"The Single Factor" is doomed to be tossed into the same dustbin of history as ELP's "Love Beach", "Big Generator" by Yes and many other albums that great prog bands recorded in attempts at commercial success while utterly failing to please the fans. Camel, like everyone else, had a go of it and this album was the '80's result. And yeah, this isn't anything to write home about; Camel never were able to come up with anything anywhere near commercial despite a few big hooks and a fairly accessible late '70's album called "I Can See Your House From Here". But "Single Factor" isn't the embarrassing disaster it's often made out to be, either. 'Manic' and 'Camelogue' are, in my opinion, two of the all-time greatest Camel recordings. There's decent moments elsewhere on this disc, but nothing comes close to the quality of those two tracks, which make this whole damned cd worth buying.

The Single Factor is in my opinion Camel's best album. Heroes is a fantastic song: lead vocal by David Paton is excellent and backing vocals by one of the greatest voices ever, Chris Rainbow. Both have also been part of the Alan Parsons Project. Another highlight is 'You Are The One'. Except for bass and drums, Andrew Lattimer does it all on this song. Furthermore I especially like 'Camelogue', 'Today's Goodbye' and 'A Heart's Desire'. Maybe old-fashioned Camel fans prefer other albums, but I like this one because there is more singing on this one than on other Camel albums.

True, Andy Latimer's the only REAL Camel guy on it, but this album is unfairly dumped-on by Camel fans. The whole 2nd side is gorgeous, especially "Sasquatch" & "A Heart's Desire/End Peace," "Manic" is an Xtremely angry-sounding tale of schizophrenia, & "Camelogue" & "Today's Goodbye" R at least pleasant & intresting. The 1st side's more of a problem: "No Easy Answer" is OK, & "Heroes" is nice ... but the rest IS a significant drop-off in quality from previous albums. So play the 2nd side, Njoy the guest work by Peter Bardens & Anthony Phillips, & take it 4 what it is -- perhaps not as "progressive" as the band's hard-core fans would like, but still real nice. I think Latimer held-up pretty well under the commercial pressure from his record company. This is as good as the earlier BREATHLESS and I CAN SEE YOUR HOUSE FROM HERE, if not as solid as SNOW GOOSE or NUDE....

This was a strange time for Camel--the only real illusion this album has to being a Camel album is that Andrew Latimer is on every track. The one highlight is Sasquatch. Peter Bardens comes back to the fold to play some nice keyboards, supported by Anthony Phillips' (Genesis) twelve-string and Simon Phillips'(Jon Anderson's Animation, The Who, Mike Rutherford, etc.) amazing drum playing. I got this album mostly because Anthony and Simon were on it, and thought there would be more great moments. The official Camel web site talks about how fun this album was to make, and that energy does come through. I just wish some more good music would have come out of it. Camel is a great band, with their first 5 albums being extreme classics. This album is mostly for someone wanting the entire Camel catalogue.

OK, so it's not the classic Camel sound, but it is still better than the stuff you heard on the radio back then. It was a way for me to sell Progressive rock to commercial music listenners and it worked. They can understand it, and it has some great licks that are a part of the Camel sound. Then they buy a more progressive album like Nudes, and now are into progressive rock or they just like it. With this album you can play it at parties were you have diverse groups of music lovers.
