4 stars Camel's first album is surprisingly good quality compared to what they did after Moonmadness. The songs are shorter but they remain pure Camel product. The classic line-up is giving all it can; hard to find a 'weak' song on the album. The remaster album has a clear, crisp sound, giving Andy Ward's drumming full appreciation. A definite winner with not much singing (kinda good) and could get more keyboard though. The songs are less 'dreamy' than Mirage, so expect less replay value and no long epics. The jazzy approach is for sure a Canterbury influence and, who could whine about crafty songs?

Low chances to regret the buying; Camel's oldest albums are safe bets to invest money on, remaining the high improbability of so much talent concentrated in one band. And yet, it did exist for a short period of time. *sigh*
