Format: Audio CD
The Kinks were enjoying a second wind once signing with Arista in the mid-1970s after some spotty recordings earlier in the decade. "Sleepwalker" (1977) and "Misfits" (1978) showed the band getting tighter and stronger and the material Ray Davies was writing was approaching some of his best, but nothing could prepare fans for "Low Budget". True to the title the Kinks were at their most stripped down, spontaneous and playful in years. With punk on the ascent Ray Davies figured if you can't join 'em, beat 'em and delivered some of his brashest songs in years. Ostensibly an album about the USA it's Ray at his observational best with songs focusing on relations both personal and global.
The opening blast of "Attitude" really sets the stage as Dave cranks up his guitar and Ray lets rip with a stinging critique on a deserving fool with the wrong mindset. By the end things settle down and Ray is encouraging us all to "take off your headphones, see what's going on." "Catch Me Now I'm Falling" is a poignant plea from Captain America down on his knees that sadly is as poignant today as it was then. "Pressure" and "National Health" turns the perspective inwards towards dealing with pressure and exercise albeit with great chugging guitar and a can't-help-but-sing-along chorus on "Pressure" and an oddly loopy but catchy beat on "National Health". Next up is "Superman" which literally seems to divide Kinks fans into two camps; love it or see it as the Disco Sellout. Personally I love it and it's the song that hooked me into buying the LP back then and I love the hilarious lyric "I'd like to fly but I can't even swim". As far as rock-meets-disco it's certainly not "Miss You" by the Stones but I've certainly heard worse!
