By many considered the band's best album, Moonmadness is indeed a fantastic album. It is, however, not my personal Camel favourite - that award has to go to Mirage. Compared to that album, the present one has less energy and it mostly lacks the harder edge and intensity of Mirage; Moonmadness is a little bit slower in tempo and mellower in its mood. But there is no doubt that Latimer and Bardens came up with some fantastic songs for this album some of which are classics of the genre. Spirit Of The Water is a truly beautiful and moving song.

The keyboards, guitars, drums and bass are simply great and the occasional flutes add to the overal sound. There is not a weak moment on this album, but it doesn't blow me away quite like how Mirage does. But Moonmadness is a near-masterpiece, for sure.

A classic and an excellent addition to any Prog collection
