Something tells me they could have saved everyone the trouble and instead of two albums just released one double album since we are talking about music that came from the same sessions. Of course, there is one shining exception - Hopkins' piano ballad "Spindrifter", which is so clear, concise, and thoughtful it doesn't deserve its' place on this greasy QMS record. Valenti and crew are trying to further refine their hippie/soul/groove thing, but too often the basic ideas weren't that great. The us-against-the-world title track was an admirable try, however.
