3 stars I really thought I would like this band more then I do. I would describe their music as lush, melodic, pleasant, reflective and mellow. SATELLITE was born out of the ashes of COLLAGE, but nothing I have heard so far from SATELLITE measures up to COLLAGE's "Moonshine" record. Having said all that this is very enjoyable music, the kind I could see me listening to outside at night as I thought about life.

"The Evening Wind" opens with the sound of someone driving along and listening to their radio. The music arrives a minute in. Vocals follow along with a full sound. I like the vocals with strummed guitar after 4 minutes and later at 8 minutes. Some aggressive guitar 9 minutes in. "On The Run" features vocals, acoustic guitar, piano and synths. A full sound before 2 minutes. Lots of synths in this one.The guitar before 6 minutes is excellent as it goes on and on. More guitar 13 1/2 minutes in.This is such a pleasant tune. "Midnight Snow" is another laid back song that at times reminds me of George Michael. Haha. The guitar 3 1/2 minutes in is so good though.

"No Disgrace" is one of my favourites, especially the chorus. We finally get some passion on this one. Tasteful guitar and lots of synths as usual. "Not Afraid" opens with almost spoken vocals with synths. The tempo picks up before 2 minutes. This has almost a dance beat to it as guitar plays overtop. "Now" opens with spacey synths and we get some choir sections that sound like mellotron. And the vocals get unusually aggressive 3 1/2 minutes in. "Fight" has a nice beat to it with synths.This is laid back and catchy. Mirek lets it rip on guitar 3 minutes in. Nice. "A Street Between Sunrise And Sunset" has a ballad-like intro with piano. I like the guitar 5 minutes in and the guitar / drum section 10 minutes in. "Children" is pretty much percussion, piano and reserved vocals.

A "safe" album to be sure that really takes little chances. I like it.
