WEBLINKS: Procol Harum website

Gary Brooker and Procol Harum go way back into time. Way way back. And yet, here they are in 2017, celebrating their 50th anniversary. 'Novum' is the band's thirteenth album, and first since 2003's 'The Well's On Fire'. 'Novum' is getting a big round of PR in early 2017, as Brooker and Co bring back a hybrid of classic rock and blues. To be honest, 'Novum' isn't going to set the world on fire, but there are some songs that sneak up on you. 'Image Of The Beast' reminded me of Crawler from back in their late 70's heyday, the lyrical statement of 'Soldier' is worth hearing, so too the Boz Scaggs sounding 'Can't Say That' and the cranky 'Businessman'. The album probably contains too many slow-tempo piano ballads which softens the album more than it should, but for old fogies who remember the band at their peak, 'Novum' should come as a special surprise.
