3 stars A sign of things to come.

This album has far more in common with their 90's output than anything from the 70's. Though I'd say the overall sound is certainly grounded in the late 70's, early 80's. Like their later concepts works, I find that I enjoy the instrumentals more than the vocal numbers. This is especially true here, where the vocal numbers are even a bit irritating to my ears (unlike say, Dust and Dreams, where they are more enjoyable, even though the instrumental tracks are still the highlights). The album is mostly instrumental however, so the vocal tracks don't really hurt it.

There is some quite good material here, and the live album that would surface later (On the Road 1981) would showcase this better than the studio album. Still, all in all, a solid Camel album but one you should get to later in your discovery of this band if you really like their stuff. 3 solid stars.
