4 stars Riverside has done it again releasing yet another masterpiece with their third and final part of their Reality Dream Trilogy. Their tag as an up and coming band should now be thrown aside. They really are one of the finest bands to have graced the progressive metal genre. Rapid Eye Movement is an even more depressing and darker album than its predecessors. This is a much more atmospheric release, there's a lot of subtlety here. The stand out tracks on this album are the three epic pieces 'Beyond the Eyelids', 'Parasomnia' and the astounding 'The Ultimate Trip', this is quintessential Riverside. But the rest of the album is also great. The ballad 'Embryonic' is another standout, a beautiful track with an awesome solo at the end. While I wouldn't say it exceeds their previous 2 efforts, it definitely is worthy of sitting beside those amazing albums.
