5.0 out of 5 stars Riverside - Shrine Of New Generation Slaves 21 Jan 2013
By Gentlegiantprog TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Shrine Of New Generation Slaves, from 2013, is the fifth full-length studio album by the superb Polish Progressive band Riverside.

If you haven't heard Riverside yet, but are a fan of Prog, Neo-Prog or Prog Metal and especially if you are a fan of bands like Pink Floyd, Marillion, Porcupine Tree, Opeth, Pain Of Salvation, Tool and Karnivool, then you really ought to at least check them out. They blend familiar sounds from many types and eras of progressive music into a distinctive and fresh sound all of their own, and manage to write great songs in the process.

To call Shrine Of The New Generation Slaves a departure from the band's established sound may be a little bit of an overstatement, but its certainly no repeat of anything they've done before either. Don't get me wrong, the band are still playing creative, interesting and thoughtful progressive music that is accessible but with a bit of depth, and that owes as much to the 1970s as it does to both the 80s and modern Prog and Prog Metal bands like they always do, but the mood of the record is very different.

Its a lot brighter, bouncier and almost happy sounding, which is not something you would usually associate with the band, save perhaps 2009's ADHD album. Its definitely closer in spirit to ADHD than it is to 2011's Memories In My Head EP, but then again its really not all that sonically similar to ADHD either when you get right down to it.

It feels like the band just want to mix it up a little and avoid becoming stale. The main riff from the lead single `Celebrity Touch' for example sounds more like something from a stoner rock band, or perhaps even Coverdale era Deep Purple.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great new album - Back to the light and shade 25 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD
Great new album from Polish prog masters Riverside. I see this as a bit of a return to the light and shade of their first few albums but it's been given a modern twist with a slice of accessibility. Think Porcupine Tree with some Floyd and touches of Marillion. Throw in some classic rock and some Jon Lord-inspired Hammond organ and you are getting there. Not as heavy as some of the previous albums but it is a real grower and wets the appetite even more for the UK gigs in March and I for one will certainly be there in Glasgow. Spread the word.

The polish progressive rock at it's very best! I have been following Riverside for a few years now buying each sucessive album and they simply keep getting better and better. Shrine of New Generation Slaves throws a full spectrum of emotions at you, it is beautiful and almost haunting one minute and heavy and angry the next; it is a real homage to 70s progressive rock in it's arrangement, long guitar solos and lots of layers to the music but at the same time Riverside's unique style manages to make it sound modern and original. Buy it! you will not be dissapointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Modern intelligent music 23 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Agree with the enthusiasm of other posters but do not get the retro references. There is nothing 80's about this sound. The only real 70's influence is some great Hammond style soloing but it is so contrasting in this setting that it is a stark surprise. This is a dense but accessible, complex yet listenable experience. It rocks, riffs and rolls. The sound and production is current in a good way. You will recognise it as Riverside yet it takes them in further in the direction of tighter song structures with more complex arrangements. You can head bang to some of it, dance to other bits and drift away on others. One of only a few bands moving the rock agenda forward and still attaining high quality. the bonus disc is almost ambient house. Stick with it. Some great Sax playing.
Only thing I do not like is the title of the album. For a genre that suffers due to perceptions of pretenciousness, and a band with such direct lyrical approach, it idoes not help nor reflect the content.

5.0 out of 5 stars Polish Pleasure 27 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD
Just wanted to give this another 5 stars. I never look forward to new albums from any band as I'm often disapointed, but this came out and was blown away by it. I've followed them for several years and this is their best album so far; much more accessable and mainstream (I must be getting old).

5.0 out of 5 stars Riverside's best album to date. 4 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is less heavy than previous offerings and all the better for it in my opinion. There are shades of Pink Floyd and Deep Purple evident in some tracks... and surely that's got to be a good thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2013 Album of the Year? 17 Feb 2013
By D Clark
Format:Audio CD
Others have written eloquently about this album, so I will keep this short. I was eagerly anticipating this album and it hasn't dissappointed. The single "Celebrity Touch" is an instant like, but I found the more I listened to this album the more it grew on me with some killer hooks buried in the soundscape these excellent musicians produce. At the start of 2013 it has clearly set the standard for Album of the Year. A must buy for anyone with an interest in intelligently written progressive music.
