4 stars This is an excelent work of neoclassicism: bright musical effort of Camel in eighties, when almost all musicians with progressive approach have buried their musical past. There are some parts on album close being repetitive, but it still does not ruin musical idea of this piece of music. It clearly has a concept, and like most albums of Camel, this is not fulfilled with vocals, which makes it more melodically and lets listener to even feel it as an ambient work. I think that this work is much underrated, and not much popular, but it does not lack sensitivity, beauty, images, melodies, complexity. After all, I see it as quite complex music, and most of all emotive. I like meeting of Latimer with folk influences of Irish music, where his beautifully sounding flute meets emotive singing-like virtuoso guitar.

This music is very sensual, and sometimes it even makes me sad, somehow. This is not for any of you who get sleepy listening to some soft, atmospheric music, but, it is close being masterpiece, because of its beautiful orchestration and fluid, sensual guitar, fine concept, and lots of fresh ideas.
