5 stars this album is an absolute masterpiece and is the best camel album up to date. i think its essential to anyone who is intrested in getting to know prog rock because its "ear friendly", melodic and beautifly played and performed, especially in the guitar and keyboards work (latimer and bardens are absolutely amazing together) but the rythm section is also great. all songs are magnificent but, and this is important, the final piece - lady fantasy is simply mind blowing from start to finish. this is a track that simply defines prog rock along with close to the edge, firth of fifth, la villa strangiato and thick as a brick. you can actually hear the almost orgasmic pleasure of the band as they play this piece, especially in the bombastic end where the band is bursting your ears with incredible sounds.
