3 stars This is my 4th review of a Camel album as I work my way randomly through them all, or at least all of them I am familiar with. Stationary Traveler was an album I really enjoyed when it first appeared but over time, my appreciation has lessened some. Maybe I have come to discover that it is somewhat more simplistic than other Camel efforts. It is, however, much better than the previous effort SIngle Factor. I find the "mechanical" 80's sound of this album to be a bit dated and it has an overall Alan Parsons style to it in many parts. This is not to say that is a bad thing, but it does have a poppy feel to it-Short songs with choruses. As Camel had been pared down to almost nothing of what it started as, this may not be surprising. Andy Latimer holds up the Camle name in a mostly fine fashion. THis album is good but not great. A solid 3 stars is my rating. What is interesting is this is the last complete Camel album album I bought. No idea why, maybe I felt they had passed their prime.
