Misfits is my personal favorite Kinks album! Offerings of wit, humor and charm can be found on Misfits, picking up where Sleepwalker left off and pointing to where Low Budget would be headed, as the Kinks once again came of age in the late 70's. The opening track, Misfits, paints the picture of personal introspection, with Ray Davies' candor recognizing his individual quirks and song writing talent, while also feeling dismayed over the lost opportunities. "This is your chance, this is your time, so don't throw it away, you can have your day, cause it's true what they say every dog has his day". It's as if Ray Davies was having a premonition of the popularity the Kinks were about to enjoy, while also well aware of the many good years of music the Kinks had already provided us. Rock and Roll Fantasy is song with perfect tempo and lyrics, inviting the listener to visualize the typical fan's dream world, and is further comment on the Kinks' own destiny. The songs on Misfits, like the best Kinks songs, grap ahold of the listener and entertain you on several levels, as the music and words tell a story. Younger listeners, who usually don't listen to the words, anyway, will miss the gift of Misfits, and the Kinks music in general, but For Those Who Have Ears To Hear this is a Kinks' album you don't want to miss.
