5 stars After a masterpiece, Mirage (1974), Camel did want to do a conceptual album about the book of Paul Gallico, The Snow Goose, but they didn't get the approval of Paul, so changed the name of the album for "Music Inspired By: The Snow Goose" and did an instrumental work. Even with trouble, they did a lovely and accessible album, with every instrument played softly and giving the notion of space. I will not review this piece by piece, because it must be listened as a whole. Well, the album is soft as an atom, with slow and soft keyboards/guitars, great percussion, consistent bass and awesome flute work. Every track follows the same premise of "soft songs", and the highlights are "Rhayader", "Rhayader Goes to Town", "The Snow Goose", "Flight Of The Snow Goose" and "La Princesse Perdue". Don't be afraid for the lack of vocals (sorry Latimer, but the vocals aren't, by far, the best part of the band), It's a great work and every progressive rock lover must listen to this masterpiece.
Catalani | 5/5 |
