Timelessness sometimes transfixes music, bringing the listener into a different zone of consciousness, and that is what this album does. After 20 years of listening to Moonmadness and most other Camel compositions, the work is still alive and fresh. The music has not aged and grown stale, like so much from the 70s era of overblown melodies and confused progressions. At times, this album rocks then, against a backdrop of flutes, saxes, and an ephemeral mix of guitar and keyboards, it rolls into an exotic slumber that despite its haunting tempo -- "Nothing Stops the River As It Flows By" -- does not become maudlin or filled with musical cliches. Buy Camel albums and enrich your life. -- Richard McCormack, Annandale, VA

This is one of Camel albums I like most (Staionary Traveller, Mirage, and Moonmadness). These are very beautiful musics over all (especially, "Airbone" and "Song within a Song"). I have never heard flute sound such beautiful as does in this album. Every instrumetal were played greatly. When you listen this album, forget everything and just concentrate on the music. You will experince the world of fantasy riding on the back of CAMEL.

Moonmadness find Camel returning back to where Mirage left off, more or less. The Snow Goose was a concept album and was largely instrumental. Moonmadness goes back to a half vocal, half all instrumental compositions. This album isn't nearly as aggressive or rocking as Mirage, as this album emphasizes more their mellower side, like "Chord Changes" which has that Dark Side of the Moon-type of atmosphere and pace going. "A Song within A Song" is perhaps closest to Mirage in sound, especially with the rocking passages. "Spirit of the Water" is one of those cool, atmospheric numbers with electronically modified vocals. "Another Night" seems to be the least interesting piece here as it's rather straightforward, but the album closes with "Lunar Sea" which is highly regarded as one of Camel's masterpieces, especially with Andy Latimer's killer lead guitar works and a great Moog solo by Peter Bardens in the middle. Moonmadness happens to be another album of theirs where more than one cover exists. The version I have is the American LP pressing on Janus (same label that also released a few Kayak and Eloy albums in the United States) which features a truly absurd cover of a camel on the moon in an astronaut's suit. Moonmadness is yet considered by many to be a fan favorite and I have absolutely no arguments about this. Totally essential which you should not go without!

Camel's allure rests not in an instant appeal; you'll find it in a magnetic desire to listen just one more time, for all the nuances you missed or simply because you just can't resist it. The audio quality of their recordings is almost tangible.
In fact, nearly all of Camel's music has this appeal. Guitarist, multi-instrumentalist and founder-member Andy Latimer remains the body and soul of Camel yet the musicianship of all the various members throughout their 26-year history is stunning. Each player contributes a unique texture that adds character to all Camel's recordings while remaining faithful to the original mood.
Although 'Moonmadness' is one of their early recordings, their most recent releases in the nineties -- 'Dust and Dreams' and 'Harbour of Tears' -- easily stand equal. Latimer's smooth, fluid touch on Moonmadness' "Air Born" is surpassed only by the powerful maturity of his guitar on "The Hour Candle" from 'Harbour of Tears' or "Rose of Sharon" from 'Dust and Dreams'. The more you listen, the more you'll want to hear -- for years past and years to come.
Deeply personal in their music, Camel is a group that can knock your socks off or melt your heart.

This is the last of four recordings made by Camel's original and finest lineup. Following this recording they made three strong albums with Richard Sinclair, of Caravan fame, as the replacement bassist. The first four discs were different than the next three in that there was more room for instrumental interplay. The chemistry between these four musicians made for some inspired and enjoyable music. The only flaw can be found in the vocals as Camel never really developed a strong vocal presence. Still in spite of this singular flaw Camel's early recordings are well worth obtaining. This record, Moonmadness, has some of Latimer's finest and most passionate soloing. Highly recommended...Simon

This was always going to be a tricky fourth album for the Bardens/Latimer oufit, coming after the acclaimed 'Snow Goose', which broke them into the big time. The vocals, never a primary concern, are, if anything, more insipid than on previous albums. The guitar-playing is as strident as ever, particularly on the stand-out rock track, 'Another Night'. Bardens's moog and organ float in throughout most of the album.
Camel were never a premier-league band, in the sense of Yes or Pink Floyd. They were perhaps too nice, and they remained in that distinguished second division of worthy but not commercially dominant bands that included Gentle Giant, Greenslade, Caravan and maybe even Hatfield & the North.
I saw them once. They did a concert at my school just before releasing their 2nd album. It was excellent. Because it was at our school, we were free to wander in and out beforehand, watching the band setting up their kit, doing sound-checks etc. Andy Ward, the drummer, came across as an exceptionally nice guy. It was distressing to hear that after the band split up, he had a breakdown and was now stacking shelves at a supermarket.
But enjoy this record, showcasing the band at their finest. The final track, 'Lunar Sea', was another concert favourite.
