MOONMADNESS is the last album to feature Doug Ferguson on Bass, hence the last effort to feature the original band as it was conceived. Every track is a gem, particularly any tune which features Andy Latimer on vocals. It's a shame Amazon does not offer sound files of these tracks. Lunar Sea is brilliant, as is Air Born, and Song Within a Song. Spirit of the Water is the late Peter Bardens masterpiece - so simple and so deeply moving for such a short tune. I have owned this album various times in all formats since I first purchased it in 1976. It ranks among my top 10 discs to have if stranded on a distant planet - along with Sheherazade and Other Stories from Renaissance and Trespass from Genesis. The follow up RAINDANCES (without Ferguson - replaced by Richard Sinclair of Caravan) goes off into a jazzier direction and loses some of the mystery and vocal depth found here, although it is worth having if your a CAMEL fan. And, as always with Andy Latimer - brilliant, emotive guitar work. In fact, all the players are at their best here.

This 1976 album would prove to be the last with the classic Camel lineup and (after the epic, song-cycle suite The Snow Goose (1975)) returns to the format on Mirage (1974). Musically, Moonmadness continues Camels brand of progressive rock with a dash of jazz rock, yet is more synth-heavy than previous albums. The overall feel is a bit softer too, especially in contrast with the hard rocking 1973 debut and Mirage. My guess is that the softness is a holdover from the mellow Snow Goose album.

The lineup on Moonmadness includes Andrew Latimer (electric and acoustic guitars, flute, and vocals); Pete Bardens (Hammond organ, electric piano, acoustic piano, mini-moog, ARP Odyssey, and vocals); Doug Ferguson (electric bass and lead vocal on Song within a Song); and Andy Ward (drums, percussion and voice on Aristillus). All of the musicians are very good and I especially like Pete's Hammond organ and especially his synthesizer work on this album - he gets some great synth sounds. The ensemble work is very good too - this is especially surprising given that Doug was on his way out of the band at this point. With respect to the vocal department, they are not necessarily Camel's strong suit but it does not ruin anything for me at all. Come to think of it, they seem to try and get around the vocal problem by subjecting the vocals to various electronic effects on a few tracks.

The seven tracks on the album range in length from 1'56" to 9'07". Musically, Moonmadness presents an excellent mixture of sprightly prog/jazz rock instrumentals; vocal tracks; softer more pastoral tracks (Spirit of the Water; Air Born) and longish proggy tracks including the synth-heavy Lunar Sea. There is not much of a hard feel to any of the tracks and everything is very "warm" sounding.

I have something important to say. Many times you've probably heard people say "If everyone heard such-and-such album, the world would be a better place". Camel seem to have been created to help make people better. I'm serious. These guys are good at writing music that's pleasantly soothing while at the same time extremely interesting for progressive rock fans, and because of this I have no choice but to declare Camel one of the best rock bands ever. They really deserve to be known as one of the best and I think you'll agree with me once you hear how incredible their songwriting skills are.

I also have another thing that urgently needs to be said, and this is also important- I'm an American who was born in the early 80's. I wasn't around when these 70's masterpieces were created and released to the public. I find it extraordinary that these musicians were able to write music that connects with me on a very personal level.

You know, people like to think "People from other countries have different traditions, and aren't really like me in any way" but that's completely NOT true because Camel manages to put creative images in my head that *very* few musicians seem to be able to do. Every time I listen to a Camel album and get caught up in the keyboards, guitar work or synth jams, a dream I had many years ago all of a sudden enters my head that I thought had been forgotten forever. Dreams that I had forgotten for years suddenly return and become the center of my thoughts.

It's amazing how these musicians who were writing music years before I was born were able to really glue me into their sound and style like it was completely natural. This music is just extremely *right* in every way. Sometimes I even think the band members feel like brothers to me.

This is a very fine record and sadly the last one from Camel's excellent first line-up. The music throughout the record is very well crafted with rich instrumental parts and excellent melodies. I really like the tones of all instruments on this record. The interplay between Latimer's guitar and Bardens' keyboards is wonderful, but this wouldn't be a genuine band effort without the great rhythm section - Ferguson and Ward, whose playing is very intriguing and dynamic here. "Lunar Sea" is a showpiece of Camel at its best. Starting with a beautiful synthesizer intro it develops into a magical adventure where every sound has a meaning and each player gives his best effort. Other songs won't leave you cold either. They are all Camel classics! This record is definately an essential one, and not only in Camel catalogue, but in 70's prog and rock scene in general. If you're new to Camel, this might be a good record to start with. Highest recommendations!
