3 stars I'm only reviewing the song Summerlightning, for that's a grandiose track, starting a little poppish, but when Andy starts with his guitarsolo all fall's into place, stunning solo that's a proof of the musical skills this boys possesses.

The rest of the album is quite alright also, nice bass, good drums, decent, but not great vocals (as ussual), great guitars, nice flute sax and key's. a bit more poppish than previous albums ( a change that started really with Moonmadness already).

Not the place to start when your new to Camel, and for die-hard prog camel fans this might be to pop, but if only for Summer Lightning this is still a good album.

3 stars, but not for starters.
