Overview

With their second album, Mirage, Camel began to develop their own distinctive sound, highlighted by the group's liquid, intricate rhythms and the wonderful, unpredictable instrumental exchanges by keyboardist Pete Bardens and guitarist Andy Latimer. Camel also distinguishes itself from their prog rock peers with the multi-part suite "Lady Fantasy," which suggests the more complex directions they would take a few albums down the line. Also, Latimer's graceful flute-playing distinguishes several songs on the record, including "Supertwister," and it's clear that he has a more supple technique than such contemporaries as Ian Anderson. Camel is still ironing out some quirks in their sound on Mirage, but it's evident that they are coming into their own. [The 2002 reissue offers four bonus tracks: the previously unreleased "Lady Fantasy" medley and live versions of "Supertwister," "Mystic Queen," and "Arubaluba."]
