3 stars Three and a half stars would be an accurate rating for Welcome To The Canteen. The only drawback to this album is it is somewhat disjointed in it's collective delivery where ' Low Sparks' and ' Shoot Out Of the Fantasy..' are much more coherent and flow better. There are some great songs on Welcome To The Canteen and whilst typing this review, I know that a CD replacement is much needed to replace the worn vinyl and cassettes as the sound quality is shocking. " 40,000 Headmen" is a classic track and has all the ingredients of an epic Traffic sound. " Dear Mr. Fantasy" is equally as good and whilst I made mention of a disjointed flow to the album there is a definite upbeat and feel good factor to Welcome To The Canteen. Recommended for all Traffic enthusiasts, but get the CD version if you can.
