5 stars Two years after the release of their debut album, Out of Myself, Riverside came up with another masterpiece that truly placed them among the biggest names in the current prog scene.

Essentially, Second Life Syndrome follows the footsteps of its predecessor (as to be expected since this is the second part of the Dream trilogy that culminates with Rapid Eye Movement). Energetic guitar parts? Check. Emotional compositions that reaches deep into the listener? Check. Dreamy keyboard soundscapes? Check.

These elements form the core of their music and with Mariusz Duda's dynamic singing, completes the signature Riverside sound. It's hard to offer a worthy successor when so high an expectation is placed considering the benchmarks set by Out of Myself, but Riverside has done a tremendous job here that deserves all the accolades that come their way.

4.5 stars rounded to 5.
