Words can't describe....
(5 out of 5 stars)

"While on vacation with my wife in California, a friend made me a tape of "Riverside". As we drove the coast from Astoria to L.A., I listened to "Riverside" several times. I fell in love with it right off. It never gets old. That was about 8 years ago. Last weekend I was on the road again, and I happened to bring that same tape with me. I listened to it again, and it touched me the way no other music really ever has. Even though I had listened to the tape many times, it was like I really "heard" it for the first time. "This Is For Life" touched me deeply. "Dreams" and "Man Is Alive"..... I can't describe the feelings they invoke. I absolutely "feel" this music. I remember some years back, I was listening to "Dreams In America" and it really affected me. I brought it to some friends house and asked them to listen to it, hoping that they too would feel the emotions and power that I had, but I think they just thought I was crazy. I like this music the most when I am traveling alone through beautiful country like southern utah, or california, or high desert.... buy it and listen and it will touch your life......"
This is by far Luka Bloom's best- an excellent effort
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Riverside" is the one album I would take to a desert island and in which I'd NEVER lose interest. It captures/exemplifies one gift of the Irish in both poetry and music: while appearing deceptively simple, a subtle and immensely detailed pattern emerges, leaving one with a range of responses to gorgeous melodies and engaging lyrics. Tracks like "Delirious" and "Over the Moon" provide melodic punch combined with great accustic guitar and joyful lyrics; "Man is Alive" and others provide a depth of sensitivity and intensity which balances the excitement of the earliest tracks. Balance is key, and the affect is practically perfect. People of all tastes will love this cd- and never get sick of it. All in all, this is Luka Bloom's best and most resonant effort thus far."
Still my favorite

"Despite all the great albums he's released since, this is my absolute favorite, with not a weak track (even "Irishman in Chinatown", a song he won't sing live, is charmingly goofy)....maybe because it was my first encounter with his fantastic talent back in 1990. Some favorite songs are "Dreams in America", "You Couldn't Have Come at a Better Time", "Gone to Pablo", "Over the Moon", "Delirious" get the picture! So strong, fervent, deeply felt, sigh.....if you're a Luka fan you HAVE to own this album!"
