4 stars Although ranked by many as a 'classic', Camel's instrumental effort 'The Snow Goose' is a real marmite album. For some, it defined all that is graceful and beautiful about the symphonic-prog sub-genre, showcasing the link between classical and rock with graceful aplomb. For others, however, it is an anaemic reminder of all of Prog's deficiencies and an example of why punk rock came, saw and conquered the late-seventies musical world, as listeners found themselves looking for something meatier to chew on. Whatever your view - and there are many - there is no denying that 'The Snow Goose' features some enchantingly sumptuous moments of instrumental beauty. The lack of vocals can be distracting, but once the listener has adjusted to the style and tone of the interlocking pieces, there are many rewards to be had with the group's now-experiencd line-up combining flawlessly. Lighter than 'Mirage', much more overtly progressive than their self-titled debut and longer and more complex than 'Moonmadness', 'The Snow Goose' is a charming, if slightly self-indulgent addition to this group's impressive catalogue.
