3 stars After COLLAGE, RIVERSIDE and INDUKTI, here's another Polish progrock band, their name is SATELLITE and they have delivered a beautiful debut-album. The first song is the 'epic title track' (clocking at about 16 minutes) and it immediately showcases the maturity of their songwriting: pleasant, alternating and elaborated arrangements with lots of surprising musical ideas. The musis has obvious hints from the Neo Progressive Movement, especially the guitarwork and the vocals strongly bring early Marillion ("Misplaced Chidhood"-era) on my mind. Despite these comparisons I notice that SATELLITE sounds fresh and modern, these guys did a great recording job, it reminds me of Peter GABRIEL his magical home- studio recording skills! The fourth song "Love Is Around You" is not my cup of tea, a sweet and poppy ballad that seems to be written for the charts. But don't worry, the other tracks are fine, modern sounding prog featuring changing climates, pleasant keyboards, some harder-edged guitarwork and strong and omnipresent drumbeats. The limited edition version includes two bonus-tracks entitled "I'll follow the rain" (from dreamy with acoustic guitar and piano to bombastic with strong and sensitive electric guitar) and "You know and I know" (polished neo-prog ballad with emotional vocals and soaring strings).
