4 stars The CAMEL of the 80's has always impressed me: a bit progressive, loaded of modern keyboards, clean electric guitar sounds, accessible, addictive, most of those albums are at least very good. The single factor belong to this group. The songs here can be very mellow and ("Selva", "End Peace / Hearts Desire"), rythmic and catchy ("No Easy Answer", "Manic", "Sasquatch").

CAMEL here can definitely be sentimental. Compared to "Nude", it is clear here that the songs are less progressive, but they are more accessible. The songs rather differ from each other. The keyboards are varied and their force resides in the floating mellow parts. The electric guitars are very good with their often clean distortion-free sounds. There are 4 keyboards players here, including Anthony PHILLIPS (ex-GENESIS' guitarist), and this contributes to make varied keyboards sounds. So this record is keyboards and electric guitar oriented, in a simple, sentimental an accessible way.
