 :P

I've always seen their name thrown around here, but I never came across their music, until the people I was staying with this weekend put some of this (and Hawkwind, Pineapple Thief, and The Mars Volta) on their stereo. I don't remember what album it was though.

Don't worry, all Riverside albums are great.

Also, so do you like The Pineapple Thief?

Yeah yeah I know there is a "the" in it, I  was just really lazy and didn't think anyone would notice/care. :p And they were ok, I heard some of their stuff on last.fm before so it wasn't really anything too new, but I have the album "Tightly Unwound" now, so I'll have to check it out some more when I get the chance. ;)

The Mars Volta was great too, I never cared for them until yesterday (maybe it was all the drugs!)

But anyways, I'm sidetracking this thread. :p

Speaking of this, I'm still incredibly jealous about Netherlands and UK getting Riverside with The Pineapple Thief as guests...

Once again I feel incredibly jealous. I've been waiting for them to play this song live for three years. Now when they did for the first time, it wasn't here. :(

No. It's nothing new, and everything on Out of Myself does it way better.

It is a good song. But there are 8 better songs on SLS, and around 33 Riverside songs I'm aware of (counting also Lucid Dream IV and Rapid Eye Movement).

You act like that would be unusual.

Tons of bands come over for a festival or two and that's it.

yea but they have a decent following here, at least do a new york show while you are passing by, i am sure they fly out of somewhere around here.

Chances are that part of the deal for NEARfest probably included them not doing any other shows within so many miles, if at all.

Last minute news: doing a tour on a different continent is rather difficult from the financial point of view, especially if we're talking about a progressive band with 4 albums.

So I am listening to the Reality Dream Trilogy, and I was wondering... do the bonus tracks from Rapid Eye Movement fit in on the main album anywhere, and if so, does anyone know where "Lucid Dream IV", "Back To The River" and the title track "Rapid Eye Movement" fit in the sequence of the tracks of the main album?

Lucid Dream IV is a loose continuation of the Reality Dream instrumentals afaik, but it's not connected with the trilogy (though I love it, and live it absolutely kicks ass). Back To The River is completely separate I think. Rapid Eye Movement would have a place as the closing of the entire trilogy imo, though I'm not sure about that. (The only words there are "Wish I had dreamed you before", which kind of makes sense)

Ah okay... well, I just wanted to make sure I had a completely sequential track order for my "Reality Dream Trilogy" playlist on my iPod so I can listen to the whole thing with a proper order, but I guess the first two could go anywhere, so I'll probably just place them between the last track of REM and the title track at the very very end of the playlist.

Bought REM recently.. I'd place it better than OOM but don't like quite as much as SLS. Loving Beyond the eyelids, 02, and ultimate trip (first half mainly).

I'd rank the albums:
1. Anno Domini High Defenition
2. Rapid Eye Movement
3. Second Life Syndrome
4. Out of Myself (still haven't listened to it enough)

I don't know the extra-songs from REM, so should try to get my hands on them.
Also haven't checked out the EP yet, i should.  :o

REM is my third favourite album ever and I doubt it will ever change. ADHD and SLS are very close. OoM is last, but... it's still amazing.

I've never gotten the hate for REM.
It's fantastic, and it has some of their best songs. (Beyond the Eyelids mainly)
