4 stars Hm, the last CAMEL album I bothered to listen in entirety was "I can see your house from here" in 1979, and being very boring and lame at the time, I gave up from following subsequent releases. So, my memories are stuck with their first four albums with original line-up. Then, "Rajaz" came as a big surprise and I can say that it is an excellent, melodic, emotional and perfectly produced "concept" album that I keep enjoying. Latimer shows again that he is a great guitarist and composer, if not a vocalist, but even his deep whispering singing style nicely matches the overall "Sahara feeling". "Straight to My Heart" is a nice sort of auto-bio memory that amazes me finding out that not only the poor kids of Eastern Europe (such as Yugoslavia) in the 1960s had listened to the famous Radio Luxembourg! Very good album that I can recommend to all prog fans and even to old-time CAMEL afficionados. Thumbs up!!!
