4 stars Of course it's not realy the specific sound from the LATIMER,BARDEN erea and closer to what LATIMER did through HARBOUR or DUST AND DREAM but this album is a beautifull recording that features all i love in CAMEL music, strong melodies , colourfull guitar parts and misty vocals .the good thing is that ANDY left that eighties sound i was'nt keen on and returned to the roots specialy with keyboards and drums .The inspiration is sad and very nostalgic ( but so was MOONMADNESS ) maybee ANDY father's death is the reason and it's a fact that it's the last album before ANDY got into health troubles .This album needs a few listenings before displaying his beauty ( a boy's life ), the guitar part on FOX HILL is strong and even if i miss a little PETER i enjoy the keyboard part. another good point is the flute return cause it's an essential colour in the CAMEL alchemy This record is the good one to listen to in automn while walking through the forest , a good friend .
