I Can See Your House From Here, is a bit inconsistent with some forgettable tracks, but the best songs are worth it. I love the opening and closing tracks especially.
Nude brings the band back to their Snow Goose days since it's another album-length mostly-instrumental story-adaptation. And they do a great job with it. After this album the band started to get pressured to sell out which resulted in the aptly-named The Single Factor, and they kinda fell apart and turned into an Andy Latimer solo project at that point. I haven't heard much of their later stuff, but I did hear that Latimer and co had a pretty good creative resurgence later on. Some of those albums have high scores of Prog Archives (but then, PA also rated the albums I just named above as being shit, so what do they know?)
Also i just learned that their late-era bass player is named Colin Bass, which is my new favourite fact.
Camp O Physique kind of makes me think of Captain Beefheart. I like their sense of humour a lot too. They can write great normal songs if they want to, but they've got great skills for weird stuff. And they can play their asses off. I love their drummer, he's really skilled with some wild playing. he's also the band's leader btw, so you could count him on the small list of drummers/frontmen.
>> there seems to be way better bands out there doing the kind of thing they do I am sure.
well yeah of course. I do think they developed a pretty good pop sense on those albums I named that blended nicely with their prog tendencies. But of course it's not like prog-pop is on the top of too many people's lists of fav genres. (I like it from time to time though).
