3 stars Stationary Traveller is a concept album around the story of split Berlin and what feelings spur from this situation. Fair enough, this album is Camel really trying to find it's own writing pop music. However, the songs that actually have vocals tend to be the weakest thematically due to emotions not matching with vocals and music, therefore the instrumentals on the album are the ones that deserve the attention, if any. The album has a slight mechanical sound with the occasional counter-melody guitar by Andy Latimer, so it's pretty distinct, but the album is weak song-writing wise and sound-wise, it just doesn't hit anything. Songs like Stationary Traveller and Missing can keep good interest however.
