3 stars i learned Riverside thanks to your site..They aren't the biggest name in the market so when i saw you guys rate this album with 5 stars over and over again i said what the hell?Why i haven't listened to it yet?So the time passed and i heard right before 10 minutes..So here are my thoughts..It is NOT a masterpiece..This album lacks that little things that mak an album masterpiece..Don't get me wrong..I liked it a lot,but for me a masterpiece HAS to shock me..and this album doesn't manage it.It impressed me!However the difference between them is huge..I don't know why but i waited that SLS was very technical but all of a sudden it's not..i mean it has these moments but it offers to us feeling passion and more mellow parts..But that's a good thing..This is what i want from a good album..I also noticed some Anathema DT PT and a bit of Pink Floyd sounds..It is a solid album that enjoy the listener with their musicianship but it does NOT have the special elements such as Images,TPE or Operation Mindcrime have..Solid 3 stars..
