2 stars Pressure Points was my second Camel album and I used to like it a lot more then I now do. The reason is not a change in Camel taste but the setlist and album length which has become rather inadequate for today's standards.

The main reason for this degrade in appreciation is the superb title track which only existed in its full lenght form on this live album. Since the re-release of Stationary Traveller it can now be found where it belongs. It leaves this live album beheaded. Only the harder rocking Captured and Rhayader might be worth a listen.

The remainder of the tracks are either sub-standard Camel material like Drafted, Sasquatch, Wait or sound exactly like their studio versions (Lies, Berlin, Fingertips). Only for fans again.
