5 stars It is one of my most favourite modern(90s-00s) albums. Second Life Syndrome is the second album from becoming popular in prog world polish band Riverside, and definetly their best one. It's not a that kind of album that is getting boring after several listening, I find it even greater after a few years of listening to it. About inspirations, it's harder to compare music contained on this album to other bands than their debut, they definetly gained more unique style. Guitarist, Piotr Grudzinski is definetly a fan of the Pink Floyd, but he likes also heavier, metal riffs, what I must say is the great mix. Bass lines provided by Duda, who is also a vocalist are very intresting and sometimes bass is leading the instrument in some songs. His vocals are changing in almost every song. The mood is not so mellow like on Out of Myself, there is more darkness and energy. The best songs like Volte-Face with awesome guitar work and agressive vocals, and epic Second Life Syndrome, are song imposible to describe :D

Olwe | 5/5 |
