4 stars After really liking The Silent Corner And The Empty Stage I was eager to hear the concluding part of the Peter Hammill trilogy!

I'm happy to announce that In Camera is another very strong Hammill release! Consistency-wise I actually consider this album to be the strongest in the trilogy although The Silent Corner And The Empty Stage has much higher tops in comparison I actually think that they slightly diminish the overall quality of that album. In Camera on the other hand keeps its highlights almost on the same level as the rest of the material and to be honest I've revisited this release a lot more times than the other two albums in the trilogy.

The only real flaw that I can think of is that Gog Magog can get a bit annoying upon repeated listens, although the Gog-part is really strong. Faint-Heart And The Sermon contains some of Peter Hammill's most accessible and strongest lyrics so if you're new to his work the this is probably the best album to start with!

***** star songs: (No More) The Sub-Mariner (5:47) Faint-Heart And The Sermon (6:42)

**** star songs: Ferret And The Featherbird (3:43) Tapeworm (4:20) Again (3:44) The Comet, The Course, The Tail (6:00) Gog Magog (In Bromine Chambers) (17:21)
