4 stars "Breathless" has pop accessible songs, but it is never a simple album: the songs are loaded and subtle. Because of Richard Sinclair on bass and on some lead vocals, it can sound like CARAVAN ("Down on the Farm"). There are some very good flute parts. "Echoes" has beautiful modern keyboards patterns, and there is on the second half part a very catchy and swinging rythmic patterns (the bass surrounded by all other instruments). The bass can be very rythmic. Pete Barden's keyboards are really good, varied and elaborated. The electric guitars are well played. A couples of songs are ordinary ("You Make Me Smile"). "The Sleeper" keeps the same good old CAMEL's style ("Moonmadness"). A colorful and alive album.
