.The final track "OK" is "OK" with nice whispered vocals and dreamy synths. All in all a superb album with great performances throughout. Special mention must go to the vocalist Duda who by dint of his accentless singing manages to give the whole package an international appeal. This lot will go far! Highly recommended.

I have eventually managed to get this album (it'snot easy to come by now!) and having loved the newer two albums I have to say that this is just as good and as a debut simply superb. Other reviewers list the possible influences and everyone will have their own opinion, but they have hit the ground running and their record company need to really push this band because they have the potential to be huge. If you can get all three albums you will not have heard a better trilogy of prog in a long time. Now bring on a fourth one!

Many of the reviews here seek to give a reference to other bands which in a way is understandable as you are not gonna hear this on mainstream radio. However references can be misleading and even genre classifications can sometimes be too rigid. Riverside are a case in point. Yes there are elements of their sound which are influenced by some of the greats that other reviewers have mentioned, but what makes this album really stand out is the originality of the song writing and the inspirational arrangements. Add to that a powerfull production and great performance and what you get is one of the very best albums of this fledgeling century. Its prog jim but not as we know it!

I bought this on a whim as I'm a fan of Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, Pink Floyd and am always looking for new bands to listen to. This is quite franly a must for any prog fan. A debut album from this Polish quartet, it tells the story of a man's struggle with his inner demons. There are the whole range of tracks from melodic introspectives to full-on prog metal all beautifully moulded into a complete piece of work that never feels disjointed.
There are definite comparisons with the bands I named earlier as well as with Marillion, Sylvan and Opeth, but don't be fooled into thinking this is just an album of plagarism. It's a fresh take on the genre which never feels like your listening to a covers band and the maturiy of the whole package is astounding
for a debut album
I normally take reviews with a pinch of salt but don't ignore this stand-out album. It should be in every prog fan's collection. And if you're wondering about the where the last star went, well, so was I, but this lot can only get better so I'm saving it for their next album.

Out of myself the first album by Polish Prog Rock band Riverside is a Prog classic. It features some of the best prog tunes of the 21st century. My favourite tracks are "I Believe" and "loose Hearts". It is clear from listening to this album that Riverside would go on to do great things, which they have done with three brilliant follow up albums. They can do it all, Soft ballads, Instrumental, Good old Prog rock and even Prog metal style. It is a great place to start if you are new to Riverside, but it will soon be having you buying all riverside have to offer. Fantasitc album.

Format: Audio CD
Polish band Riverside has made quite an impact within the progressive metal community since their eponymous release `Out of Myself' in 2004. If this quartet continues along the same successful pathway they have been treading over the last few years, then there is no reason why they should not be the next big sensation as they have the worthy credentials that add up.

The music on `Out Of Myself' can be described as Prog metal/rock with tendencies to change into different moods and styles within the same song, odd time signatures aplenty, atmospheric guitar work, subtly arranged vocal passages with the songs ranging from four minutes to twelve minutes long.

Nevertheless, there are certain things about the way this band pulls this off that separates the `wheat from the chaff' with other like-minded bands in the progressive genre. Given time, the unpredictability of the contrasting passages seems to melt away as irregularity turns to pattern, the time signatures feel so natural they are barely noticeable, the song lengths add variety and the album is conceptual which leads to the songs being inherently and beautifully linked to one another.

So anyway, this is also Riversides debut release, making the sheer brilliance and professionalism of song writing even more astounding. I'll start off with the drumming - nothing truly amazing or technical here, but for this type of music that's not a problem as Piotr Kozieradzki keeps up with the irregular time keeping more than adequately, providing solid rhythm and a good foundation to the rest of the band.

The guitar work undertaken by Piotr Grudzinski is frankly superb.
