4 stars Camel's debut is an interesting album, with enjoyable music, but they really weren't mature, ready to make the great music they would show us in their next albums. Six Ate is a good example of badly arranged song. It has very good themes, but they repeat too much, and it sounds boring. Mystic Queen is the best song here, reminding me Pink Floyd. It has a delightful instrumental section, where Andy Latimer and Peter Bardens show us the great musicians they are. Never Let Go is a simpler song, with beautiful lyrics and a good chorus. It gets really better in A Live Record, with saxophone. Here I come to a complain: why doesn't Latimer play his placid and beautiful flute here? It could improve so much some of the songs.
