4 stars What we've got here is a mini album. It consists of five new song and three songs from their debut album, "Out of myself", played live.

The new tracks aren't bad at all. Simple (compared to most Riverside songs), atmospheric, and full of emotion, based more on the performance of the vocalist Mariusz Duda and on the sweet guitar solos of Piotr Grudzinski. You won't hear any odd time signatures, strange and powerful bass lines and as many will say this album is less "progressive" but this is not at all a drawback. The lyrics are pretty simple but performed amazingly well. It's like Anathema... They play simple music with very common song structures but what comes out is so full of emotion. The music mellow and depressing is enough to change your mood. The live tracks are a bit different from the original versions and are performed really well.

Overall, it's a very nice addition to any prog collection and a must for Riverside fans. What doesn't let me give five stars to this one is that (1) if I did that I'd have to give the studio efforts of the band more than 6 stars, (2) because the new songs are less than 25 minutes and finally (3) because the artwork is not good compared to the artwork of "out of myself" and "second life syndrom".
