4 stars This album is one of Traffic's greatest records, with such classic songs like Glad and the title track. Steve Winwood's wit shines once again. However, one major grievance I have with this album is that some of the tracks are poorly mixed, especially Glad. Some of the songs are great, like the two I mentioned plus Stranger to Himself, but the others are just good. Every Mother's Son is a bit boring, notably, but other than that, Traffic remain consistently entertaining and jazzy throughout. The most I can say about this album is that there's no moment that stands out, because all of the songs sound relatively similar - still, consistency matters.
