Shamal is the sixth studio album released under the name Gong and was released by Virgin Records on 13 February  The album, produced by Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason was recorded in December Reviewing the album for the website SputnikmusicRobert Davis said:. The greatest thing about Shamal is that it's so versatile. There are only six tracks here, but each one seems to explore a different tone and aspect of musical experimentation.
The softer tracks such as opener "Wingful of Eyes" and beautiful, elegant flute-led "Bambooji" are complementary to the album's quirkier tracks, such as the almost Frank Zappa -inspired "Cat in Clark's Shoes" and eccentric closing title track. Yet what really glues all these songs together is the absence of self-indulgent musicianship and a definite knowledge of perfect instrumental placements.
Ina 2-CD remastered edition of the album was issued by UMC containing one CD of live material recorded inand unreleased bonus tracks to the regular album.
