4 stars Formed out of the ashes of the greatest neo prog band of Poland,COLLAGE ,SATELLITE are the brainchild of the former's drummer Wojtek Szadkowski.He started the band around 2000 as a solo project,before recruiting Sarhan Kubeisi on guitars and Zbyszek Bieniak on vocals to record a demo.Bieniak left and two ex-COLLAGE members got on the board,Robert Amirian on vocals and bass and excellent keyboardist Krzysiek Palczewski.In 2003 their debut ''A street between sunrise and sunset'' sees the light,featuring also ex-COLLAGE guitarist Mirek Gil on most of the tracks.

Musically speaking,the album seems like the natural step after COLLAGE's disbanding,though it's less intense and more emotional and melodic,following the great results of its fantastic mix and production.Amirian's vocals are absolutely sensiotanal,presenting the public on of his best performances and Gil's guitars are immediately recognizable by his tremendous solos and floating melodies.Szadkowski delivers another technically perfect drumming,while Palczewski is propably the strongest ace of the band,playing in his familiar,ethereal style rooted both in symphonic passages and deep atmosphere.It's an album perfectly balanced between song-based parts and instrumental themes with nice harmonies,melodies and growing emotions.While neo/symphonic fans might find this one almost a masterpiece,''A street between sunrise and sunset'' could be an album of universal recognition,as it can easily be heard by anyone who just wants to come in touch with some strong,delicate and emotional music.A highly recommended release!
