5 stars Featured from a novell of Paul Gaulish (with which the have some little problems in future ), "The snow goose" narrates the story of a goose of snows and its friendship with the Man of a beacon. Music is in the full Camel style, rich of extremely emotional and evocative passages (Rhayader, Fritha halo, princesse perdue), frank and lively (the Frienship, The flight of snow goose), mysterious and distressing (Preparation, Dunkirk). The vocal parts, from always little present in the album of the Camel, vanish here without that however the listener of it perceives the absence, captured from beutifull notes of the guitar of Latimer and the plan of Bardens. Obvious that it is being spoken about a masterpices about the progressive. The entire work maintains in all the duration an incredible poetry. Music is I narrating of the history, history that behind the aforesaid friendship between the goose and the guardiano, hides the tragic facts of withdrawn to Dunkerque of the troops the Anglo- French during the second world war. Opener "the The great the Marshes", with a lot of backs of gulls, the flaute wonderful of Andy in "Rhayader", the struggente plan of Peter Bardens in "Fritha halo", are the essence of the particular and most original job of a band that she has known to create and to maintain in the years one simple and only style.
