I am rather severe with this album but , at that time, Traffic's third album was almost posthumous and man, does it ever sound like it. Mason had gone for the second (or is it third ) time , leaving the band in total distress with moral forces very low and down to a trio.

Not everything is bad on this album, though: the first side is full of almost usual Traffic tracks in the line of the first two albums (very psychy) but gradually slightly more progressive. Side 2 is two long tracks recorded live with IMO a poor sound and generally over-indulging solos. As to make you know that this was almost throw away stuff and the title tells you that the band was gone.

In such , while relatively poor by Traffic standarts , this album is not bad at all , but should only please confirmed fans. Start elsewhere if you want to investigate them.
