4 stars "Snow Goose" is a very touching piece of art that seems to sound better and more beautiful every time I hear it. It is a tightly structured instrumental that was inspired by Paul Gallico's novel of the same name. There's an excellent mixture of both orchestral and rock instrumentation.

The Snow Goose is in a similar vein to Camel's "Nude" album as the music follows a storyline and the musical style is also soft prog although this album is a lot more symphonic. It's evocative and shines with gracefulness throughout. There are some vocal parts but no lyrics. The female vocals on the track "Preparation" are rather haunting. The most memorable pieces are probably "Rhayader" and "The Snow Goose" but I've slowly come to love the whole of this album very much.

I think this is remarkable, wonderful music. This is an album that may require patience but it is rewarding. This is the kind of Camel I love the best and is among my favourites by the band. Highly recommended. Four and a half stars.
