5 stars This album is musical perfection, the absolute peak of progressive music. The only missing part being the warning on the back, saying 'THIS ALBUM MAY BLOW THE MINDS OF YOUNG CHILDREN.' My favourite track of the album is easily 'Air Born', sitting in a dark room and driving to the moon in my little car, closely followed by 'Song Within a Song'. 'Air Born's' bass lines are amazing, not mentioning Ward on the drums! Although Camel are not renowned for their lyrical skill, they make this song so much better.

Being only 15, this music is a very well welcomed change from the 'pop' music, which others of my age would listen to. I have not had the pleasure to listen to mirage, but this makes 'Nude' sound ever more AOR orientated, but does nothing to diminish 'The Snow Goose'. The only downside to this album in my opinion is 'Lunar Sea', but is by no means a poor song and is still worthy of being on this outstanding, timeless album.

This album should not be missed by any prog fan and is highly recommended to newcomers, being the end of an era for Camel, as this is the last album with the original line up. If you like Pink Floyd, you'll love Camel!
