5 stars With their second album, Camel begins to develop their own distinctive sound, highlighted by the group's liquid, intricate rhythms and the wonderful, unpredictable instrumental exchanges by keyboardist Peter Bardens and guitarist Andy Latimer.Anyway, this album is absolutely superb.

1. Freefall - Lots of rich instrumental passages and catchy vocal parts.4,5/5 2. Supertwister - Extremely nice and mellow. Great flute work,of Andy Latimer .5/5 3. Nimrodel/The Procession/The White Rider - A masterful song with lots of breaks, strong melodies and a very impressive and powerful performance from the whole band,and featured some of Bardens' best playing ever. This track is based on Tolkien's trilogy "Lord of the Rings". The White Rider was the magician Gandalf, and Nimrodel is the name of the lake that goes through the forest of Lorien, the land of the Elves, according to the Tolkien myth. 5/5

4. Earthrise - One of the most energetic instrumental-number they ever did. Very emotive. 4/5

5. Lady Fantasy: Encounter/Smiles for You/Lady Fantasy - This track is a 12-minute epic,presents the forthcoming tendency toward long, complicated and emotional pieces. I love it. 5/5

4,5+5+5+4+5 = 23,5

23,5 : 5 = 4,7

Essential - A Masterpiece of Progressive Music

Note - You can try pulling a gag with the Mirage tape cassette: Try offering it as a cigarettes pack to someone.It realy works.
