4 stars Riverside's Memories in my head in only an EP with three songs totaling little more than 30 minutes. But it feels like a complete album. A wholesome artistic statement, what to me is a definition of an album, as opposed to, you know, a bunch of songs. Here Riverside show their atmospheric side. Songs feature lots of feedback, fade-outs, hypnotic bass lines and melancholic singing. But songs also have a rocking core, usually around 4-5 minutes, quite hummable, too.

If you are a fan of their more metallic previous album, ADHD, you might think that Riverside has gone the opposite direction. But don't despair, their follow-up, Shrine of New Generation Slaves, is a balance between the two approaches.
