5 stars When I find myself playing a record over and over again I know that there must be something special with it. After playing "Out of myself" dozens of times and after seeing them playing live in Holland they really hit me with their music. The music on this cd is from very heavy to very sensitive and everything in between. Great technical drums from Piotr Kozieradzki with fast and smooth tempo changes (I just love this guy's drumming', especially live). Then we have got an outstanding guitarist with Piotr Grudzinski. A bit of Steve Rothery like kind of playing' sometimes I think but for me that's an advantage. The keyboard player Jacek Melnicki does not only looks like a ghost (under those white lights but he also plays like a ghost actually. That means that he gives the music of Riverside an extra mystical and ambiance sound whiteout playing him to the frond. The bassist rocks and plays the bass guitar and he sings at the same time and both on a high level. I will not write a story of every song on this cd but every song has its own atmosphere. I am still not sure which cd is better, Second Life syndrome or Out of myself but for me they are both masterpieces you must have!
