3 stars Now, what a disappointment... After some time thinking about purchasing an album from Camel, I decided it was time and went to a little boutique near my house. Only one Camel album was available: The Snow Goose. I was not that happy, because I am used to start buying albums from an artist with the first, and going from there. But anyways, I went home, started listening to the album, and was very impressed with first three songs, especially the solo on Rhayader goes to town, wich is incredibly good. After this those first three songs, the mood semms to change, and the songs, weaker. Sanctuary is a somewhat beautiful number, but after a few listens, it tends to get boring. Same thing on Fritha, but I adore the bass on that song. Simple, but is works well. The Snow Goose is an ok song, but nothing special. Th rest of the album is mostly equal , and does not stand out. An interesting album, but it does not tend to grow on you, and left me with a disappointment, as I tought Camel would be as good as other prog greats. But I finally decided I wasgoing to buy other albums from them to see what they were like. 3/5
