3 stars Not quite on par with chef d'oeuvre Mirage. The dynamic is different, but still equilibrated. While Mirage was hard-rocking, epic and fantasy flavored, Moonmadness is...well...showing affection for the moon?

Without the shadow of a doubt, this record will please you at night. The feel is soft, the albums takes it time to build and maintain a 'cosmic' feel. Nice attempt. Magnificent moogs in Aristillus is a great entrance. Spirit of the water has a nice rainy day feeling that's comforting and warming anyhow. Air born's Camel at his best. Great guitar line and the way the song gets back to where it started really hits the spot.

Too bad the album was the last good one with the fabulous foursome that was Camel in his early and too short years. What is Latimer without Ferguson or Bardens? Not quite the same. More atmospheric than the Snow Goose (which is something), I really get the feeling to be on the moon, walking slowly and looking at the earth.

Because giants steps are what you take, walking on the moon,I hope my leg don't break, walking on the man, what was that?
