5 stars One of the most powerfully creative, moody, emotive, and artistic debuts in recent years, showing off a perfect blend of subtle atmosphere and heavy aggression-- Out of Myself is a must have for fans across genres... so long as they like their music bleak and usually depressing.

If the slow build up to the heavy instrumental chorus of The Same River doesn't hook the listener, then Mariusz Duda's powerful bass and incredibly smooth vocals will. His deliveries range from quite whispers to a confident tenor crooning and, yes, harsh guttural roars as beautiful juxtaposed as one could hope for. This, combined with the sprawling, lush, dynamic songs and dark energy make for very, very enjoyable listening.

While comparisons and inspiration can be obviously extrapolated, none of them can deny the creative sound and style Riverside has created here, with only their first release. Highly recommended.

Songwriting: 5 Instrumental Performances: 4 Lyrics/Vocals: 4 Style/Emotion/Replay: 5
