3 stars Ok it was the period regarding the issue of "A Stationary Traveller" and this latter perhaps was the most AOR-oriented album by Camel; nevertheless you can find also a pretty version of "Rhayader"/"Rhayader goes to town", taken from "The Snow Goose", plus an interesting short instrumental -"Sasquatch"- always from "A Stationary.", without forgetting another hit-single of that time - entitled "Wait"- directly from "I can see your house from here" (another AOR album.): this pleasant song at the end contained such a fine keyboard solo performed in a Duo and probably it was the most convincing episode regarding of all their "commercial" albums. Moreover I appreciate the arpeggios at the Prophet by Scherpenzeel (ex Kajak), as well as his skill, perfectly fitted into the powerful style by Latimer: their approach was unforgettable, especially when They alternate the light progressive songs with some melodic/easier breaks-through, always in a remarkable manner.in particular the final section was well represented by a classic mini-suite like "Lady Fantasy", even though the execution of something else (for instance "Ice") should have been more comfortable, talking about their most inspiring tunes to be inserted into their programme.never mind cause it's a minor question after all: the present live was powerful anyway, especially if you regard of the early eighties and being one of the best sessions (a few lives by Rush and Asia perhaps were aligned to it.); even though I'm still waiting for my personal re-mastered version of "Pressure Point" .However, in spite of being not equal for example to the incomparable double live album entitled "A Live Record", it can complete the best discography from Camel.try it at home, also in the video format, but for instance "A Coming of Age" and the already mentioned "A Live Record" are much better than this "Pressure Points"...make your own choice as usual!!
