5 stars For me, Traffic is not the typical band in the "prog rock genre", definitely not the early incarnation with Dave Mason on board. On this album, as well as the debut, we found a band more connected to the underground or "psychedelic" movement. But one can notice a more straight approach on the second album. The instumentation is not that extravagant and the tunes are more catchy and direct.

The album's opener as well as "Feelin' Alright?" is classic Mason, songs that maybe some of the other members of the band found to straight. But the mixture between the Mason direction and the Winwood/Capaldi contributions is what makes this album such a true gem. One of Traffic's strongest efforts!
