3 stars Interesting to read some mixed reviews on When The Eagle Flies. It is important to note that while it was the last of the 70's albums to be released, Traffic did reform to release Far from Home in 1994. Many though view this as the last Traffic album.... Anyway overall this is a pretty solid release from Traffic. There are nuances to all that they did great before like ' Dream Gerard', almost 12 minutes of jazzy jamming riffs and the other highlight for me ' Walking In The Wind'. Gee on bass does an amiable job, all the normal usual suspects doing what they do best. One can understand why Traffic took a long hiatus after this as they may have been running low on ideas but it is still a very good album and is highly recommended.
