4 stars Camel's fourth studio album and also, their last one with the original line-up. The sound of the album is slightly different if you compare it to their last album The Snow Goose. Moonmadness isn't as complex as its predecessor is even if this is a complete progressive rock album too. The album has a bit of a jazz fusion sound in some points as well.

All of the songs are more or less entertaining and you can't find any fillers here. The longer tracks like "Song within a Song", "Lunar Sea" and the single choice of the album "Another Night" represents the strongest material in here. But I have to mention the short "Spirit of the Water" as well since it's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.

Four stars feels like an accurate rating for Moonmadness. Very solid collection of progressive rock music but still something is missing. Something that differs perfect albums from great albums. Moonmadness is a great album there's no doubt about that.
