This album is one of the finest - and least successful - 'comeback albums' to ever be released. After disbanding in the late 70's, Procol Harum
returned in 1991 with this very strong album that should have been a complete rebirth of this, one of the most classic and original bands of the 1960's. Despite the modern production, there isn't any artificial feeling on this album. Organist Matthew Fisher
shines on virtually every cut, as does vocalist/pianist Gary Brooker
, who along with original Procol
lyricist Keith Reid
, wrote most of the fine material on this album, which can be clearly be seen as a wonderful progression from their trailblazing work in the 1960's. Lead Guitarist Robin Trower
is on several cuts, and the addition of his frighteningly intense playing is truly icing on the cake.
