2 stars 2.4/5.0Another concept album, and not a bad one! This one is about the drought and the severe depression in the 30s which affected american farmers. There are some highlights on this album, with great solos (I particularly like the one on "Cotton camp" even if this is only a fading rememberance of what Camel's solos used to be 15 years before). Unfortunately, the album lacks the intensity or emotion which are Camel trademark. That said, this is still an improvement on their last studio album but still this is closer to pop music or new age than to prog. This one is half-way between a "collector/ fan only" and a "good, but not essential" album. 2.4/5.0
