Among prog fans, few groups hold such pride of place as Riverside; within a genre that many of its detractors criticize for emphasizing style and technicality over substance, the Polish group have consistently produced music teeming with powerful emotion. A recent history beset by tragedy and setbacks has given good reason to further explore emotion and identity, which Riverside have very much done on ID.Entity, a record that looks both back towards their roots and also ever onward.

This is not a good album; like at all .. 😑

what's wrong with it?

Couldn't get along with it .. it was boring as hell .. i like prog though, opeth and rivers of nihil are my top prog bands so I get what a proper prog album sounds like .. this one I mean, didn't do it for me .. unlike the other album "wasteland"

I think I might need to give it another listen, but that's roughly how I felt about it so far too...it might just be because what I heard all felt very on the lighter side of things and I was expecting a little more bite, but for me Wasteland was a really good album that got me into this band, whereas this (at least initially) feels a bit "prog for the sake of prog" and all over the place.

Yeah totally .... guys you should listen to it several times .... it's a first rate progressive ..... yes it's not a very "heavy" album but you see a lot of quality in everything here I think it's a great album despite being it's not one of their best
