4 stars The best surprise = there's no surprises!

Satellite has found itself and stamped it hard with a powerful and grandiose album. Into the Night's the 'natural' following of what Evening Games is, but with more oomph and less melancholy. In fact, we all liked what Evening Games was and as a neo-prog band, Satellite is doing it without hiding their influences. Big plastic keyboards, clean Strat and strong Fish choruses.

A strong high five is given to the early 80's in many textures, sprinkled here and there. I recall some acoustic guitar and keyboards a la Tears For Fears or the specific Stratocaster sound by Bernard Sumner of New Order. Again, everything seems to be airy and floaty, nothing heavy like their Polish collegues Riverside.

Satellite is all about dreamy ambience and the alternance of programming and the acoustic approach. Somewhat modern, the need to honor Genesis is still strong and yet no surprises here...again.

More mature and entertaining than the last one, time sure flies by when listening and as usual, a sign that everything is in it's right place.

Better, higher, happier.
