Best Riverside Songs

I had to make a list of songs for this underrated and incredible Polish progressive band.

The Top Ten

1 Second Life Syndrome

15-minute epic masterpiece - I have no words for the guitar riff in the ambient intro... - petrucci75hammet

That guitar solo in the outro... m/ One of the most soul touching solo out there!

2 Egoist Hedonist

I love the futuristic, avantgarde sound of this song - completely original, with a great build-up into a groovy chugging riff - petrucci75hammet

3 Deprived (Irretrievably Lost Imagination)

Best song they've written. Breakdown and sax portion is genius.

Off their most recent 2013 album ['S.O.N.G. S'], this takes a more jazzy turn, with really good vocals from Duda plus a sax solo towards the end! - petrucci75hammet

4 Escalator Shrine

Great closing epic to S.O.N.G. S - awesome chill vibe at the beginning, which speeds things up a bit in the middle then becomes contemplative in the final part. Another masterpiece! - petrucci75hammet

5 The Depth of Self-Delusion

With a really groovy yet chilled rhythm, this also has very interesting lyrics - petrucci75hammet

6 In Two Minds

This has an incredible sound to it, one of the most beautiful acoustic ballads I've ever heard - petrucci75hammet

Just makes me feel higher n higher! Incredibly awesome piece!


7 Artificial Smile

This has an awesome combination of progressive metal heaviness but also a slower, more prog-rock section in the middle. On a side note, it reminds me slightly of Opeth, except faster - petrucci75hammet

8 Caterpillar and the Barbed Wire
9 Ultimate Trip

The epic closer to Rapid Eye Movement, this has several stages to it, which follow each other perfectly - petrucci75hammet

10 Conceiving You

Love the guitar solo...good song

I just totally relate myself with the lyrics..

Best one.. without any daubt..

The Contenders

11 The Same River
12 The Curtain Falls

One of their more melancholy-sounding songs, this is a good example of the band's typically serious and deep music - petrucci75hammet

The first song I ever heard from this band. the melodic solos completely put me in euphoria. what an amazing song. RIP Piotr.

13 Dna Ts. Rednum or F. Raf
14 Reality Dream III
15 Celebrity Touch

Awesome riff.. Full of energy makes you wanna stand up and Rock some body

16 Left Out
17 Towards the Blue Horizon

Why is this too low?! It's an amazing song

One of the best songs I have ever heard. It is also the perfect tribute to Poitr strangely enough as he is playing guitar on this album before his tragic death..

18 Hyperactive

Great piano intro, which gradually builds into a Dream Theater-esque keyboard-&-guitar fest! - petrucci75hammet

19 We Got Used to Us

My favorite Riverside song, It's really touching and soothing...

20 Time Travellers

One of the best ballads out there. Distinct PT feel to this. Gorgeous vocals.
