Review by ZowieZiggy
2 stars Due to lots of problem encountered with the difficulties of signing a contract with a record company (more details available in my review for "Dust and Dreams"), Camel was not productive for more than six years at the time (1991) but was soon going to deliver a new studio album. I guess that this was the kick to release this compilation : introduce the band to a new database of potential fans.

IMO, they completely failed.

First because I believe that a chronological sequence would have presented this work in a more understandable way to their attention. But most than everything, the tracklist is secondhand numbers for most of them.

We even get for the third time in a row on a compilation the track "Freefall" (which I don't like very much). Very few real good numbers : some title tracks like "Stationary Traveller" and Rain Dances". Another couple ones "Echoes" from "Breathless" and "Air Born" from "Moonmadness". Total : four good numbers !

This is by no means an interesting compilation. I really wonder how they came up with such a poor track list. Mystery...Two stars.
