4 stars A very strong debut by one of the most underrated bands of the 70īs. This album is rarely talked about, but it is easily up to his three elder (and more famous) brothers. Ok, the guitar work here is less prominient then on future releases, but it shines anyway. Bardens on the other side leaves no stone unturned: his keyboards are brilliant thru the whole album. Bass and drums are excellent as ever and the only truly weak part are the vocals. Donīt get me wrong, they are not bad at all, but not par to their stunning instrumental parts (except maybe on Never Let Go, one of their best songs ever). From the get go it was clear that Camel had a tremendous chemestry and drive that almost prescinded of vocals at all (which, by the way, they actually did on the marvelous The Snowgoose).

With a decent production and not a single bad track or filler, Camel stood the test of time with honours. Definitly one of the īmagnificent fourīdone by this outstanding band in a time that there were so many outstanding bands around. A must have for any prog fan. Highly recommended.
