4 stars Well, Satelliteīs second album might have been a hard one for their members. After all, their debut was hailed as a masterpiece right from the start (which, by the way, it was). So the second effort would be ever compared by it. How to keep the standards? Would it be as good? After all they had proved they could outshine even their former band, the legendary Collage (who had a masterpiece of their own, with Moonshine). Expectations were very high indeed.

Well, the answer is simple: very good. Not a masterpiece, but still very good. A great feat, considering it was released in such a short time after the first one. thereīs something magic about this outfit. It simply works! Great melocies, fantastic keyboards layers (Krzysiek Palczewski is one of progīs best and most distinctive keyboards man nowadays), awesome drumming, emotional vocals, beautiful guitar parts. What else could I ask for? Ok, it has some flaws here and there. But the more I listen to it the more I like it.

Conclusion: another fine efford from one of prog`s most important bands of this new millennium. Just donīt compare it to their debut. Itīs so hard to deliver a masterpiece in a lifetime, much less a year after achieving such goal. But, boy, does it come close!
