3 stars I've always loved Camel, but The Snow Goose was kind of let down upon first listen and it remains as one of my least favorite albums in the Camel disography. Upon first listen, with tracks full of energy and beautiful melodies like "Rhayader", I had high hopes for this album, but the majority of music here all feels like a boring let-down. The fact that there are no vocals on this album is fine with me (I've always preferred my Camel vocal-less). The great material on Mirage and Moon Madness seems to much more thought out that this, but this mostly is the band's soundtrack affair for a novel titled "The Snow Goose". That whole ordeal caused some controversy within the band, but all that can be forgiven. This basically being an above-average soundtrack with strong progressive leaning and some great melodies thrown in, I'll have to give this a three-star rating, but I would definitely recommend some of their earlier work.
