"YES!!! You lovers of Moonmadness and SNOW(overrated)GOOSE(I did
not just write that?)I first heard Mirage in 75("OUCH,AGE")and
had the u.s.a. album cover(not the smokes cover)I thought it was
so cool to see this buffed camel with wings holding cut pieces
of diamonds. I quickly put it on the turntable scratching the hell
out of it(sorry mom)but heard such wonderful music I could not
believe it.Nimrodel for me will always be my personal fav.I-I
don't know why till this day there is a lyric in this masterpiece
song,I guess the way it's sang still makes my eyes blurry and wet.
Anyway I never heard there debut album and will buy,but for me
this will always be my FAV. Camel album and easily in my top 10
of ALL time,it is to bad that more people don't know of them.For
they are a fantastic band.Adios you lovers of Camel and great music.
And shame,shame on you who graded this 4 stars or even less????????
You naughty naughty lil boys and girls you! "As if he never there
but somehow far away. Although he seem far,like a distant star
HIS FORM...BEGAN TO FADE......................................"
Smiles for you

"Luis Mejia (son) - The follow up to Camel's debut album, Mirage prooves to be a much more cohersive and astonishing, comprehensible album than its predecessor. In this case, the progresive rock seen is much more compelling, profesional, and correctly prepared and arrange, with subtle, rhythmical jazz expressions ("Freefall") and exponential, infectious, elongated riffs ("Lady Fantasy", which may stand as their magnum opus), the album has become one of their classics and most loved. The problem of their satiric and insipid improvisation is obvious in the customized prog pieces "Earthrise" and "Nimrodel", but as far as it goes, music is down to earth, and the classic lineup plays for the first time in a fine manner, but still they were not into any concrete fashion."
