I enjoy original tracks, and Camel has this plus, i would include Aristillus as a nice original one.

As a matter of fact, Lady Fantasy may just as well be the song that make me prefer "Mirage"... and "The White Rider" too, in a lesser degree. The thing is, apart from those two songs, both albums seem just about equally brilliant to me, but it is those two songs that put Mirage a step ahead.

For me, as an overall I like Moonmadness a little more. Air Born, Song Within A Song, Lunar Sea, can't vote against them, even if I really like Lady Fantasy.

I feel like Mirage is far and away Camel's best album and I don't understand why people prefer Moonmadness, or Snow Goose for that matter.

I haven't heard those.
 
Camel - Landscapes (Nude) is the first Camel song that i happened to know, it was the "curtain" of a Radio Program which i listened to sometimes in the final of 80's, this melancholic song is special for me, it indeed consolated me sometimes... a kind of song not common in the Prog Rock world.

If you had asked me when I started getting into Camel, I would've said Mirage, but now I say Moonmadness.

Not much between them though. Easily my favourite two of their first five albums, which are the ones I own and are most familiar with.

The Snow Goose is my least favourite of those, BTW.

Rajaz is great music. And what about the song FOR TODAY? For me a masterpiece (music and lyric)
