5 stars This album can only lose to "Mirage" as the best work of Camel. "The Snow Goose" is a unique case in the discography of the band: it is entirely instrumental, except for some female vocals that "echoes" from the album and the male vocias in "Migration".

This is for me the pinnacle of creative Bardens on keyboards: synthesizers unlike its somewhat annoying the other albums (especially "Mirage" and "Moonmadaness"), here it uses more organs and keyboards base.Are wonderful orchestral track in the penultimate "La Princesse Perdue" (playing the oboe on the album is fantastic), and flute Latimer donīt disapointing.He, incidentally, is the man of the album: Beyond the flute, he played a magnificent role with his guitar, performing great solos, as the title track (my favorite here), which are often quite Floydian, but most are clearly unique.

4.5 stars rounded up.The second best album of the Camel.
