5 stars This is a more experimental and progressive album in story of Procol Harum. The songs goes in diferent directions: the classic style in "Rambling on" and "Magdalena" and the long and epic suite "In Held Twas in I". In this song all is a surprise and full of inovation: a mix of progressive and psycadelic world which contain speak words (like the Moody Blues...), classic ambients in a dark vein, instrumental experiments, songs of storms and thunders, bells and lots of sounds came, like the first Beatles, to the sky of diamonds. Is one of the first concept songs in a story of rock. After this, the sound of Procol Harum became more rock and blues (more Robin Trower and few Gary Brooker...) till the classic period of "Live" and "Grand Hotel. But this is another story.
