5 stars This is 5-star CAMEL !

As of now, the rating of this album on this site is 3.01 which draws my attention. Actually, I can understand why this album was not appreciated when it was released, but if you listen now, I believe that many prog fans will like the sound as it has a good balance between traditional or original CAMEL taste and new path where the band proceeded later

"Breathless" - excellent pop melody and warmful voice of Richard Sinclair "Echoes" - needless to say, one of the best 3 songs of the band, true prog classic "Wing and Prayer" - you can feel the "breeze" as if you are walking under sunshine "Down on the farm" - great pop song like Beatles + Caravan "Starlight ride" - you now feel like being under stars and moon "Summer Lightning" - the killer tune of this album, longer guitar solo than expected, great ! "You make me smile" - Rupert Holmes ? nice pop song but keyboard is the prog "The sleeper" - you will be amazed after 1:36 by Brand X like jazz taste, Mel Collins ! "Rainbow's end" - heartwarm ballad, but it makes you desire to re-start the album

As stated above, this is definitely 5-star album

Katsuhisa | 5/5 |
