5 stars No Doubt , like Solid Gold , there's no more room to talk about Latimer's & team , Reviewing my friends reviews about Camel satisfies my hunger to the truth , and my only truth is that Coming of age , in addition to few DVD releases between the period 1998 & 2008 , arriving somewhere ( porcupine tree ) is also one of them are more than satisfying , taking into consideration my age . and thanks God that i was able to witness that Camel releases during 37 years was more than excellent . A five stars indeed . /// Tracks In fact this show represent what i was waiting for from Camel since Pressure Points , i was really dreaming in this concert since the 70's , and when i first saw it , my heart was increasly beating , and my body trembled , from the choice of tracks , to the band performances , to the normal & easy stage without any fancy stuff and lighting , to the high quality of sound , and to Andy's emotion's while performing an excellent 25 songs from previous releases , mirage / moonmadness , i can see your house , snowgoose , nude , harbour of tears , & dust and dreams . So why i consider this dvd as a masterp[iece .

Enjoying an excellent musical achievment doesn't necessary put it in the top rating , but in the case of Coming of Age , there's no doubt for me that this work is the best & rare Camel live releases since the early 70's , and simply the best it can be done by the creativity source of Camel , Andrew ( Andy Latimer )

My rating was based on , The Stage , easy & suitable for the band and the kind of music played The Crowd , focusing & witnessing one of their favourite bands in wonderful shape , and responding with passion to every song . The track list was more than satisfying , at least to my taste as a Camel's fan & collector since their very first album . The Versions of Ice , Watching the Bobbins , Rose of Sharon , Drafted , Docks , Hymn to her , and Rhayader are simply amazing . The Band Performance was full of feelings & emotions , Andy's guitar was a part of his body while playing Ice , twisting in harmony and responding to his fingers in a beautiful ways . Colin , Foss & Dave as well were charming in their plays . My Best Tracks in this dvd are ,,,,, All of Them , from the beginning till the end , but , i insist on Ice , and Andy's feelings while playing this wonderful instrumental track , really amazing Toni ///
