PROCOL HARUM The Well's On Fire CD

Amazon.co.uk

On The Well's on Fire, smoky-throated vocalist Gary Brooker and longstanding auxiliary lyricist Keith Reid suggest that the world has become a far greedier and more dangerously divisive place since the last Procol Harum studio album (1991's The Prodigal Stranger). Here are 13 new songs addressing such global woes as Third World debt, road congestion, September 11th ("The Blink of an Eye") and false political prophets. (The maudlin, piano-led "Emperor's New Clothes" isn't quite as incisive as Roy Harper's "The Monster" but the target is just as obvious.)

It's hard to shed a tear for Procol's fictional fool who puts all his eggs in the stock market basket--the title alone, "Wall Street Blues", tells you all you need to know about the oeuvre and the outcome. But the brooding, Peter Gabriel style "This World Is Rich"--inspired by an article in The Guardian about the poor from African slums marching peacefully on the world summit for sustainable development in Johannesburg--is enough to make well-heeled Western listeners squirm humbly in their luxuriously upholstered armchairs. Furthermore, graceful compositions like the ruminative, churchy "Fellow Travellers" and organist Matthew Fisher's exquisite instrumental finale "The Signature" (yes, it really does revisit the Bachian pastures of "A Whiter Shade of Pale") compensate for every foreseeable "dad-rock" jam doodle.

Although The Well's on Fire could hardly hope to measure up to A Salty Dog or Exotic Birds and Fruit, it's a quality comeback, a long overdue reward for Procol Harum fans who've patiently kept the faith. --Kevin Maidment
