This is simply excellent,
This review is from: Out of Myself (Audio CD)
Lots of reviewers comparing Riverside to Dream Theater and Pink Floyd; I must be a little older than the other reviewers because I can hear the influence of Camel, especially from the 'Mirage' album; strong elements of Nektar's Tab In The Ocean and Sounds Like This; strong hints of later Gong albums; amongst the quieter tracks and accoustic passages, some elements are quite Caravan in style.
If you like early Rush albums and early 80s Rush and any of the above, buy this, you won't be disappointed.
What this eclectic mix produces is well balanced, well written and a well crafted album that will be a treasure in your collection for more years than some of the other purchases you have or will make.
This was my introduction to Riverside, it certainly will not be my only experience of the band that is Riverside.
