I've never gotten the hate for REM.
It's fantastic, and it has some of their best songs. (Beyond the Eyelids mainly)
Same. It seems to be disliked by a lot of people and I really don't get it. It's hands down the most original, the most atmospheric, and the most varied of them all. And Ultimate Trip is just... can't describe it with words.

Have you seen it live at Paradiso?  That little improv vocal section really made my appreciation of the song go from  :heart to  :heart squared.


I still think I have more of a thing for Us, however.  When it splits into that 4 part harmony =  :hefdaddy

Quote from: Riverside
For their 10th birthday Riverside have prepared a special release which will be available during the forthcoming tour. The EP entitled "Memories In My Head" contains 33 minutes of fresh music. The songs have the following titles:

1. Goodbye Sweet Innocence
2. Living In The Past
3. Forgotten Land

Mariusz Duda: This new material, concerning (for obvious reasons) the themes of the passing time, will be a pleasant surprise for those who have missed the specific kind of melodies and space known from the bands early releases. We have consciously gone back to our beginnings to create a certain kind of a circle. This mini-album will contain three longer compositions most resembling those from our first two albums. The result is a quite interesting, spacious, film-soundtrackish, nostalgic, and most of all rock mixture, summing up our career's first decade quite well. "Memories In My Head" is an album which appears out of nowhere, without much promotion; we hope, though, that its content can defend itself and that it will evoke a lot of positive emotions. It does that to us, and we will prove it soon, playing those songs live at our upcoming gigs.

what a fantastic EP. is there a reference back to an older song in either the second or third song? i swear they do one melody that harkens back, then the whole band jumps into the backing part that goes around it, but the melody is tweaked a bit. will get more specific once i become more familiar with Memories in My Head.

ahhh, i was totally right. 1:20ish onward in "Living in the Past" references back to something or other, perhaps from SLS. then around 9:45 it returns, followed at 10:25 by one more (before cycling back to the former). now, to find the song it quotes... xD

I know what you're talking about, but I think it's only the first three notes that are the same (with the same tone).  Don't remember which song it is from.

I think Goodbye Sweet Innocence is my favorite from the EP.

We can talk about their third best album if you want. :)
The title-track is fantastic, one of their best songs IMO.

SLS is an AMAZING album.
I can vouch for that.  I just listened to it for the first time.
"All great works are prepared in the desert, including the redemption of the world. The precursors, the followers, the Master Himself, all obeyed or have to obey one and the same law. Prophets, apostles, preachers, martyrs, pioneers of knowledge, inspired artists in every art, ordinary men and the Man-God, all pay tribute to loneliness, to the life of silence, to the night." - A. G. Sertillanges

I don't think this band can put out something sub par.
Everything they do is just so good.

Just got the new EP, 'Memories In My Head', and of course it is brilliant.

I really liked especially the first album a lot. 'The Same River' and 'The Curtain Falls' have great atmospheric. I might want to check out that new EP.
Not 'Down To F***', but 'Dream Theater Forums' .

I heard Anno Domini a while ago and digged it a lot but I never got around to listening to any other releases. I finally gave REM a couple of spins yesterday and I was blown away, its too soon to say but I may even prefer it to Anno Domini.

What should I try next? I guess SLS? What about the EPs, are they worth it?

i find Memories in My Head a required listen; it's basically a half-hour coda to the OOM/SLS/REM trilogy. Voices in My Head, however, is more of a cursory listen. great songs, but not a super important release.

definitely keep going back in order though. have you heard all the bonus REM material? so many good songs that didn't make it!

Bump.

Been listening to Memories In My Head a couple of times the last weeks, and it is really growing on me.
What I love about it are all the subtle elements, I feel like it is the most laid back thing they've done, nothing on the EP is that heavy, and it's a great EP for nighttime listening, if you don't want something too heavy or disturbing.
It's just very chill, and laid back.
All three songs are great, can't pick a favorite at this time.

Next album in 2012 or something?
