Traffic is a band that your ether going to love or make you want to hurt people. I remember listening to this CD and my dad walked into the room, his exact words were God thats awful. That being said if you like late 60s classic rock Cream, Blind Faith, sound youll probably like Traffic. I particularly like this Traffic album over the rest for a single song, 40,00 Head men, which has some of the best lyrics Ive ever heard.

Here is the first verse:

Forty Thousand Head man couldn't make me change my mind if I had to take the choice between the deaf man and the blind. I know just where my feet should go and thats enough for me. I turned around and knocked them down and walked across the sea.
