4 stars Camel's Mirage is an excellent album which I enjoy very much and highly recommend. This classic era prog album would be a good starting point for people just getting into prog.

The instruments used are organ/keyboards, guitar, bass, drums and flute. I like the deep smooth vocals on "The White Rider" and "Lady Fantasy". The varied parts flow well together. Some parts have a relaxed feel. There are fast and heavy parts. In particular "Freefall" is a heavy rock song. "Nimrodel" is dreamy and mysterious. The beginning of "Earthrise" reminds me of a castle with a forest around it. A cool synth bass sound with higher pitched otherworldly echo effects is near the end of "The White Rider". The highlights to me are "Supertwister", "The White Rider" and the "Lady Fantasy" suite.
