4 stars Talk about slipping unnoticed under the radar! This is one fine album that I somehow missed when it was released in the mid 90s. It has the excellent sound and fidelity of Steve's solo efforts but the songs are much longer and allowed to expand and breathe creatively. Capaldi's drums are very good and the percussion is well-placed and lively. And there's really not a throwaway song on the cd to my ears. The Uillean pipes add a wonderful aura to "Holy Ground" that I've not experienced in a long time and Winwood's vocals are better than ever throughout, especially on the haunting "State of Grace." This is more like what I expected from the disappointing "About Time" project Steve is into right now. I found that cd to be way too predictable and unimaginative, whereas this album gets better with every listen. If you missed it (like I did) don't continue to overlook this little gem. It's a great listen and a must for every fan of Traffic.
