By the time of this, its eighth album, in 1974, Procol Harum had weathered the departure of several key members. The band's previous release, GRAND HOTEL, was its first after the departure of guitarist Robin Trower. EXOTIC BIRDS & FRUIT is a more polished affair and a return to form for the band.
The songs by pianist/singer Gary Brooker and lyricist Keith Reid possess the thrilling tensions that result from combining grandeur and lushness with R&B-based soulfulness. As always, drummer B.J. Wilson is a powerful yet unassuming presence, with a signature style that adds just the right amount of flair to the propulsiveness. The set is full of memorable songs, including the powerful opening number, "Nothing But the Truth," the cabaret-like "Beyond the Pale," and the anthemic and relentless "The Idol."
