Camel - Breathless CD

SKU 28-POLK820726.2
Their follow up to Raindances, with the same killer lineup of Peter Bardens, Andy Latimer, Mel Collins, Richard Sinclair and Andy Ward.

"As a life long Camel fan, I am used to certain quarters criticising Camel's change of style for this album. Sinclair's exceptional Bass guitair adds a jazzier feel to the music while his vocals are more refined and are a vast imnprovement on Latimer's or Bardens. Admittedly there are one or two weaker tracks such as "Wing and a Prayer" and "You make me Smile" but the inclusion of "Summer Lightening" with its rippling keyboards that builds to a blistering guitar solo and Andy Ward's exceptional drumming, is enough to place this in my top 5 favourite Camel albums. "Down on the Farm" is a whimsical Canterbury-esque piece, unsurprisingly penned by ex-Caravan member Richard Sinclair while "Echoes" and "The Sleeper" are strong tracks that you would expect from Camel, with the latter not sounding too disimilar from the classic "Lunar Sea". Dont be put off by the change of style - this album is a must for all Camel fans and lovers of good music."-Mark Bruce Roberts
