3 stars This record and the following studio releases certainly reveal a more mature CAMEL, with music that is thought provoking as well as emotional. I agree with "hibou" that after listening to this album I feel like I would after watching a movie. Listening to the fears and hopes of the people who lived in America at that time of history (based on the novel "The Grapes Of Wrath).

Some of my favourite songs are "Go West", a song that I can't get out of my head, featuring gentle vocals and piano, a song of hope. "Rose Of Sharon" features male and female vocals and a nice guitar melody. "End Of The Line" is a mellow tune with a tasteful guitar solo and guitar throughout, a very inspiring song. The last half of the record is all instrumental, check out "Storm Clouds" and the next song "Cotton Camp", this is where Andy Latimer shines, with some amazing guitar playing.

I guess "Dust" is about the reality, and where the fear springs from, and "Dreams" is all about hope isn't it ?
