4 stars Second best CAMEL to listen in the daytime

As I wrote before, I like prog rock so much that I listen to these music in the daytime and night time, morning througfh mid-night. But, how many prog rock albums do you have that you can listen in the daytime ? "I Can See Your House From Here" of CAMEL is one of such prog albums.

Precisely speaking, this album does not fit in the morning because of their one of the masterpieces "Ice" which fits in the sunset time or evening.

Track 1 "Wait" is a rock tune, like YES plays such a rock tune at live. Keyboard solo from 2:03 is just nice. Slow tempo after 3:30 makes this song a prog rock like YES.

Track 2 "Your Love Is Stranger Than Mine" is a song like being from Breathless album. Sax solo from 2:13 is making this song a nice pop prog.

Track 3 "Eye Of The Strom" is a revisiting to Snow Goose album. Flute sounds lovely.

Track 4 "Who We Are" starts with the beautiful guitars and hear even orchestra plays later. This is like a 7:52 long drama movie.

Track 5 "Survival" is a song to end A-side. This is for the old analog record style of A and B sides.

Track 6 "Hymn To Her" is great song that the band has played live often. Prog rock that nobody can copy yet.

Track 7 "Neon Magic": Please don't go to the next song before listening to the keyboards starting from 1:04. It is not really simple but rather complicated structured pop tune.

Track 8 "Remote Romance": Well, I can accept, but I understand there are many fans who not. Please skip if you want.

Track 9 "Ice": I have been telling my son, "play this song at my funeral". This is one of my best favorites of the prog music. I don't know how many times I have listened, but I never get bored.

Only a pity thing with this album is the artwork and album title, and maybe the 8th track. Given these points, my rating is 4-star, but it is great album I will never throw away.
