4 stars An incredible instrumental album by Camel. All of the songs here are short and sweet, which means that there is no filler. It features awesome flute work (especially on Rhayader), great guitar work (especially with the solos, very Gilmour-esque), great keyboard work that really sets the mood for each track, and great bass and drum work that really shape the album. Each song has a completely different sound and approach to it, but there are many recurring themes throughout the music. My favorite tracks at the moment are Dunkirk and the reprise of The Great Marsh. The latter having a dark and murky feel to it, and Dunkirk having a grand and epic feel. Overall, this is one of Camel's best albums. I highly recommend it. 4.5/5.
