I do love Riverside, and they have been very well loved in this forum too. I guess there hasn't been much talk about them lately because they haven't released new material in a little while, and prog metal has lost a bit of the prominent place it used to have a few years ago. In the 00's when prog metal was at it's height, they were one of the top bands around.

Yes, being a new member I most likely missed all the Riverside discussions, particularly given that they haven't released new material in a while.

However, there a lot of bands who haven't released new stuff in a while that get discussed quite regularly here.

I guess the reason I posted a Riverside thread is because I was listening to them (along with Lunatic Soul) quite regularly just before I joined up here, and I was seeking some opinions on their output.

I'm pleased to see the regard they are held in here.

The bands being discussed and polled are mostly the most popular 60-70ís bands, which many canít get enough of. You donít see many other later, popular bands discussed much either. Like Porcupine Tree.

Gary, you stated your favourite Riverside album (yours is Love, mine is Waste), but I donít think you said what your favourite LS is? (Mine is Fractured, yours isÖ.?)

[EDIT] Hey look! I wrote a short post! Woop, woop! 🤪

[second EDIT] It occurs to me that, because of your signature, your favourite Riverside album should be the same as mine. 😜

Hmm...my favorite Lunatic Soul album would be a toss up between "Under the Fragmented Sky" and "Fractured". If I was forced to choose, I would probably plumb for "Fractured".

I do like "Wasteland" but I've spent more time with "Love, Fear and the Time Machine" and I do like the mellower feel of "Love...".

So how do you feel about Red Rider's Lunatic Fringe?

Riverside is amazing. Duda's voice is, IMHO, among the best in rock history.
