5 stars This definately my favourite albums of all times.

Featuring the best of the best Camel has to offer, this album includes all their classics of wich their ulitmate anthem song 'Lady Fantasy'.

The album kicks off with a heavy rocking psychedelic track with lots of guitar and organ.

Supertwister is dedicated to the dutch band Supersister and is an instrumental wich features Andy's best flute-work i his entire career.

The trilogy White Rider is based on Gandalf of the Lord of the Rings and showcases what progrock is all about, flutes, mellotron, organ, guitars an dlots of time-signature changes. This song is only overshadowed by Lady fantasy, ontherwise The Whire Rider would have been the ultimate Camel-song.

Side two kicks off with another heavy rocking song with organ/guitar solos throughout.

Lady Fantasy is wihtout a doubt among the best of progrock songs ever made! The different musical themes have now problem following eachother and the vocals are never boring. The only downside to the song, is that when it's over you wnat more!

With an excellent choice for a record cover this album is one of the ultimate prockrock albums on the planet.

Kingsnake | 5/5 |
