2 stars For those who are not familiar with Camel's repertoire, The Single Factor is definitely not the proper album to start with. But still this is not so bad album if one has in mind the existing musical trends in the early eighties, but also the circumstances in which the album was made. Andy Latimer was practically without the band, he was not in the mood of making another studio album, but due to the contract with the Decca record he was obliged to do it. The result was a collection of short individual tracks, an album which mostly resembles their 1979 studio effort I Can See Your House From Here, with almost no progressive content in it, but still with some nice songs such as Camelogue, A Heart's Desire/End Peace and Lullaby. There are too many pop-rock elements in this album, but Camel still managed to preserve its basic profile and integrity.
