5 stars At first I found Moonmadness to be a bit blah- somewhere between space-rock, symphonic rock, and ambient, and it just didn't work for me. However, one day, it just started to click- all of Moonmadness suddenly just "worked", and I loved the album. MM is peaceful, dreamy music in typical Camel vein, except it's even deeper and more diverse sonically than Mirage, but lacks some of the rocking power of it's earlier companion- that's not to say that Moonmadness is limp or in any way lacking, because it contains it's share of burly guitar parts- however, they are instead smooth and serene as midnight. Moonmadness should appeal to any fan of calm and relaxing symphonic rock, and is one of the best recordings from one of the essential yet lesser-known prog bands. I think that it deserves five stars, because there's so much depth and interest in this piece of work.
