3 stars I'm writing this review from the perspective of a big Panic Room fan. Other Panic Room reviews suggest that the band's music walks the line between classic rock and progressive rock. That's an excellent description of this album. The album is also very melodic, expertly played, and beautifully produced. Anne Marie Helder has a lovely voice which beautifully suits the music. Her lyrics are thoughtful, moving, and coherent (especially for a prog band!) If you are interested, the lyrics are presented in an entertaining and creative way on the band's official website. SATELLITE, the album under consideration, is good, but it's not the best representation of the band. It seems like Panic Room was trying a variety of different approaches to the songs here to see which would be the most successful. The results are inconsistent. To be fair, there are some really good songs here; the title track is one of the band's most memorable. However, if you're interested in Panic Room, VISIONARY POSITION or their later albums are better examples of what the band can do.
