5.0 out of 5 stars Music Heaven Syndrome, 4 Aug. 2006
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Second Life Syndrome (Audio CD)
I have had this CD for a few months now, I was impressed with it from the very first listen and time has not changed my opinion. For me, this is probably the best album from any Progressive Band for the last 10 years, the only recent albums that come close are Arena's Peppers Ghost and The Visitor. In a better world where quality music was the measure by which bands were judged this would be destined to become a classic along albums such as DSOTM and Close to the Edge, sadly in these days of commercial pap it will only be enjoyed by a minority. There is not a wasted note or lyric on this album and there are no stand-out tracks - THEY ARE ALL BRILLIANT. This band deserve to make it big...only wish they would play in the UK !

i assume you have not heard anything by porcupine tree or steven wilson then ?
although riverside are good don,t get me wrong they are slightly derivative of said PT in style and atmosphere,so do yourself a favour if you think that those arena albums have set the benchmark,then try in absentia,deadwing,fear of a blank planet or the incident from PT or insurgentes and grace for drowning by the PT main man steven wilson.or try the lunatic soul "solo" albums by riversides own main man,they are beautiful albums the black and the white ones and then impressions the instrumental one- all excellent.
hope this gives you some inspiration !?

Funnily enough, I started listening to Porcupine Tree very soon after writing this review - I'm completely hooked on PT now, have most of their back catalogue and have seen them live 3 times since. I still love Second Life Syndrome, although I have to admit Riversides latest (ADHD) was a tad disappointing.
