5 stars To me Satellite is the continuation of the legendary Polish neo prog band Collage, and I view this record in that tradition. Satellite made two albums before this one, and this is the third album of a trilogy. This one holds the middle between the lighter A Street Between Sunrise and Sunset and the darker Evening Games. The opening track (s/n as the album) is a typical Satellite (/Collage) track with the characteristic highly layered sound and very strong melody, one of the best tracks of the album. It would have been right in it's place on the best album of Collage (Moonshine) and that says a lot! (10/10). The next track Dreams is the longest song on this album (more than 13 minutes), and is for Satellite more experimental. It resembles Porcupine Tree in places, without becoming derivative. The beginning is fiery, hard rocking, the second part has many shifting moods, ending in a recap of the opening hard rock theme, and the third part climaxes with a stellar guitar solo. (10/10) Downtown Skyline resembles the album Evening Games. Nice track, not the greatest on this album (8/10) Lights is a nice, soft intermezzo which gives you some breathing space before the next track (7/10) Don't go away in Silence is the third highlight of the album, with stellar guitar solo's reminding strongly of Rothery and Gilmour, and great melody, a true Satellite/Collage song! (10/10) Heaven can wait is again hard rocking, resembling Arena or Uriah Heep, with some delightfull piano interludes, (9/10) Finally, Forgiven and Forgotten is much softer, with a shuffle beat that (almost) makes you think you're listening to an '80 disco tune, which changes into an oriental song...(8/10)

This album is the best Satellite made upto now, and almost on par with Collage's Moonshine. If I could give half stars it would be 4.5 stars, but I'll round it up to 5 because it's the best Satellite album upto now!

Soul Dreamer | 5/5 |
