4 stars Reunion album from Procol Harum after many years of silence. Nearly classic line-up with the sound updated for the early 90s. Still strong voice of Gary Brooker, Hammond organ, guitar by Robin Trower... Well, sound of drums could seem a little monotonous (in the 80s style). The result? It depends on what are you waiting for . It's naive to wait that on the album from 1991 you would hear the song which could impress you as much as "A Whiter Shade of Pale" or "Homburg" many years ago. But... From my point of view musicians honestly tried to re-create the spirit of Procol Harum music and you would get it while listening to the album. There's one killer song - "All Our Dreams Are Sold", and many impressive ones. "The King of Hearts" as example. Comparing with "Something Maigic" or "The Well's on Fire" it is superior album - that's why I'm giving it 4 stars. Anyway, the mood, the spirit - what's more we could ask from music? Welcome to journey to Procol Harum's world.
