Album Review

A new, larger version of Camel debuted on Nude, a concept album about a Japanese soldier stranded on a deserted island during World War II and staying there, oblivious to the outside world, for 29 years. More ambitious than the preceding I Can See Your House from Here, Nude is in many ways just as impressive. Although it's a less accessible effort, it has a number of quite intriguing passages, particularly since it boasts heavier improvisation, orchestration, and even some worldbeat influences. It's not as spacy as Camel's earlier progressive rock records, yet it is quite atmospheric, creating its own entrancing world. [A remastered version of Nude was released in 2009, including ten bonus tracks recorded live at the Hammersmith Odeon in 1981 for the BBC Radio 1 program In Concert.]

A stand out album from an underated band

The story of a marooned WWII Japanese solder who survives on his island for many years with no idea the war had finished years before. I'm no Camel fan but I love this album, prog rock, definitely but still easily accessible with some great, tuneful songs. Would be perfect for anyone wishing to dip a toe into that deep and wide ocean we know as Progressive Rock. I first heard this on cassette (remember them?) deep in an english forest at night. So listen to the whole thing with your eyes closed and the story will unfold before you. Enjoy.

Another cracker from Camel!

Knew this album for years, but only recently purchased it.
I didn't know what I was missing.
It's right up there with Moonmadness and Snow Goose.
Wish I'd have owned this years ago!
