4 stars 3.5 actually. I was in poland in the very week the album was released and I promised myself I would buy it. the shop had around 5 shelves dedicated to this Riverside album. And they had a pretty good reason for it! Rapid Eye Movement continues right from where Second Life Syndrom ended. Duda keeps on with his great melancholic, soft, yet angry vocals. Grudzinski with strong guitar parts, Lapaj with essential keyboard rolls, and Kozieradzk with good, and energetic drum works. The first four tracks are currently my favorites, especially Beyond the Eyelids and Rainbow Box. I tend to get out of focus (and a little bit bored) in part II of the album, but I hope to connect to "fearland" too. Anway, R.E.M is a very nice album, and though it might not be considered as good as Second Life Syndrom, I believe it deserves it's appreciation. And therefore I give it 4 stars. Long live riverside and prog rock!
