Prog Reviewer
4 stars This album is very good. It has some "mechanical" sounds, because they maybe programmed some keyboards and drum machines. These things were done in a lot of albums from the eighties. It doesn`t matter, because the quality of the songs is very good. Ton Scherpenzeel is a very good keyboard player, playing in this album some "modern keyboard sounds from the 80s". The lyrics are about people from the divided Berlin in the Cold War Era (written by Susan Hoover). Maybe this makes this album sound dated now. But for me the most interesting thing in this album is the music. My favourite songs from this album are: "Refugee", "Vopos", "Stationary Traveller" and "Long Goodbyes". "Pressure Points", "West Berlin" and "Fingertips" were included in better versions in the "Pressure Points-Camel Live in Concert" album which also was released in 1984. The song "Pressure Points" from that live album is longer than the version included in this "Stationary Traveller"album. This "Stationary Traveller" album was recently re- issued by Camel Productions (see their official website), and it includes a long studio version of "Pressure Points" (included at the end of the CD), plus a song which was rejected by Decca Records and was not included in the original version of this album from 1984.
