      *****

      This has to be one of the most anticipated prog records in recent memory, and news of a double disk digipak version of 'Rapid Eye Movement' was met with similar enthusiasm and excitement. On the whole while the album delivers across the two disks, the main (disk one) album may take a little getting used to at first.

      Style wise REM is a slight variation on the previous two members of the 'Reality Dream Trilogy' and I'm not sure weather or not it's a variation which suits me, but gradually over time I found that the music became easier and subsequently more enjoyable to digest. Certainly on face value there are some excellent, slightly more subtle tracks like the beautifully crafted Schizophrenic Prayer which can be enjoyed straight off, while the likes of the opening Beyond The Eyelids are examples of Riverside's perfectly balanced lengthier tracks.

      Undoubtedly this is a high quality album and with every subsequent play something new is discovered and over a period of time I am sure it will be seen as a proven winner. The second disk bolsters the main album, and provides a couple out outtakes including the excellent Back To The River making this issue the obvious one to go for.
