Satellite - Nostalgia (2009)
The fourth and final album from this Polish band.
The band was a quintet with a lineup of bass, drums, keyboards, guitars and vocals.
Satellite developed out of the fathers of Polish neo-prog; Collage. And they released four albums and a DVD before they too split up.
All albums are solid neo-prog albums. Some are even a lot better than good.
Satellite was in other words a great band.
Nostalgia follows the Polish neo-prog tradition... or perhaps even establishing the Polish neo-prog tradition and sound.
There are a lot of melancholic melodic neo-prog here. Most of it is also soaring majestic and symphonic. The original version has seven songs ranging from seven to ten minutes each.
In other words, each song has plenty of space to work in.
And work they do.
Not all here is great and there is a couple of songs who falls a bit short. Nevertheless, this is a good album and one every neo-prog fan should check out.
