This is a badly maligned album, partly because the CD reissues have added to/changed the original track order and stopped the tracks seamlessly merging into each other.

In its original form, this is the Kinks most consistent and coherent album, bar none.

This album should start with "Morning Song".

Are any of the individual songs as good as their best songs on other albums? No. Is the album consistently good and does it work as a whole? Yes.

The Kinks' albums were always all over the place, they had some brilliant songs but I challenge anyone to listen to the Pye albums and not think "WTF?" at some point. On this album they mastered the form.

It doesn't contain their very finest songs but it is their very finest album. If you liked Village Green you will find a lot to like here, I urge you to give it a go (but avoid Preservation Act 2 like the plague please).
