4 stars By means of this mature album "Camel" demonstrate their talent and good ideas as well for the first time... of course a "melodic prog band" They are, never tiring and sometimes very captivating (listen to the splendid "Supertwister", a jewel within the so called "light style of Canterbury") and for this reason -during this phase. They already were talented. Nevertheless they never performed too many bombastic solos, except on some tasteful solos by Mini-Moog synthesizers and good music passages characterized by a simple choice of themes and a remarkable variety in dynamics as well in some circumstances!

The last mini-suite "Lady Fantasy" is an ever-green; instead "Earthrise" shows the best style regarding both the technique of the unforgettable Peter Bardens and the simple harmonic solutions of Andy Latimer at his guitar, enriched with a good range of effects!! This is not the best album by CAMEL but naturally is one of the most famous and powerful works as well...!

Recommended anyway!!
