For me Satellite their previous studio album Evening Games and especially the DVD entitled Evening Dreams were the proove that this Polish formation is moving towards the top of the current progrock. About the new album Into The Night I had read a lot of positive stories and I can tell you, it's true: Satellite has made a very strong and professional sounding new CD that will please not only many neo- progheads but also those symphomaniacs who love modern prog.

On Into The Night (running time more than one hour) we can find seven melodic compositions (exclusive the two bonustracks I will talk about later) that often alternate between mellow, sultry, mid- tempo and bombastic (featuring a propulsive rhythm-section), that makes the music very dynamic. In Satellite their sound the guitarwork is omnipresent, often with howling runs but at some moments also quite heavy like in Heaven Can Wait and Forgiven And Forgotten. The keyboards are tastefully arranged, from lush violin-Mellotron, soaring keyboards and sparkling piano to bombastic Hammodn organ, majestic orchestrations and flashy synthesizer flights. The vocals sound very pleasant, from yearning in the more mellow parts to intense and emotional in the other pieces, this is an extra dimension to the music. The two bonustrack are no more or less than nice extra's, not at the level of the other seven songs.

I am very curious to the development of this awesome Polish formation, they fully deserve their four star rating and perhaps they are on their way to five stars on the successor of Into The Night, a big hand for Satellite!
