5.0 out of 5 stars For all the idiots out there... January 1, 2006
By nfoar77

I just think you should know that this has nothing to do with the european Riverside: The one that has been compared to Opeth and Porcupine Tree. I see that some of you have bought this album thinking it was done by them...Ha!

5.0 out of 5 stars "Riverside -- One"-of-a-kind October 20, 2003
Format:Audio CD
It is truly a shame that a band with so much promise was never given a chance to flourish. When Riverside's One album was released in the early 90s, it was just when grunge was getting to be popular. So Riverside was quickly overshadowed by the new trend.
The 'One' album is incredibly beautiful. It has a sort of dreamy fuzziness to it reminiscent of the shoe-gazing genre. The lightly floating guitar riffs and sweet/thoughtful lyrics can only bring a smile to the listener's face. The song "Waterfall" is absolutely gorgeous, and "Mansfield Park" (my personal favorite)is sensitively written and upbeat. The whole album is a gem. There is not a single song to dislike. All you have to do is stick it in your stereo and let it play.
Riverside released another album in 2002 entitled 'Taste. Even though it was put out a decade or so after 'One', it sounds as if the band took up right where they left off. The result is an album similiar to 'One' but with a little more of an edge.
Riverside's first album is astonishing. There is so much talent and charm packed into it! If ever you happen upon it, don't hesitate to add it to your collection. Because this 'One' is unforgettable!!

5.0 out of 5 stars How pop should sound May 11, 2006
By j_benj
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I consider this album a jewel in my music collection. I can't say enough about this record.. it's a pop masterpiece, no question. In my opinion, it stands up there with The Smiths, The Stone Roses, The Ocean Blue.. even The Beatles. It's an absolute joy to listen to.

The only bad thing about Riverside, is that they only put out two albums. The world needs more quality music like this :) And since it's out of print, snatch these copies up before you can't. You won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This CD Makes my "Top 10 Stuck on a Desert Island" Picks December 15, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album is one of those rare gems which you will enjoy from song 1 through the very end. So sad these guys broke up before they ever became BRILLIANT. If you like The Ocean Blue, you'll LOVE Riverside.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolute PERFECTION April 25, 2013
By grunch
Format:Audio CD
Notice every review is 5 Stars.....that is because from start to finish One is an absolute rare gem. Every song is lushly beautiful and melodic and you can listen to this CD over and over and never get tired of it. It is one of my most prized pieces of music.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing production February 18, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I had the chance to see Riverside live after buying this recording on cassette, and can honestly say that the band had a hard time duplicating the power and depth of "One" live. I mean that, not as a knock against the band, but as a glowing testament to the production that makes this record such a timeless peice of work. The guitars are so unique and powerful, the drumming is emotive ans inspiring and the vocals are numbing. You WILL play this record over and over. It draws you in and puts you in a coma that frankly, you don't want to come out of. Some of my friends have said , "It's such a simple record, musically." and I have responded, "Exactly". The beauty of "One" is in it's simplicity, it's pop charm, and the way it's tonal mastery creates emotional depth few records have acheived. A masterpeice of it's genre, many have tried, but few have succeeded. Worth every penny.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much More Than Waterfall July 26, 2007
Format:Audio CD
As I was learning about "The Ocean Blue", I had seen that this band mentioned now and then. Though I really never had taken in interest in them until this year, learning that "Steve Lau" from TOB had produced this album. Until the album came I had found out that the videos for "Waterfall" and "Cinnamon Eyes" were on youtube. When I had recieved this album, I had mainly listened to "Waterfall" because that was there main song I knew and I had originally didn't care for "Cinnamon Eyes" that much. As I had listened to the album more, I learned that there was no other song like "Waterfall", but there was many other great songs. This album even though great, could have used some more songs that would have got this band a second hit. The other songs on this album I would recommend besides "Waterfall" and "Cinnamon Eyes" are "General Nature", A Slow Fall and Mansfield Park. As you may know or not, "Riverside" had recorded another album for Sire, but "Riverside" was dropped before it was released. As looking on other sites and amazon, I had found out that other label released "Taste". But I have never had come by it. So I had bought it off of riversidetaste, in which Glenn "Riverside's Singer" still sells it for $19 including shipping. If you like "Alternative Pop" this album comes recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost Classic October 11, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Wherever the members of Riverside may be today, they can be sure that they have left a pretty, heartfelt album behind, doomed forever to used cd stores and the luckiest of collections. Listen to the longing in songs like "Careful Light" or "Cinnamon Eyes" and you will see a band that had promise, if only they were given the chance to succeed. If you happen upon this CD, pick it up... you won't be sorry.

I put this one and get that same smile again. This never gets old over the years. I always come back to it enjoying it just the same. It would have been tough to match this one.
