Underrated band of the week


May I be narcissistic for a moment? To quote myself – “Riverside make mind numbingly beautiful music” Well, it’s damn true.

Three albums; Out Of Myself, Second Life Syndrome and Rapid Eye Movement, each magnificently crafted pieces of art. Start with second effort Second Life Syndrome, it’s a masterpiece of prog, in my opinion – listening to songs like “Conceiving You” will only strengthen my argument.

The band is so multifaceted, this only made evident by every song they’ve written, from the aforementioned “Conceiving You” to “Artificial Smile”, from “I Believe” to “Losing Heart”.

Recommended album: Second Life Syndrome
