4 stars This is quite simply one of the best albums I have ever heard and though the followup to this one is even better, there is much to be mesmerized by when listening to it.

This band was born from the ashes of Polish band, COLLAGE. While I did like that band I often felt they underachieved. This is such a good project I'm not sure where to begin. You get a little of everything with it. There is a sensitivity to the lyrics that makes you feel the music. The style is reminiscent of GENESIS from both eras but only in small sections. When listening to NOW, you will hear them rise to great power with dexterity. This takes place in the middle section where Wojo's drums combine with the heavenly keyboards of Palczewski that makes you think of the ending of AFTERGLOW from WIND AND WUTHERING. From there, Mirek Gil lays down one of the most heartwrenching guitar solos I have ever heard. These guys get you to feel the music. It goes right through you.

My personal favorite song is ON THE RUN. As with the rest of the CD, this song is lyrically,musically and compositionally tight... but it's kind of a long one which means more to love.

I can't say that SATELLITE remind me completely of any other band. They are so far removed from the rest of the pack because of the fact that you can't pin them down to any specific influence. There is a bit of GENESIS in them but so very little you might even miss it. They are truly their own creation and do not rely on " aping" the elder statesbands of this exciting and complex genre. This album is living proof that progressive rock can still bring fresh bands and concepts to a table many feel is too full.
