4 stars The snow goose was the first camel album i bought[cd] from a mail order company selling second hand cds and i saw it cheap and bought it after i watched the top ten prog program[channel 4 uk],with every song here on great form a really good listen,this album has like a late night relaxing feeling to it to me,how it starts with The Great Marsh is great how it starts really quiet gets volume up as it goes like and how then it goes into rhayader is great,and rhayader goes to town starts with a great guitar and this song i just enjoy everytime,sanctuary is a really calm song with nice relaxing guitar and keyboards really great to hear and relax to,the snow goose song i love the guitar here and the organ to[this reminds me a little of the shadows a little like the sound of the guitar],this is really a great song.friendship is a pete bardens song which it sounds and is short but really nice another good song,migration has like vocals with it the first so far like dooing and dahing kind of sound[i cant explain any other way and with calm drumming to.rhayader alone sound like another bardens song and is calm and relaxing again really nice.flight of the snow goose has guitar in this and more drumming and all sounds good here every member of camel on fine form the drumming is not loud but sounds good like,and the guitar here is more of the song really.preparation is really calm and i love the vocal part here sounds a little ghostly like a old hammer horror film with a ghostly likeoohing and ahhing,i love this.dunkirk with organ [calm at start] and occassional guitar bit for little,this is really nice again with the organ having more of lead role but the guitar does has more of later role and when it does it just sounds good this is great stuff with every member on great form great sounding prog.epitaph sounding like preparation sound with nice background pinging sound.fritha alone with a really nice piano playing calm and quiet really princesse perdue been the loudest song on album and gets calm in places for few seconds and when the keyboards play it sounds great so the guitar comes in and with a same playing song in bits as an earlier song called snow goose later on in song and nice to here playing again,the great marsh ends the album like the same how it started just fades out,and sounds great if you play album straight away after to,same like how pink floyds wall starts and ends like kind of,this album is a really nice great listen really relaxing and quiet like,if you fancy a relaxing quiet album now this is it,sounds great at night with a lamp on with a coal fire burning i reckon[i just wish i had a coal fire] its got that feeling to me,a nice listen,mostly instrumental but thats not a bad thing.4 stars.
