5 stars Any fan of symphonic prog will have heard of the mighty Camel. Released in 1975, this album made a big splash amongst prog fans and to this day remains to be one of the essential symphonic prog albums of the era. This is an instrumental album, besides a few randomly placed Focus-like vocal sections throughout. The album opens with the delicately beautiful "The Great Marsh", which is an excellent album opener. Throughout the album we hear different aspects of prog music, with tracks that sound similar to the works of Yes, Focus, King Crimson and even Gong. The album is very well put together, containing several reprises and recurring musical themes which give it (even though it's an instrumental piece) the feel of a concept album. The high point of the album is probably the track "The Snow Goose", the magnnificent guitar riff to which will make you immediately fall in love with the album. A triumph for progressive rock, and Camel's finest album to date. A must have for any serious prog fan.
