4 stars Am I listening to Camel? Well, there's certainly enough here to deceive you that it is. Many a reviewer point that out and I agree. On the other hand I would like to express my view that besides the Camel- infused music there's enough originality to make this album a truly exciting, beautiful, enjoyable listen, or indeed listens. Asia Minor delivers in 1981 a collection of songs by all standards dated when released. It's certainly not in the time, it's by no means neo-prog. I'd classify it as late seventies symphonic in the vein of (guess who?) Camel circa "Nude". But sometimes dated means nothing when concerning the quality. Asia Minors "Between flesh..." is a fantastic journey through beuatiful symphonic prog of the best kind. Sweeping, dreamy and full of nice changes in tempo and mood. The last song is a short but excellent, abrupt ending to this masterful release. It's true that the singer has a voice of special qualities. I can't decide what I think about it. Is he good or simply not that good? Actually, I think his voice is a part of the whole picture. Still... Anyway, it's a great album and I truly recommend it!
