Procol continued as a four-piece, and it was indeed a good thing that they decided not to replace Fisher. The sound of the band on this album is a bit sparser, but definitely not without dimension and dynamics. Simple Sister," one of the finest Gary Brooker/Keith Reid compositions, is truly glorious, with Robin Trower's frightening lead guitar work juxtaposed nicely against a wonderful string arrangement. Several other tracks are first rate, including "Power Failure" and "Playmate of the Mouth.

Procol Harum, along with high-profile bands like Pink Floyd, the Rolling Stones, the Allman Brothers Band, the Byrds, the Guess Who, Genesis, Little Feat, had lost key members at various stages, but mostly recovered; a few other bands didn’t recover as successfully (such as the Who, the Band, the Doors, Chicago, Love, Queen), but they all carried on, for better or worse, at least for a while. The main difference was that those who retained their heretofore tried-and-true sound had mixed results, but a few such as Pink Floyd, the Byrds and Procol Harum, in particular, largely reinvented themselves. Pink Floyd, of course, went from early pop-psychedelic space-whimsy in the Syd phase to moody long-form art/space-rock, with huge critical and commercial success. The Byrds lost a great songwriter and voice in Gene Clark after two albums, then another in David Crosby during the recording of their fifth, and went from being the inventors of American folk-rock to practically invent country-rock (gaining Gram Parsons (briefly) and then Clarence White). The Byrds’ only constant was Jim/Roger McGuinn.Similar to the Byrds, Procol Harum’s mainstay was Gary Brooker. They’re a great example of a band that survived rather well, despite the loss of several key members (Matthew Fisher and David Knights in 1969 after A Salty Dog, and Robin Trower after Broken Barricades). After Fisher’s departure, especially, the distinctive Hammond organ sound and classical baroque pop which permeated Procol’s first three albums and their associated singles, defining their sound, was no longer much in evidence; his replacement, Chris Copping, emphasized his (very accomplished) bass playing over the organ; consequently very little of that iconic Hammond organ sound was heard on Home and Broken Barricades; rather, they tended to feature Rob Trower’s bluesy electric guitar sound, along with Gary’s piano, as their lead instruments. The impact of Trower’s departure after Broken Barricades, although important, was felt less keenly, perhaps, as his replacements (the late, great Dave Ball for the live album, who was in turn replaced by the equally great Mick Grabham for four more. Trower’s departure also prompted the reinstatement of a full-time bass player in Alan Cartwright, freeing Copping to concentrate on organ).A different sound, to be sure; Broken Barricades is a recommended “forgotten” classic.

Dispensing with the art rock sound, Procul Harum delivers its strongest, most consistently pleasing album. From start to finish, the tracks rock hard, when not awash in Robin Trower's psychedelic brand of guitar work. Not a weak song in the bunch.

Broken Barricades is only worthwhile for the novelty value of an art rock group tackling heavy metal. It remains an excellent listen, boasting strong songwriting and impeccable performances, not to mention the band's best guitarwork ever captured on tape. While the album is highly intriguing as a historical curiosity, it's its creative melodies and clever arrangements that give it true value.
