4 stars While listening and watching to this DVD, to me it seems that this DVD experience succeeds to keep me more involved in the music than their last CD entitled Evening Games that I rated with 3 stars. The reason is that I feel much more emotion and to me the music sounds more powerful and compelling on this DVD than on the CD.

During the start of this concert (recorded live in Poland, 2005) the atmosphere is great with enthousiastic crowd participation (clapping and cheering). Then we can enjoy the wonderful lightshow and the modern, very tasteful and often emotional sounding neo-prog by the Polish four piece band Satellite: inspired vocals, howling electric guitar, pleasant keyboard layers and runs and lots of dynamics. The next track is Evening Games, a perfect example how Satellite manages to keep my attention, despite the long running time of this composition (more than 15 minutes): a wonderful intro with soaring violin-Mellotron samples, followed by warm vocals, sensitive electric guitar and some exciting bombastic eruptions. In the other seven songs Satellite also delivers wonderful, very melodic neo-prog with flowing shifting moods and beautiful work on guitar and keyboards, emotional vocals (early Fish inspired) and compelling work on keyboards and guitar (lots of very beautiful soli with hints from Latimer and Rothery). The bonus video contains the video clip Love Is Around You, the docu Satellite Offstage and extras like a biography, discography and bonus audio tracks (On The Run, Now, Rush and Why).

The total running time of this DVD is more than 200 minutes, THIS IS A MUST FOR ANY NEO-PROG FAN!
