3 stars 3,5 stars really.

The addition of Richard Sinclair on bass (and vocals) and Mel Collins is a promissing change, and it actually works out quite well, for the sound of Camel is richer than before. However a more commercial style change has occured, and the new-commers don't get the room they need for their addition to become an undivided succes.

The songs generally are very well composed, a little more jazzy than before, sometimes reminescent of U.K. (first album) especially the vocal and melody line from Highways Of The Sun reminds me of that.

My favourite songs are the mentioned Highways, Unevensong, the great instrumental One Of these Days I'll Get An Early Night and Skylines is awsome too. Basically no bad songs, and a very entertaining disc.

Certainly not Camel's best work, but a nice enjoyable album every fan should have.
