2 stars Last album that still features founder member Peter Bardens on keyboards. Although it contains some fine songs, it is also quite different from the sound Camel created and ultimately influenced so many people. Only Echoes does reflect their glorious past and its the CDs best track. No wonder many fans remember this album solely by this tune. Unfortunately it cant really save the whole album. The title track is a good pop song, as are others here and there. Some are downright embarrassing (`Down On The Farm`) . And Summer Lightning is too much a disco track: not bad, it has a good melody and guitar solo, but again does not sound like Camel at all.

Breathless is a mixed bag that is partially saved by the great musicianship of all members involved. If you like pop music youll probably enjoy this album. For the prog fan Id suggest to look somewhere else.

Final rating: 2,5 stars.
