3 stars The most recent Camel studio album has already been out for almost a full decade?! Wow.

Well, A Nod And A Wind is a very poetic Camel album. It's very soft and delicate, and is super polished sounding. This album only seems to have very faint touches of the Canterbury and symphonic qualities that made Camel stand out so much, opting for a much more new-age sort of sound, although this is even quite good for new-age. This album also features much more vocals that what I'm generally used to with Camel, and I've always preferred them instrumentally.

I'm not entirely sure what to compare the music to, but the music here sounds more like a Canterbury influenced version of early Yes rather than classic Camel, but by today's standards this is actually pretty good music. If you love Camel and have aged into a seasoned gentleman, then this new-age contemporary laid back Camel album is most likely something you might enjoy.
