4 stars A mix between Focus, Ekseption, Genesis and Moody Blues... A great band...: Camel!

Because yes, 'Camel', debut album of Camel, is a great album in the vein of a strange mix between the mentiones band. In various percentage depending on the songs but sure with great personality and magic. In my opinion Camel are good because essentials, with great atmospheres and melodies, with not complicated songs and with a great writing style. Also the production is good, as the technique.

Not explosive as Genesis or Rock as Ekseption but with Focus on Atmospheres and Moody Blus on melody Camel delivers a debut album full and powerful, without many of the mistakes made by other bands. Almost all instrumental 'Camel' is an album without major peaks but really compact and superior to the media.

But if this review reflect the power and the magic of 'Camel' is because 'Camel' is this: a magical album by a magical band.

1967/ 1976 | 4/5 |
