4 stars In retrospect, particularly after listening to CARAVAN, my evaluation of CAMEL dropped a bit, although I never considered them a first-class prog. It is basically a continuation, not very original one, of the Canterbury style prog, with nice and melodic songs with pleasant guitar, organ and synth solos, but nothing jaw-dropping. "Mirage" is pwerhaps their best album from the 1970s and compositions "Nimrodel" and "Lady Fantasy" can be recommended as top-prog musicianship, but even they are not flawless. Lack of inspiration CAMEL obviously knows how to compensate with hypnotic and pleasant solos. Highly enjoyable album of the mediocre band, but recommended to most prog collectors.
