5 stars This is one of that prog-albums you have to listen entire to understand the wonderful project by Camel. Listening one or two songs you can't feel the beauty of the songs, you have to listen from "The Great Marsh" until "The Great Marsh". And learn about the Rhayander's sad story told by the colleague Australian in review above. So you will understand why the birds sing by many songs: in the great marsh, keyboards in the beginning of the snow goose, fagote on friendship. The highest moments to me are: Rhayader/Rhayader Goes To Town; The Snow Goose; Flight Of The Snow Goose/Preparation/Dunkirk and naturally La Princesse Perdue. But I can't forget the witty Migration, the misterious Great Marsh, the cool Friendship, the sad Fritha Alone and others. The album goes to the end like Supper's ready (Genesis) and Close to the Edge (Yes) remembering the main themes. So tighten your belts to the amazing finale: The snow goose reprise with mellotron and orchestra... you just want to cry! Especially if you know what the story is about. Of course this albums deserves five stars! It's better than Mirage and Moonmadness to me.
