4 stars This is it! Traffic finally came ofage with John Barleycorn Must Die. What happened was it Mason's departure that helped bring these genius musicians to the fore? Whatever it was, it was an astonishing transformation from their previous works. ' Glad' for me my personal favourite on the album but the title track served as a typical melancholic ballad if you like with classic Winwood vocals. The Capaldi and Wood contributions are equally strong on this album. There is not a bad track amongst them and John Barleycorn hit the vintage sound just at the right time when creative output was at an all time high.
