4 stars The first Camel album is certainly a classic along the lines of Moonmadness, The Snow Goose and Mirage. More of a traditional Canaterbury sound with a bit of a Deep Purple feel. It can be compared to first Caravan album on the basis that it's more embrionic and less symphonic. This is Camel at their most raw. The wordless back-up vocals are already present a la Snow Goose. Peter Bardens is tres heavy on the organ, probably the heaviest you'll hear of him on record. Also present is the mellotron, which rarely appeared on subsequent Camel albums. For interst in Camel music...start here. Recommended.
