Customer Review

on 18 May 2009
A much under-rated album that stands the ravages of time very well and retains a contemporary sound. Less folk-influenced than other Traffic albums, with some funky beats, "afro" combo and jazzy rhythms (Shoot Out... & Tragic Magic), laid back jazz (Roll Right Stones/ Tragic Magic) which blend well with the much more bluesy and soulful tracks (Evening Blue and Uninspired). The result is a timeless and polished contemporary rock sound. The songs, the production and musical expertise stand up very well.

There are still some folk and even classical strains, but the album is certainly quality rock that is easy to listen to, ambiental and fluid, and mood-creating. Some critics rated the album at the release time as "uninspired" (references to the track on the album). However, there are no duff tracks and had the title track from the previous album "Low Spark of High-Heeled Boys" been on this album - it would have blended in here without a problem - then the album would have probably been much more highly rated!

Quality material! Traffic at their best & certainly, well worth a listen!
