2 stars "Survival", "Hymn to Her" and "Ice". Are three average good songs enough to give apositive rating to an album? I think not.

Even if Richard Sinclair is no longer in the band, most of the songs sound similar to the pop side of Caravan. "Wait", "You're Love Is Stranger Than Mine" and "Who We Are" could find room in any Caravan album of the late 70s, and this is not a good thing.

We have also the most embarassing song ever produced by Camel: Remote Romance (which has broken one of my car's tweeters years ago), is a failed attempt to make electronic pop and "Neon Magic" is not very better.

The highlight of this album is "Ice", but far from being an epic track, it's an instrumental made of a long intro, a middle part that's the core of the track and a classical guitar coda maybe a bit too long.

The presence of Phil Collins doesn't add anything, I can't say on which track he's playing what.

I'm a Camel fan so I like also this album, but it's for fans only.

octopus-4 | 2/5 |
