1 stars OK, I will give 1,5 stars only (but not two!) because "Ice" is sort of listenable instrumental that does not urge me to push the stop button on my player. But the rest of this album does exactly that! I don't see any point in making music like this one, on this pathetic record. One thing is wishing to make commercial or more accessible music to a wider audience; the other is to make bad music - and "I Can See Your House" IS the bad music. This is totally negligable album in CAMEL catalogue and it marks the end of the 1970s line- up of the band. Bardens and Sinclair are gone and it is clear that they somehow had kept the sound alltogether on the previous two, already mediocre, albums. Now, the introduction of New Wave-influenced sound with synthetic drums, unnecessary synthesizers and shallow songwriting only helped CAMEL sink to the bottom of prog rock. And they were largely to stay there until the 1990s...
