1 stars I totally agree with Sean Trane's review. I do not rate this album highly, It's not even a good pop album. I like pop music almost as much as I enjoy prog and this CD is absolutely awful! Camel never had a knack for pop songs like Genesis did, or even Yes. Everything here sounds forced, like trying to be a kind of second rate Alan Parsons Project, at its very worst. Of all the songs only Sasquach and Selva stand out, both fine instrumental tunes that remind us of what this band once was (is this the truth behind the title The Single Factor? Was it suppose to be a single with those two songs?) , but they are not enough to save it from being one of the most embarrassing things Camel has ever done under its name. This band made such fine records... This one's only for hardcore fans, if they can stand it.
