Shootout at the Fantasy Factory is another great album by Traffic. The band continues the Low Spark LP in the vein of jammy numbers with some near progressive moments but Shootout is a much more introspective and contemplative affair. The 14 minute Roll Right Stones is a great tune and a stand out for me. I've read some lackluster reviews of this LP, which led me to wait a while before picking it up but I just don't see why this is. Shootout at the Fantasy Factory stands up with the rest of the magnificent Traffic discography. Yes, it's a little more melancholy, but they do it right. Great instrumentation, melody and performance.
