3 stars This was the "reunion album" for Procol Harum in 1991, but recorded without B.J. Wilson, who died in late 1990, and this album was dedicated to him in the C.D. booklet notes. For this reunion, the members were Gary Brooker, Matthew Fisher, Robin Trower and Keith Reid, plus session musicians or musicians who previously recorded and toured with Gary Brooker as a soloist. It seems that Robin Trower didn`t play in all the songs, but one of the best songs is "All Our Dreams Are Sold ", co-written by Brooker, Trower and Reid. Several songs were co-written by Brooker, Fisher and Reid. "The Pursuit of Happiness" is a very good song. The sound of the album is an "updated" Procol Harum for the 90s, with female backing vocals in some songs, and some synthesizers (not listed in the credits). Some songs are still similar to the old Procol Harum style, but some sound more oriented to Radio Playing, maybe commercial. But it is a good album. The drummers who played in this album are good, but B.J. Wilson is missed, in my opinion. After this album, Procol Harum did a tour, but without Trower, who didn`t want to tour.
