5 stars A friend of mine at work who was more of metal fan (death, heavy, et. al.) yet complicated and sophisticated in his stance (could argue the relevance of growls/vox, etc and has opened my ears to many new approaches to experiencing music) was leaving the parking lot one day and jamming to some Metallica...I jumped his situation and offered a bit of progressive guidance, as it were - - I told him about this band that I had recently discovered from Poland - RIVERSIDE (thanks again to my nephew) he said - "hook me up" and I did ...needless to say - - Second Life Syndrome is a masterpiece of prog metal that united both the Prog head and the Metal head! I challenge anyone who likes things to evolve before them to listen to this masterpiece of a heavier prog metal formula and to retort in any way that this album is not a masterpiece within the genre. By the way - - He later emphatically requested all of the Riverside I had.....An absolute gem!
