The Single Factor, released in 1982, is the ninth studio album by English progressive rock band Camel. Unlike previous Camel albums, The Single Factor consists exclusively of shorter compositions around 3 to 5 minutes in length.

The Single Factor is the ninth studio album from symphonic prog act Camel. The Single Factor unfortunately puts emphasis on some of the more doubtful sides of the music on Nude and as a consequence it�s the weakest effort I have heard from Camel yet ( of the nine first albums). The musicianship is good as always. It�s noteworthy that The Single Factor is the first Camel album with only Andy Latimer left from the original lineup. Andy Ward was unable to record the drum parts as a result of a bad hand injury but was still a part of the band at this time ( Even though he was suffering severe problems with alcohol and drugs in those days too).

This is second CD issue with one bonus track, similar to Camel - The Single Factor but no SID IFPI codes. Andy Ward does not appear on this album following a serious injury to his hand. Individual track timings shown are those of the actual recorded works, and may vary slightly from timings registered by your machine's digital display counter.

The Single Factor, released in 1982, is the ninth studio album by English progressive rock band Camel. Unlike previous Camel albums, The Single Factor consists exclusively of shorter compositions of around 3–5 minutes in length.

Unfortunately, the record fails to capture the magic presented by the band in its early days. The title refers to Andrew Latimer being the sole remaining member of the original classic line-up, but even with that in mind, it cannot be considered a piece worth more than average. I love Camel, but this has to be their weakest album. If you are new to the band, you should first try out their four early masterpieces (1973 - 1976). Recommended tracks from the record

Consequently, The Single Factor sounds a little forced and often fails to capture the group's magic, even though there a few strong moments on the record.
