4 stars Camel continues to explore the genre of progressive rock with the next release - Moonmadness. In my opinion, after these unique albums like Mirage and The Snow Goose, the band decided to take different way for its career. These two albums explored everything what one progressive rock band could dream for. And honestly Moonmadness doesn't produce the same feeling in me like these two predecessors. The musicianship is just completed and remind me to other albums played in the same slow technique manner - Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here and Dark Side of the Moon and Premiata Forneria Marconi's Stati di immaginazione. But the one big thing that embarrass me is the songwriting. I don't consider the songs to be completed enough and I think this part of the album is far behind the musicianship on the release. I can't forget to mark the last song of the album as the best by far here - Lunar Sea. It is full of surprises and tempo changes. It comprises of irregular time signature - just beautiful. For the song - 5 stars. I consider the album is much weaker than Mirage and The Snow Goose and little weaker than the homonymous Camel album. For the album around 3.75!
