4 stars Their third release and the 3rd part of the Reality Dream Trilogy see Riverside continue their brand of Progressive Metal with great effect. The opener "Before The Eyelids" again makes me think about how good a voice Mariusz has got. Lots of PROG music suffers from poor vocal performances, but definitely not here!

02 Panic Room, what a song! Schizophrenic Prayer, another good one!. This album is constructed and executed in similar style to its predecessors which makes Riverside one of the artists I enjoy most to listen to. These first three albums are equally good and there's not much to choose between them.

The bonus disc features Lucid Dream IV, which I believe, is part of the Reality Dream instrumentals found on the previous 2 albums. I would recommend Riverside to anyone wanting to enjoy good solid Progressive ROCK!

Ozymandias | 4/5 |
