5 stars Usually I don't like to review CDs that so many people have already said it all about it. But this was a special case in my life. I didn't know the band Collage before and I just happened to stumble on this CD in January 2004. After few seconds listening to it I bought it thinking it might be what it turned out: the album of that year and one of my all time favourites. Rarely I got a CD that captivated me this way: from beginning to end it was a pleasure to hear. 70 minutes of pure joy. No wonder Satellite became so big in such a short period of time.

Nowadays I see Satellite as natural progression of the band Collage. No wonder: 3 of the latter' s key members are featured in Satellite, including the genius drummer\songwriter Wojtek Szadkowski, the amazing keyboardist Krzyek Palczewski and excellent singer Robert Amirian. Also a fourth ex Collage member, guitarrist Mirek Gil, is featured on some tracks. Still the band's sound is one step ahead and it's simply fantastic how they use some dreaded (by purists progheads) sequencers and electronic drums in the progressive context

While the music is definitely neo prog, it is also quite unique and it's hard to tell where is influence come from (aside from the obvious Collage connection). Nevertheless is one of those rare CDs that it is at the same time accessible and innovative, original and pleasant. A classic CD that will please not only neo prog lovers, but anyone who likes good music in general. Highly recommended!
