Satellite – Evening Dreams (DVD-Video Concert)


Picture: C+     Sound: B-     Extras: C+     Concert: C+



Yet another band goes to DVD with a concert and this time, it is Satellite, an obscure band that sounds like a later generation Emerson, Lake & Palmer without the totals technical prowess or originality.  That does not mean the roughly 90 minutes is bad, just a lighter version of more memorable work.  To give you an idea of the throwback to concept albums and Progressive Rock (now called Prog Rock by those who hate it) this bad aspires to be, look at these titles:


1)     Never Never

2)     Evening Games

3)     Fight

4)     Evening Wind

5)     Beautiful World

6)     Evening Overture

7)     Children

8)     A Street Between Sunrise & Sunset

9)     Evening Games



Where’s The Alan Parsons Project when you need them most?  Only check in if you really like this kind of music.  The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is softer than expected and the color is slightly off as well throughout.  The Dolby Digital 5.1 mix has some surrounds, but is nothing extraordinary.  Extras include weblinks, stills, text biography & discography and interview with the band members.  Not bad, but nothing to get too excited about.
