Not too impressed with their new album so far. Listening to some tracks on YouTube. Nothing special, kind of lackluster really.

Overall I really liked the album, It was my first exposure to the band. Really, I didn't feel that there were any weak tracks.
Best album of 2013 so farLOLThumbs Up

One of Riversides' best. An album that takes a few listens to full appreciate, so don't give up Horizons!! I'm sure many fans are shocked by the transition from heavier stuff to calm, almost Porcupine Tree-like resemblance. After Anno Domini, I thought they'd get heavier and heavier.. This was a welcomed change for me!! Gotta get some variety in sound, right? I can't help but listen to the album on a daily basis.. I only wish it was longer!! Shocked

I thought "Escalator Shrine" was as good as anything they've done, but concur with you on the rest of the album, unfortunately.

Liked it on first listen, but need to play it through a few more times to get the real feel of it.

I'm about 3 listens through. Really disappointed. ADHD was a great evolution for them. This is boring.
 
Need to listen more before I say for sure. Their past material tells me it will be worthwhile. It took me awhile to really dig ADHD.
You are quite a fine person, and I am very fond of you. But you are only quite a little fellow, in a wide world, after all.

Thanks progger7.   Tongue
 
All the bashing here from the headbanging kids who play MP3s on youtube tell me that this Riverside effort probably
has a fair bit of dynamics and outside the box compositions.  Sounds great to me!
 
Looking forward to it.
 
I love Mystery's - One Among The Living, and that is also one that the young headbangers crucified, kinda like the
same vibe here.
 
Cheers!

I'm not liking the sound of some of the opinions on the new album. This was my first anticipated album of 2013 (while still trying to catch up on 2012, and even 2011 still). But, I enjoyed Memories In My Head that came out after ADHD, is that any indication of the feel of the new album?

Don't sweat it Darkshade, I've given it a few runs on Spotify over the past couple of days and really like it.  Based on the Spotify listens, the real deal should be in the mail in a few weeks.  It's not as heavy as  . . . well . . . anything else they've ever done, but it really works.

Get off your pedestal there.
Sorry if we think the album is boring/not as good as you think. The hype doesn't seem to have us going "BEST ALBUM 2013".

Eh don't let DennisMoore get you going, he's a good guy, just a little out there.  Try to imagine a drunken combination of Liberace and Randy the Macho Man Savage and you get Dennis.  He's mostly already forgotten the comment and gone off to tell someone about how great Air Supply's Greatest Hits sounds in his new 13.1 surround sound system complete with smell-o-vision.

Big smile

Ah, my handsome young friend Horizons,Big smile

I thought my little remark about "headbanging kids who play MP3s on youtube" would draw you out from your mom's basement.  Nice to see you, been a while.Wink

You really must upgrade from those cheap plastic PC speakers and youtube, this is after all a "progressive" forum. ...for $150 bucks you could really upgrade your soundscape:

http://www.techbargains.com/news_displayItem.cfm/334421

just sayin....     Embarrassed


Ok, all kidding aside..., it is true when you and your fellow headbangers crap on some new album, I tend to love it. So I am excited to maybe have some fresh meat to sink my teeth into.

What was your take on Mystery - One Among The Living?

I'm not sure how boring compositions will be fixed with sound quality.

Liberace???  Holy smokesConfused.  I did not see that one coming, at all.Ouch

And Air Supply??? Confused  Confused   Confused    I have never even seen one of their albums.

I think I will stay back at The Flower Kings thread.  You guys play too rough here.Shocked   Shocked   Shocked 

Oh, the  "13.1 surround sound system complete with smell-o-vision."  comment was brilliant. Cool

Excuse me while I go fetch M27Barney. When he & I come back here some people are gonna be really sorry!Approve

P.S.  @ Roland, I guess you have never recovered from me calling you "fish face", but from your avatar.....Wink

The two are completely separate.  Sound quality is kinda like:   Having good manners or dressing well.  Those are always good to have going on.   But yes, any music has to be interesting regardless of the quality..

You say "boring compositions"?  Who is on the high horse now???

You didn't tell me if you had checked out the Mystery record.....
