5 stars My first encounter with Colin BASS was on the recent few CAMEL albums in which he simply blew me away and I really found his symphonic influences mixed perfect with Latimer's guitar and song writing. "An Outcast Of The Islands" is bass's first solo album and what an album it is! Without a question this album I would put on the same level as the recent CAMEL albums with clean swooping symphonic atmospheres, breathtaking instrumentation and great song writing. BASS plays all basses adds keyboards and vocals and is joined by CAMEL's Andy Latimer (guitar) and Polish Prog QUIDAM's Zbyszek Florek (keyboards), Szymon Brzezinski (guitars), Marcin Btaszczyk (keyboards) and Dave Stewart on drums.

This is a very complete album with even 2 orchestral instrumental pieces he performed with the Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra. Overall an exception album full of great songs and amazing instrumentation. highly recommended!
