2 stars Yes, pity story again there... I think, Camel had it's golden moment once (quite short, and not as gold ,as possible, I think), but that time is gone. What we have on their "Breathless"?

First of all, we have a serious list of players: Burdens, Latimer + Sinclair and Collins ( he was so perfect somewhere collaborating with King Crimson!). After, we have a music played: faceless and openly flirting with synth-pop collection of song. What does it means?

If you miss your ideas ( or inspiration) , but you are professional musician and have a rights for quite valuable trade mark in rock-music ( as "Camel"is), you can try to stay on the wave just mixing some breaks from "Camel ", "Caravan ", and put more pop-spices just to make this food for ears more tasteful. What is the result?

As in restaurant with bad cook: if your food is tasteless, just put more spices! So, we have there mainly spices (no food) for our ears. As in bad restaurant, you know...
