5.0 out of 5 stars Endangered Species 8 Feb 2005
Format:Audio CD
Camel's most varied album, superbly produced by Rupert Hine. Amazingly, it's been deleted in the U.K. for a number of years, despite the presence of the epic 'Ice', which is often voted as one of Camel's greatest tracks. The album is fabulously commercial and has a confidence that later albums like 'Single Factor' and 'Stationary Traveller' lacked. 'Wait' opens the album at full throttle, with superb keyboard interplay between Kit Watkins and Jan Schelhaas. 'Your Love Is Stranger Than Mine' was almost a hit single and 'Who We Are' is one of Camel's most underated tracks and has a beautiful orchestral arrangement. 'Hymn to Her' has been a live favourite many times and 'Neon Magic' has a beefy, driving, fairground atmosphere - spot the melody at the fade out!'Remote Romance' is clever, light-hearted sequencer driven electro pop and its penultimate positioning makes the 10 minute 'Ice' even better. Andrew Latimer's guitar solo on 'Ice' is worth buying the CD for alone. It is one of greatest guitar solos you will ever hear in rock. 'Endangered Species' was the original album title.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Mixed Bag 15 Dec 2013
By Wambo
Format:Audio CD
I first discovered Camel in 1980 (at 13) and loved The Snow Goose so much that I bought their entire back catalogue within a few months. With the exception of Single Factor, I pretty much loved all their albums equally. However, time can change perceptions - due to maturity, experience and fashion, amongst other things...

After listening to this record for the first time in more than 10 years, I now regard I Can See Your House From Here in a very different light. One of the things I like best about Camel is the coherency, flow and 'mood' of their albums - something missing from this record. It's a veritable mixed bag from a band torn asunder with Andy Latimer desperately trying to keep it going.

'Wait' is a dull and lightweight rocker (3/10). 'Your Love is Stranger Than Mine' (4/10), once one of my favourites, is a plodding piece of commercial fluff. 'Eye of the Storm' (8/10), 'Who We Are' (9/10) and Survival/Hymn to Her (8/10) are the only tracks that 'flow' and are among the best of the post-Bardens period. 'Neon Romance' (6/10), with its angry lyrics/delivery and chugging rhythm, and 'Remote Romance' (6/10) would be likeable tracks from any other band but just don't have any of the weight or sophistication I expect from Camel. 'Ice' (10/10) is a masterpiece and a clear reference point for much of Camel's later albums.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not their finest hour 5 July 2013
Format:Audio CD
Their seventh album.

I Can See Your House From Here is a bit of a halfway house and a collection of ditties and datties, it feels like. A couple of long and soaring good old style Camel tracks inbetween pop, funk and dare I say it; dance floor fillers. Some of the songs here, a large part of this album, makes me cringe really bad. The light weight pop music, that is. The only saving grace on this album is the final track Ice. The rest of the album is best forgotten.

This album presents post Pete Bardens era(and the end of 70's too) and shows us how Andrew Latimer can create his own Camel music! Here you find several new and very good musicians (Shelhaas, Kit Watkins and Colin Bass). Some of them even wrote a music for this album. Also I found Phil Collins on percussion .
The album is more collection of songs than a concept album.There are some Camel classic songs on this cd - Ice(a very emotional song), Himn to her (pure Camel' style) , Neon magic(you hear some pop sounds) , Wait (rock). Remote romance is very interesting moment on this album(electronic and pop but very funny, try it!)and other.Every fan and who just likes Camel music must have this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost Perfect (2009 edition) 11 Jan 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Almost perfect! Except for the vocals on "Neon Magic" and poor choice of "Remote Romance" as a bonus, it is the worst track on the album and no one wants to hear alternate takes or single versions of this song. Of course nobody buys an album for only one track (this is not the case), but the track "Ice" already paid the cost of the album, an absurdly fantastic musical journey, where the listener is taken into another space / time in its more 9 minutes. The other tracks are great too, especially "Eye of the Storm", "Who We Are" and "Hymn to Her". Buy without fear (so it was said before the words "mp3" and "download").

5.0 out of 5 stars Camel 6 Jan 2013
By NJ
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
'Ice' was the main reason for buying this album. The version on this particular album is a must to listen to for rock fans and is a mind blowing masterpiece of guitar music and in my opinion one of the best ever ever and certainly equals Dave Gillmores version Of the extend 'comfortably numb

4.0 out of 5 stars A neglected classic 30 Oct 2009
By The Soft Machine Operator TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album came after the patchy "Breathless" that incorporated some elements of English tweeness alongside more traditional Camel sounding songs.

This album initially sounds more "poppy" than previous concept albums, and is a collection of songs - but this is not to its detriment. The jazz influence that appeared on Rain Dances has completely gone. The opening track has a catchy, ELO-style chorus and an excellent instrumental break that's very reminiscent of early tracks like "Freefall", whilst "Your Love is Stranger than Mine" is a pop tour-de-fource driven by a catchy keyboard rythmn. Here, the band veer towards an ELO sound.

"Who we are" & "Hymn to Her" are wonderful tracks with some stunning playing by Latimer.

Remote Romance is the weakest track, driven by synth bass and vocoder vocals - but its followed by an absolutely beautiful instrumental track called "ice".

Despite its age, the album doesn't sound that dated.
