I did a poll about Steven Wilson's discography including his latest release, so I thought I should do the same with Riverside, so here it is. I think SLS is the favourite, but who knows...this should be interesting!

I'll go with Anno Domini High Definition. I don't really know their third album, but I'd probably still say ADHD. Their new one is very enjoyable though, and SLS is a 2000s prog classic.

My favorite is actually the Memories In My Head EP.  From their studio albums I still prefer the debut the most. But really, they are all great.

I can understand why people tend to pick Second Life Syndrome, but personally I connect strongest with "Out Of Myself". I enjoy them all a lot though, really. Not to mention there have been some great EPs too.

SLS is one of the best prog-metal albums that I've ever heard

Either their debut or ADHD.

I'll go with the former.

All are very good to excellent, but Second Life Syndrome is simply the best prog metal album I've heard and actually one of the 10 best albums I've ever heard.

1 - Out Of Myself
2 - Rapid Eye Movement
3 - Anno Domini High Definition
4 - Shrine of New Generation Slaves
 which leaves
5 - Second Life Syndrome
 
I'm probably the only one who feels this way, but SLS just didn't connect with me in it's entirety. Not that it's bad (Riverside have yet to release a BAD album)...

I can't vote but I'd say Second Life Syndrome followed by Out of Myself are my two favourites.

I'm gonna go with the latest, at least I seem to be unable to stop playing it, but before that it was ADHD.  SONGS and ADHD share one thing in common, I didn't take to either one of them right away and then they just took over my psyche.

I love these guys to death, all their albums and the EPs.  Not to mention Lunatic Soul.  Goddamn.

Agreed, Lunatic Soul is also awesome.  Can't get enough of that either.
