4 stars Boy, did I loved Camel when I bought Mirage. Mirage blew my shoes off with a blast that sented me right through the wall...

Boy was I disappointed by the Snow Goose! And I'm still disappointed. It's almost a curse...I couldn't get into that album. I couldn't see the plot. Usually, I'm capable of seeing through an album, if the artists let you a chance to follow the thread. But The Snow Goose is a good idea with good moments. I mean there is still some good moments with flute and the orchestra that creates a mood that tickle the imagination...but too few of those? This is why Camel never got out of the little league. But what talent underneath. Too bad, the good period of Camel didn't last long. You don't make a living out of records like this one. What I mean, is that the disappointment was caused by the high expectations about the follower of Mirage, my all-time surprise and soft spot. This is NOT Mirage 2, the concept album is applied full blast. My, this is like reading a book in music!

This album is so recommended, I feel ashamed and stupid to not follow the march. I'm glad I kept listening over and over again, then I finally understood what Camel wanted by creating the Snow Goose: being the very best underdogs of all-time.

Camel made a blindfolded job with lots of wishes, but not enough work to satisfy my Mirage cravings.

Vote for Camel for biggest overlooked talent of all-time.
