4 stars Rating this album as it was on Vinyl , in 1974 , and reviewing it today , makes my work very hard . No Doubt that the < Snow Goose > was , and still my least favourite release from , first because it's an instrumental album by all means , second because only two tracks was interresting to my ears only , and third I don't like short tracks ( one to two mnts ) in progressive music genre . But , having this album for 28 years without touch , specially after getting Moonmadness , the Single Factor , Mirage , Rain Dances , Breathless , I Can See yur house from Here , and Nude ( without saying anything , for now, about all releases after 1982 ) and trying for several times to reconsider hearing this album during the last 15 years , wasn't positive at all . I'm a Camel Fan since Mirage , in 74 , and i have all their albums since 1973 , but i could enjoy < Moonmadness > , or Nude , Stationnary Traveller , Mirage and Rajaz more than this one . But it doesn't mean it's not a good album . Maybe it's an excellent one but i don't simply enjoy it , it's a matter of taste , specially in Prog Music . Best two tracks in this album < Rhayader > and < Goes to town > are really my Favourites , out of their complete discography . But i enjoy those tracks more in the DVD < Coming of Age > simply amazing . Also i can say that the remaster version with bonus tracks are satisfying more than the old vinyl album . So , i can rate this album with 4 stars ( as a whole ) and both tracks < Rhayader > 5 stars . ( as this album deserves 3 stars rating , and contains tracks deserves 5 stars , so 4 stars is the right rating IMO , for the remastered CD , not the original Vinyl copy of 74 )
