Prog Reviewer
4 stars Riverside's extremely capable debut album sees the exploring a fairly spacey style of progressive metal which puts me in mind of Porcupine Tree's In Absentia, but there are a few more flashy, show-offy flourishes here and there which are a bit more reminiscent of the sort of thing Dream Theater might toss in - though much more tastefully done than Dream Theater usually manage. Although its Floydian soundscapes do drag at points - the album rather peters out during the closing track OK - on the whole it's a decent debut which marks the band out for greater things in the future. One for fans of the spacier, Pink Floyd-touched end of prog metal.
Warthur | 4/5 |
