4 stars Richard Sinclair jump starts this album with strong vocals, very interesting lyrics, sorta silly, this is a perfect Prog song, great way to open an album great keys...

#2. Longing There Trying::::::: great guitar into by Mr. Miller. by the start of the song you can tell this is going to be a very laid back mellow jazzy number... and that can also be said for the entire album...

#3 John Wayne Socks Psychology In The Jaw... Short jazzy intro into the psychdelic Chaos at the Greasy Spoon with an astounding bass performance by Sinclair... this song itself is an intro to ...

#5 The Yes No Interlude:::::::: To be honest this is an intense complex song that is almost hard to follow or hard to understand (?) Dave Stewart's influence on the album really makes itself present on this song. Semi-long-song almost 7min.

#7 Didn't Matter Anyway:::::::: Beautiful would be one word to describe it, very beautiful lyrics very Caravan sounding, Richard Sinclair's vocals are the best on this song including the flute by Jimmy Hastings with couldn't fit better with this tune.

Side Two

#8 Underdub::::::::Is an instumental that always reminds me of a warm up to the incredible Mumps... All musicians are in top form when playing on the 2nd half.

#9 Mumps::::::::::::This song is the masterpiece of the album, much like 9 feet under was for Caravan's In The Land Of Grey & Pink, this is a song that drifts you off into an through tha abyse, into the blue, get lost in the song, doing that will give you respect for this album...

Comparing the two Hatfield & North albums together, I can't say which one is better, both The Rotters' Club & Hatfiled And The North are both good and pretty musch equal when comparing the highlights of each album
