4 stars This is just very nice album of legendary Camel. First song, Breathless really inspired me, such beautiful vocals just can not be sung again. Coming to the middle of record, music becomes more and more »funky« and this feeling raises the most in, very nice, canterbery- like song Down on the Farm. Latimer plays nice flute parts through whole album, but the guitar solo on dance oriented song Summer Lightening has killed me. What a sound of his guitar! Just excelent... One is not able to consider the album as masterpiece between all great symphonic prog albums, but this one is also enjoyable to hear. Too many minutes of album sound like created to mainstream, and, probably simpler, than other Camel's music before this. I didn't like the drums, but not every piece of good progressive music need to have virtuosic drumming. For any new Camel fans, may this be not the best start, but it just should not be avoided.
