"The River" was the band's first single and is a standard three-piece rock composition with a lot of Wah-wah pedal. An acoustic version with tar (lute), santur and drums was recorded in August 1995 at Studio Morin Heights (Morin Heights) for Alhambra but appears as a B-side on the "Temptation" single and the European Triptych Special Tour Edition 2000 album.
