3 stars This album by Procol Harum represents a good comeback to the music industry as die hard fans still can enjoy the style of the band's original sounds through Gary Brooker's good voice and Mathew Fisher's organ work. Of course you should not expect something like "A Whiter Shades of Pale" or "Repent Walpurgis" or "Conquistador" would repeat down here with this album. That songs were really masterpiece and it's "probably" impossible that the band is able to recreate similar things.

This album is really enjoyable especially on the stream of music from songs featured here from the cool "An English Dream" right through the song with beautiful and motivating lyrics like "The Question" until the concluding track "Weisselklenzenacht" (The Signature) (5:24). Generally speaking, the music is entertaining especially with the nice melody and good rhythm section featuring one of excellent voices of legendary band by Gary Brooker. The band brings us the memories of early seventies but with modern sound. The songwriting, performance and sonic quality of the CD is good. Normal music buffs would enjoy this album. This album is very enjoyable during my "bike to work" activities from home to the office and back to home with bicycle and Sennheizer earphone at my ears. What a relaxing thing ..

After the release of this album the band recorded the live DVD which is also worth to collect as well.
