3 stars After the brilliant "Anno Domini High Definition" and the amazing "Memories in My Head" EP, "Shrine of New Generation Slaves" is a bit disappointing. After long anticipation I hoped to get a sequel of the previous 2 albums but instead I hear a mediocre or even below their level album. there are some good point there. The guitar riffs and the singing are very good but the compositions are lucking something from Riverside's elements. Unlike the mentioned previous albums the songs in this album don't have anything in common. it's one song after the other, you can shuffle them and still get each song as is, no connecting thread in the shape of common theme, motif or even just a plain mix b/w songs. It seems that Riverside pay too much attention to their unique sound and production and less on the compositions.
