Take Camel's sound, then reburbish it with a harsh attitude in the guitar riffs and solos, and while you're at it, enrich its melodic sensibility with Asian flavours (mostly on flute), and don't forget to add an eerie ambience a-la Pulsar and a great amount of incredibly tight drumming: the result of this set of operations is the debut album by Asia Minor, a solid symphonic ensemble formed by Turksih musicians resident in France. Though I must admit that I prefer their following album, it's also fair to state that 'Crossing the Line' is a real classic of late 70s prog.
