This, Polish band Riverside's third studio album, "Rapid Eye Movement" doesn't disappoint. The album is progressive, complex, sometimes haunting & challenging, and clearly Riverside.

The album starts dramatically with a sound that could easily fill an arena, and immediately informs the listener of what they are about to experience is something special.

"Beyond the Eyelids", the first track is an intricate eight minutes containing some catchy hooks, searing guitar solos, and a thumping chuggy rhythm to boot, and sets the mood that continues throughout the whole album.

High moments include "Panic Room" (the single), "Ultimate Trip" (the final track) and particularly "Parasomnia", and are likely to be fan favourites. While "Through the Other Side" and "Embryonic" are far more mellow contributions which offer a respite and a chance to reflect on what surely could end up being a strong contender for Progressive Metal album of the year.

If you have enjoyed any of Riverside's other work, this will please. If not, give them a try, as this is possibly the most accessible album to date.

The Limited edition has the inclusion of a second disk, that is a welcome addition that although wouldn't justify that much to the collection if you were asked to pay double the price, as of the five tracks, two are more tranquil versions of the main album titles.

Track two "Lucid Dream IV" is very proggy and perhaps over compensates for the more mellow tracks 1 and 3, with plenty of twiddly keyboards and guitar solos.

Back to the River, the fourth track, is more than a gentle nod to Pink Floyd's "Shine On You, Crazy Diamond" as it even has an excerpt from the original - but is a nice addition that could almost sit on Floyd's original and not be an ashamed clone, but an additional track.

I cannot believe tht this only has one review, that's insane!
This is such an amazing album, from the first opening seconds of the first track, I was hooked, Mariusz' voice is so well harmonized and sounds incredible. The music itself is also very slick and versatile. True to the prog-rock genre, their music is experimental and evolves and changes into different tempos and styles within the same songs, as well as across the whole album. The lyrics are lovely too, this album, and indeed their other albums, are prime examples of brilliant pieces of music. These guys clearly know what they are doing, and love music with a passion, I don't even listen to rock or metal normally, but Riverside just have something special that can be appreciated from any music lover. If you are not listening to this, then you need to pull your finger out and check these guys out, you won't regret it.

2007's Rapid Eye Movement was the third full-length studio album by the Polish Progressive band Riverside, and served as the story conclusion to their concept-trilogy "Reality Dream."

Musically, Riverside play a mixture of 1970s influenced Progressive Rock sounds, a little touch of Neo-prog and a lot of more modern Prog Metal sounds. If you've heard them before you can hear touches of things like Tool, Porcupine Tree, Opeth, Pain of Salvation etc as well as the obvious Pink Floyd influence, but crucially all delivered in a fresh and original way. There's a distinctive Riverside sound all of its own, that more evokes the spirit of those acts than sounds like a rip-off or a medley of covers.

In terms of quality, the band are absolutely top notch and a coming out with some of the most enjoyable music available right now. This album is a fantastic addition to anybody's collection. It's the kind of grower that you keep getting more and more out of on repeat listens and should more than satisfy anyone who's curious about the band.

Admittedly, stylistically a few people may be disappointed by the album, but equally many fans will be pleased. You see, the band experimented with adding a bit more of a Metal influence on their previous album "Second Life Syndrome" and "Rapid Eye Movement" takes that idea even further, which may scare off some of the fans who absolutely hate all things Metal, but equally will please fans with a more Metal background.

As well as incorporating Metal, the band try their hand at a few shorter and more succinct songs, such as `O2 Panic Room,' `Rainbow Box' and `Cybernetic Pillow' which on the one hand sound like they may have felt out of place on the band's debut, but absolutely fit within the context of this record.
