Faithful Satellite combines all of the qualities you would expect from the Sorrows – eclectic roots instrumentation…providing an organic warm sound that is so captivating…the songs are some of Joe and Nick Smith’s best…expect to see this on many critics best of the year list  Steve Britt Rhythms Mag Sept/Oct

Camilleri simply continues to do one thing: churn out quality music…thealbum showcases a stellar line-up…these guys can play anything, and Faithful Satellite traverses bluegrass, blues, rockabilly, reggae, rock, gospel and soul Jeff Jenkins Stack Magazine

….a record that traverses the American canon with zestful joy instead of faithful appropriation… Faithful Satellite is a reminder that Camilleri and his bandmates were the gateway drug for roots music aficionados in this country  Craig Mathieson The Age EG

It’s difficult to fault an album that is as diverse as this one… there is enough space within the tracks to allow them to be appreciated by new fans as well, both in terms of lyrical quality and superb musicianship… this classic Australian band are not through sharing their musical gifts with the world just yet. Jackie Smith AMNPlify

a seamless album, reinterpreting blues and soul without losing sight of the high-octane rock. They have little to do with the rest of musical proposals that relate to his native Australia. And that makes them a rara avis (rare bird)….full of personality…drunken freedom…luminously excelsos. Ruta66 Magazine Spain
