Album review

Procol Harum - The Well's On Fire

While it can't be said that Procol Harum are still the melodic force they were in the '60s and early '70s, this, their 12th album in 36 years, is never less than honest, dignified and graceful—music of indisputable integrity made with soul and technical assurance. There's no sign here of any uncommitted running through the changes. This is still a real group in genuinely active condition, which in itself is remarkable. Probably mainly for the band's many long-term devotees, nonetheless.
