4 stars This is a slightly different album for Camel. The first records are all about Andy Latimer showing what a great guitarist he is backed by great musicians who came into their own over the course of each album. Moonmadness however is all about Peter Bardens who has great moments all through every song starting with the Keyboard centric short introduction to the album Aristillus. He them has fantastic solo moments in Song Within a Song and throughout the rest of the album. This is not to say Latimer, Ferguson and Ward are forgettable in this album because that isn't true each member gives a fantastic performance in every song. Andy Latimer does take on a more supportive role on this record giving camel a fantastic new keyboard centric flavour which has put this record far above the rest for some fans. This album is very much a continuation of the great work done on The Snow Goose and is the sound of years of learning and work put into a progressive rock masterwork.
