Format: Audio CD
This album is almost perfect! Containing some of Hammill's best songs, beautifully arranged. Here he experimented with the ARP synth, especially on the majestic "(No More) The Sub Mariner". He would further go down this road on the excellent "The Future Now" album. The song itself is quite superb, lyrically dealing with looking back on childhood and considering self identity and faith. "Faint-Heart and The Sermon" is a mighty cathedral of sound, with the mellotron adding to the Byzantine grandeur. "Tapeworm" is the nearest to VdGG here. "Again" is a typically heartfelt song, full of Hammill emotion. He does this very well! "Gog", which was played by VdGG is mercilesss in its intensity. Pummelling drums by Guy Evans and a huge, brooding harmonium played by Hammill himself.

I said an almost perfect album! Where the album is let down for me is the 10 minute "Magog(In Bromine Chambers)". This was Hammill at his most extreme and experimental. Using musique concrete ideas to produce a deeply unsettling and darkly ambient soundtrack, this is difficult listening. Only in those days could this sort of stuff be done! But I can easily forgive him this slight indiscretion, considering the quality of what has gone before.

Throughout, the lushness and complexity of the arrangements and production is gorgeous, enhanced to the max on this welcome remaster. This is probably one of the best sounding Hammill albums. Remarkable for the day, as the majority of it was recorded at his fledgling home studio Sofa Sound. The three bonus tracks are culled from a 1974 BBC session so the sound quality is very good. These are simply Hammill, voice and piano on two "In Camera" cuts and a VdGG track from "H to He Am The Only One". Quite magical they are too!

This is my fourth copy of In Camera - I've owned the original release on vinyl, a re-release on vinyl, the original CD and now this. Buying the same record four times obviously indicates that I'm extremely taken by the music. "Ferret and Featherbird" and "Again" are delicate love songs, quite unlike any other song on the album - could there be a more perfect line than "time and distance make a love secure"? "Faint-Heart and the Sermon" was occasionally played by Van der Graaf Generator; its arrangement suggests that would have been a VdGG song had the band been in existence in 1974.

The most controversial song(s) here is/are the pairing of "Gog" and "Magog". On the original vinyl and CD they were presented as a single track. Here, they are tracked separately, which is a little odd if you like to listen to music on shuffle. "Gog" is the claustrophobic rant of an anti-god (a live version of Gog appeared on the reissue of Still Life and the song still appears in VdGG's live set), while Magog is a ten-minute long piece of musique concrete. The remastering's improvement in sound shows most in Magog - I hear sounds there I've never heard before, indeed, still can't hear when I listen to the earlier CD version.

Twenty minutes of Peter Hammill solo at the piano can be hard work at times, but not here. In fact this is, in my opinion, the best of the three versions available of "Emperor".

Aside from Mr Hammill's sleeve-notes, the booklet has been prepared with an eye to reproducing the spirit of the original release within the confines of the 12cm square of a CD booklet. One minor quibble: the back of the case refers to songs called "Go" and "Faint Heart and the Sermom". Obviously the proof-reader's day off...

I first heard this album in 1980, when I was fourteen years old (at exactly the same time as his album of that year 'A Black Box'). Everyone has to have 'epiphany' albums and this one was one of mine. Together, these two records utterly changed my appreciation of what music is capable of being, and of what expression through sound and words can mean. Initially, the opening track made little impact - just a pleasant sounding love song - good but nothing remarkable. I almost dismissed it as just another self-indulgent dated hippie album. But with the next track - No More the Submariner - I realised I was in quite different territory. This album cannot be used as background music, nor can it be danced to.

Though it lacks conventional coherance, it is a brainstorm of an album, with moments that are so intense that I am surprised Hammill's four-track didn't explode just trying to keep up with him. This is the sound of a man hammering at the technological walls that try to confine him. 'Submariner' is an ecstatic pean to free will, 'Faint-heart and the sermon' a psychedelic hymn to the disorientation of faith, 'The comet, the course, the tail' an ode to the futilty of war, and 'Gog' - well this is a record that presents the concept of evil as a deafening carnival of dramatic swirling gothic organ and howling vocals, trailing away into the utterly clamourous doom of Magog, the final track of atmospherics. I am not surprised there were no hits off this album. Some inevitably dismiss this on ground of 'good taste' as OTT prog theatrics, but I personally cannot imagine a world without this man and his extraodinary visionary commitment.

The extra tracks are also faultless examples of Hammill's solo piano style, and are excellent versions in their own right. Rarely do extra tracks add anything truly extra to reissues - but in this case they really do.
