5 stars It IS a masterpiece of prog rock/prog metal. Riverside has found their own style. It isn't just Polish band playing like Anathema, Porcupine Tree, Opeth and Dream Theater, because they have already reached the same level and now they are one of the biggest progressive bands. "Rapid Eye Movement" is a third part of the trilogy, so it's rather similar to other Riverside albums. But this one is the best. It has a little more space in the sound, the producers did a great job. It's more original. Of course, fans of Porcupine Tree or Opeth would like it, but, like i said, it's Riverside and they play their own music. What about their style? It's very emotional. Sometimes melancholic and silent, sometimes angry and agressive... And simply beautiful. Try listening to "Behind The Eyelids" - there are crunchy riffs, virtuoso solos, melancholic parts and - what's most important - beautiful melodies. I don't want to write about it, I love listening to it. That is why this is the end of the review. I can't describe such a great album with words and I don't want to, it's just music. Listen to it, don't write...
