Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 9/3/70, p.42
"...Trower has stepped in and is truly playing lead guitar...an atmospheric, Hendrix-style wailing, screeching assault...Gary Brooker hasn't lost any of his vocal charisma..."
Rolling Stone - 9/3/70, p.42
"...Highlights here include the violent 'Still There'll Be More'...down to the expansive, image-taut 'Whaling Stories' that culminates wondrously in the last four lines, as the song shalimars onto a whole different level of meaning..."

The fourth album by Procol Harum was released as the band was in the midst of a significant shift. With the departure of organist Matthew Fisher, guitarist Robin Trower stepped more to the fore. The two-keyboard approach was still being utilized, with singer Gary Brooker's piano being joined on some selections by the organ playing of multi-instrumentalist Chris Copping. However, the stately grandeur that had been previously applied with grace and subtlety gave way to a band that rocked much harder.
HOME is the work of a changed but still very compelling Procol Harum. Just compare this album's opening track, "Whiskey Train," to title-track opener on the band's previous album, A SALTY DOG. Orchestral epics largely give way to bluesy riffing, but as the album rolls along the familiar characteristic strains, both sonic and lyrical, offer a full dose of Procol Harum's dark and symphonic sensibilities.
