Though there will always be fans who'll consider Out of Myself Riverside's high point, it is a given that vocalist Mariusz Duda's vocals have improved significantly since the debut came out. Now, Duda incorporates all kinds of styles into his vocalizations with great results. His unique chants that open up "Beyond the Eyelids" function as a foreshadowing to the album's emotionally dark aura throughout its course. His voice is always strengthened by mood-intensive synth work and textural guitar voicings, which eventually transform into jam-like sessions with a strong rhythm presence. The instrumentation on the track is underpinned by keyboardist Michal Lapaj's electronic sequencing, which works brilliantly underneath Duda's doubled vocal harmony that occasionally borders on aggressive outbursts.
The band must have been heavily inspired by Porcupine Tree while composing "Rainbow Box", right down to the vocals. Built around an instantly memorable main riff, this is one of the shorter pieces that lends itself to crunchy rhythm variations, around which Piotr Grudzinski's textural guitar lines are woven.Read more ›
The disc is divided into two parts, Fearless (5 songs) and Fearland (4 songs). My disc also came with three "bonus tracks" - "Lucid Dream IV" is a killer instrumental, "Back to the River", another instrumental, pays homage to Pink Floyd with riffs from "Shine On You Crazy Diamond", and the third track is remix of "02 Panic Room". 2007 has provided many great discs and this is right there with the best of them.
1) Beyond the Eyelids: The opener brings in the rock quick and boasts some great percussion work. It soon fills out and offers itself, really, as a sample of what you will hear throughout the album with differentiating synth and guitar interplays and Duda's soothing vocals becoming strained at the end of musical moments. "If I were myself I would be someone else"
2) Rainbow Box: The bass guitar provides the musical motif for this song and dominates all throughout making the song feel, at once, very simple though it distracts from the playful and more complex keyboard parts.Read more ›
