4 stars In terms of line-up, Satellite is almost a reincarnation of Collage, the historical neo-prog Polish band. Indeed, the music is quite similar even if more recent. Still, it is with great pleasure that some great guitar parts from Mirek Gil are re-discovered. The man is really gifted.

Most of the songs are balanced between the neo and symphonic genre (the latter aspect being mostly underlined thanks to the passionate guitar). I would say that it is a fine combination for "A Street Between Sunrise And Sunset".

Melodic breaks are plenty and the emotion that emanates from most of the songs can be compared to several "Pendragon" songs. And you might know that I quite like them. This long album (which might well be the minus point), is full of harmony and fine instrumental parts; even if a song as "Not Afraid" would have been best avoided.

The whole "Satellite" project started in the mind of Wojtek Szadkowski (Collage drummer). He was responsible for all tracks (except one which is co-written). It is rather scarce that a drummer is credited for all the creative parts of a album to be underlined. Bravo Wojtek.

Most songs are really on the symphonic side and really pleasant. I would point out three of the longest tracks from this album which contains some fabulous prog parts (again, mainly guitar): "The Evening Wind", "On the Run" and "Now".

But not only those ones are intersting. The same passion is felt during the shorter "Fight" and even if the title track doesn't hold the same grandeur, Mirek is again great.

I am really charmed with this very good symph/neo prog album. Most of the tracks are well written, perfectly performed and nicely produced. This is one of the best neo-prog albums IMHHO. Four stars.
