This is a great album. Period. Great songs. Sixteen tracks.
I can't believe DAN LAUBER reviews saying that the songs has no melodies when you can find "3 patterns of melodies" for "EACH SONG" ... so, wash your ears fellah ! That's the HIGHLIGHT of the album: Melodies, and beautiful ones too. The lyrics are great as well. So Dan Lauber you can't say this is the worst album by the Kinks, you got it so wrong. I like though that you recommend "PRESERVATION act 1 & 2" which are my fave albums by the Kinks in the 70s... but anyways, Who is going to thank me in the morning is your wife ;-)
