1 stars A very light, boring proto-progressive album with tasteless Beatles-y accents. Among this naive collection of hippie songs we can notice the really sixties pop ballad "Pilgrims progress", the almost honest bluesy melodic "Crucifiction lane" with its heavy guitars, crying, difficult vocals and pleasant Hammond organ passages, also the ridiculously mediocre mainstream folk ballad "Boredom". The Band have released a couple of classic songs with clear progressive intentions (before time), I'm thinking about "the dead man's dream"...For my part, I believe that Procol Harum have a real musical potential but most part of time it is muted, surely in order to answer and to satisfy commercial obligations. Consequently "A Salty Dog" is a really poor, soft album that can only ravish little conformist listeners / consumers. Fans of complex music, just ignore this one.
