A remarkable album that confirms their flexibilty and talent for making energetic, expressive, poignant music. Anathema are a special band, determined not to stagnate, and distant satellites is yet another divine release.

Ebbing and flowing, brooding and building the album’s structural dynamics are masterfully balanced, songcraft is tightened and the band’s overflowing musical passion gets ever more complelling and infectious.
