5 stars The Snow Goose is a fantastical journey of prog that proves you don't need lyrics to tell a story. The emotion of the music pushes the story along and lets the listener interpret it in their own way. Camel were very ambitious here but pulled off something very special. The music contains majestic moments, from rock driven solos to sad mellow pieces, and travels through different emotions, using reprisals here and there. The songs can't be listened to individually; it all links up as a whole, like watching a movie. Being that this is the case Camel have done well to structure the album and make it flow perfectly. I couldn't pick out favourite songs because they're all great, but La Princesse Perdue really stands out as something special.

Only the song titles provide any degree of actual story and so it leaves you to figure out the rest using the music and your imagination (unless you read the story of which this album is based on). The Snow Goose is very unique and will leave you wanting more.

I can't fault this album. 5 stars
