1 stars There is nothing wrong in adoring Porcupine Tree! Steven Wilson is imho one of the finest musicians in Progworld. There is nothing wrong in getting REAL excited of the music Riverside has made in the past few years. For me one of the revelations of the new millennium. But......what a shame.....Riverside obviously adores Steven Wilson THIS much that they are copying his style, voice, well...just about everything. They've left their own identity behind and crawled in the skin of mister Wilson. "Rapid Eye Movement" is NOT the music I want to hear from Riverside. Well made, no discussion about that, but not Riverside. Any starting band sounding like this, will get great reviews AND the advice to work on their own sound and personality. But this new effort of a (once) great band is a huge dissappointment to me.
