Albums about death are always hard to talk about. And not just albums about conceptual death; those are all right. Albums about one death. Real death. Someone's there and then they're not.

After listening to the first three singles, this could be a major success. I know Piotr and Mariusz's father would be happy with this one.

It's really good, and a suitable way to say goodbye to their friend

Have never followed this band closely, but I think I listened to most, if not all, of their albums at least once. This is probably the best thing I've heard from them though.

EDIT: so good I am considering going to their concert near me soon...

"The Night Before" is out of this world. The entire record is stellar but that song and "Guardian Angel" are probably my favourites so far.

I knew that Duda playing guitar would mean more acoustic stuff like on Voices in my Head and I wasn't disappointed.

Cool! Let me know what you think. I'd suggest listened to it more than once though to get all the layers

R.I.P Piotr Grudzinski

Linger beside me, you're all I have left
Tell me the story of your life
There's so much that I have got to find out
Until the next darkness arrives
I do not have too many requirements
Only one wish before you go
And before I crumble back into the dust
Take me to the river down below
Take me to the river down below

What a comeback. Truly amazing and overwhelming work, full of emotion and grief. What an homage to Piotr Grudzinski. There are so many songs i like on this álbum, it´s really difficult to choose only one that stands out from the rest. But i have to say "Lament" is one of the best songs i´ve heard recently. What a masterpiece of a song. "Guardian Angel", " The Night Before", "River Down Below", "Vale of Tears", "Wasteland" are all spectacular. One of the best records of the year for sure.

Very sad album.

That's the best description for this album, and also is the strength of the music done here

Really inspiring, emotional and a bit low key album compared to most of their stuff. Acid Rain is one of the best songs I've heard from them recently. The second part of the album wasn't as impressive to me though. Stellar album at any rate.

Great fusion of progressive and melancholy. One of the golden ones of 2018. Every song have a momentum.

Wasn't convinced on first listen, but much preferred it on second listen, so hoping that trend continues

This band has changed the sound of their first albums a lot and it has also changed a lot with the death of piotr but not all of them continue being an excellent band, this album seems quite interesting

I really need to check out this band. I found Lunatic Soul by accident and love that side project. I drifted away from normal prog a log time ago, but the songs I have checked out from Riverside I have enjoyed, just not sure where to start without just being a sucker and buying their whole discography looooolls ( I'm not old I just am not a fan of music streaming services)
