4 stars The final Camel album to feature Andy Ward is a strong return to form after the awkward transitional albums from Rain Dances to I Can See Your House From Here. Though Latimer finally succeeds in updating and streamlining the classic Camel sound, don't let the short song lengths fool you - the album flows from track to track wonderfully, creating a wonderful instrumental-heavy concept album in the tradition of the Snow Goose (with a few lyrics here and there to shed a bit of light on the concept).

With Andy's guitar work at points reminiscent of the sort of material Steve Hackett was unleashing on his own solo albums at around the same time, Nude shares with the likes of those albums a fascinating position as a transition point between the symphonic styles of the golden age of prog and the accessible, melodic approach of the upcoming neo-prog acts. It's also a great little piece of symphonic prog from a time when the genre had few stalwart champions.

Warthur | 4/5 |
