1967/ 1976
3 stars 'Presure Point' or 'Breaking Point'? Oh, no... This is Camel live in concert! Or maybe... Andy Latimer and friends (Peter Bardens is only a guest...).

That sure Progressive in 1984 was not a popular musical genre is note but that Camel was a big band is a good thing. Certainly 'Pressure Point' is a good live album but sure not perfect. The magic is present but, in my opinion, with not great atmospheres.

In my mind 'Pressure Point', 'West Berlin', 'Wait' and 'Rhayader' and 'Rhayader Goes To Town' are the best songs, each one with its soul and its atmosphere. Also if without conquer my heart. Then both 'Rhayader' are infinitely less beautiful that in the origin.

So 'Pessure Point' is a good live album. But nothing more.

1967/ 1976 | 3/5 |
