5 stars This review is not of the bonus tracks, only of the main songs.

As with many people, I was more than astounded with this recording. It is Camel's best work, with a harder edge than their other two memorable albums which I personally prefer. It's quite simply a master workings of symphonic rock.

The better tracks on the album are Nimrodel - with its superb changes in rhythm and keyboard work, Freefall - the complex side of Camel, yet still remaining melodic, and finally Lady Fantasy - no need for description here, other than this: Camel's greatest song ever. All of these songs add to a splendid 10/10 for me. The remaining two are 9/10.

To this day, the album abides as a very favourite album of mine. A tad better than moonmadness IMO. Recommended to Yes, Genesis and Flower Kings fans out there.
