4.0 out of 5 stars Broken Barricades - a Procol milestone., 5 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Broken Barricades (40th anniversary series) (Audio CD)
The opening track - Simple Sister - is classic Procol Harum. Building from a stark but memorable opening guitar riff it gathers momentum and intensity. Gary Brooker's vocals are inspired, his percussive piano just awesome and there is majestic soaring guitar from the soon to be departed Robin Trower. Broken Barricades follows and it provides an elegant contrast. The wistful tune shimmers over BJ Wilson's beautifully delivered drum part. The vocals exemplify Keith Reid's enigmatic qualities as a lyricist. These tracks are the most memorable on the album and justify making the purchase. This is not to impugn the remaining material. There is some good stuff here, it's just not quite as spellbinding. Trower contributes three pieces which are a foretaste of delights to follow in his solo career. Power Failure, sardonically titled, showcases BJ Wilson and should be bracketed somewhere near Moby Dick in the category headed "Definitive Rock Drum Solos".
