5 stars A masterpiece of instrumental prog.

The Snow Goose is CAMEL's best album and one of the best prog albums of all time, it features extremely cohesive symphonic songwriting, strong melody and impeccable attention to detail, it's also very self contained and memorable with a lot of great moments. The Snow Goose is quite an upbeat and at times silly album (except for the beginning and end).

The album is full of highlights as I said before but Rhayader Goes to town is one of the standout tracks, it's triumphant and powerful, Andy Latimer's guitar is on fire here too. Dunkirk is another real strong point with it's ominous marching beat leading into a wailing slide guitar solo with the drums a real strength here.

The Snow Goose is an essential addition to any symphonic prog collection, it has very strong varied songwriting and a great overall theme.
