1 stars If Nude hinted at the possibility for a new series of good Camel albums, this one crashed even the lowest expectations. It's not much worse then Breathless but the rising quality curve since that album had everybody's hopes up for more.

Some songs like You Are The One start with strong verses but are entirely ruined by blatantly commercial and cheesy choruses. Most songs are cheesy all the way through. There are moments like Selva that are as good as Twin Peaks soundtrack would be but that do not offer much we didn't hear yet from Camel.

There's one song I really like though and that's Camelogue, it's equally commercial as anything else but if this album wanted to be pop music then at least it was successful with this track. The following album would accomplish what I think they wanted to achieve here. Easily Camel's worst.
