Guest review by
We waited two years for the new Riverside's album but I can tell you it was worth the waiting! These Polish kings did it again! They remain an underrated band even though their tour with Dream Theater brought them new fans and certainly showed them to a wider audience. They are more experienced now but still have the risk factor in their music. They showed it in this album that they are still going through new grounds in their music.

It's definitely worth getting the bonus CD imo.. i'm not usually a fan of bonus tracks, but I loved these ones.

Pink Floyd's "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" riff at the end of "Back To The River"...nice addition.

Its like enjoying a smooth ride after spending a hard day and looking at sunset not too loud not too much ambient

8.3/10 for me. Nowhere near as good as Second Life Syndrome or Anno Domini High Definition but still a great listen.
