4 stars The most impressive about this album is that it is a debut. The character of Riverside, now well known and distinctive by prog fans, is obvious and solid from the first to the last second of this album. Probably the most famous prog band from Poland today, Riverside managed to play prog metal with character, assimilating their influences (mostly Porcupine Tree and Dream Theater) and presenting a very emotional work similarly followed by "Second Life Syndrome" two years later. The intro of instrumental "Reality Dream II" one of the most inspired and intense I have ever listened to. The guitar solos in the epic "The Same River" are amazing, "I Believe" is a great ballad (Steven Wilson is present here), and "OK" is the best melancholic closing. Favourite tracks: "I Believe", "Reality Dream II","OK".
