5 stars Another unique Camel album, full of a nostalgic Irish spirit by lyrics, and brilliantly reflected in the music. About the artistic quality of Latimer as a guitarist, I have no words to tell. Every sound that comes out of his guitar is appropriate, never sounds shrill or out of time or place. The same applies to the parts of flute, though brief here.

It is a quiet work, mostly smooth, but never dull or simplistic. As always highlights the work of Colin Bass in bass guitar, and vocals. Mickey Simmonds also makes a strong collaboration. And orchestrated parts are timely, and add feeling and strength to the pieces.

The strongest songs are Watching the Bobbins and Coming of Age. Are also excellent Harbour of Tears, Send Home the Slates, and the beautiful Eyes of Ireland; mostly acoustic songs. Running From Paradise and The Hour Candle are also recommended.

Nothing is out of place in this masterpiece.
