5 stars Camel is really a very underrated band; in my opinion prog music fans of any kind could find something appealing in Camel's music, from Latimer's guitar and flute playing to the great harmony between the members and long, satisfactory songs. This album possesses them all, every song on its own could well be a hit for any other album, and the album in its entirety stands as a block due to the resemblence of the songs. I only have to point out that the last one, called "Lady Fantasy" is such an awesome accomplishment that even the rest of the album was rubbish, the album could still get a five stars... Lady Fantasy is truly among the best songs ever composed.

To me it is the best Camel album, though The Snow Goose and Moonmadness come very close to "Mirage". An essential masterpiece, an easy 5 stars...
