5 stars Let me start by saying that "The Snow Goose" is my favorite Camel album. Although I thoroughly enjoy both "Mirage" and "Moonmadness" as well as bits of other albums, it really has to be "The Snow Goose", and here's why: This is the album where the band shines brightest in every aspect of their art and craft. It is also the longest and most elaborate suite of songs the band has ever released. Aside from the length and scope of the album, the style is also unique among Camel albums, as it removes nearly all the vocals and adds a distinct Canterbury element only faintly present on previous and future releases. I am a huge fan of the Canterbury sound and it delights me to hear it combined with Camel's brand of symphonic rock. There are no weak songs here, as every passage is absolutely fitting and sets up the next quite well. This makes for an album that flows seamlessly, but includes many songs that stand alone excellently.

9/10 - For fans of Canterbury scene prog, symphonic rock, and long pieces with lots of movements.

The Blue Ghost | 5/5 |
