4 stars A nice work and an underrated album! I own a lot of Camel albums in my progressive collection and I must say that Nude is one of the most played in my house. First of all, it's a soft progressive work with an interesting point of view. Latimer and co has done here a special album, a little bit different form the previous albums, a concept album about a soldier left on an island and then brought home after a few years of isolation. The music is very refreshing and relaxing. The album begins with City Life, a very straight introducing into the atmosphere. After a short interlude called Nude, Drafted follows to complete the first part of the album. The 2nd part of the album seems to turn into an instrumental one, some of songs reminding me of short ambient tracks like Tangerine Dream or Porcupine Tree - the best part of the album, perhaps uncommon to the music of the band. The end of the album contains a superb progressive song called Lies, with a very nice guitar interfering. Overall, Nude is a high-quality work made by this famous english band in the beginning of the 80's, showing a soft part of symphonic progressive- not to miss! Recommended!
