Prog Reviewer
4 stars Fifth album of this famous band and an album with a diffrent aproach of symphonic music. Rain dances was released in 1977 and featuring on bass the famous Richard Sinclair replaceing Doug Ferguson, Sinclair came from another two essential prog bands from the '70's Caravan and Hatfield and the North. And on the slowest track and mellower one named Elke is invited the great Eno Brian. So the music is kinda diffrent from the previouses one because Sinclair bring another dimension to Camel's music by adding some jazzy elements on some pieces. The whole music is very good not a step down from the previouses works.The best traks are all to me ears, not a weak one and again Camel proves that are still an excellent band who can juggling very easy with jazz and why not even with some canterbury flavours here and there. Pieces like First light, Metrognome or Unevensong are among the best Camel ever written. So a 4 star for sure, still in bussines, still great, recommended among the best Camels albums no doubt.
