Why is it great? Complex, mature songwriting by not one but two writers: TWO SISTERS (about the sibling rivalry), DEATH OF A CLOWN (ironic, not maudlin, DAVID WATTS (wistful), SITUATION VACANT (fun, but not silly) and WATERLOO SUNSET (romantic).
Like the Beatles' masterpiece, REVOLVER, SOMETHING ELSE doesn't contain two songs that sound the same. Arrangements vary from one track to the next: Elizabethan harpsichord (TWO SISTERS) to bossa nova (NO RETURN) to pub singalong (HARRY RAG).
I never tire of this album and rank it among the top 10 records of the 60s.
This deluxe edition features the mono mix. I've heard the stereo and it's a toss-up regarding which is better. However, this package adds extra tracks that are worth the money. Packaging is first rate with decent liner notes and many graphics.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
A newcomer to this band looking up the Kinks on Amazon.com would, up until now, see this particular record---a record that begins with "David Watts," ends with "Waterloo Sunset" (before the bonus material starts), and doesn't flag between those two rather dizzy peaks---slapped with a two-star review. This could lead to unthinkable consequences. Someone might buy *Come Dancing* instead, base his or her opinion of the Kinks on THAT, and never experience the pleasure of hearing one of the best albums of 1967---a year that witnessed as many, or more, great albums than any other in rock history. Consumer warnings of the audiophile variety have their place, but it's important that buyers know where to start. Start HERE, with *Something Else*, whether this version, the Japanese version, or an 8-track. It is an album no serious collection should lack.
As for the music, I'll just second what's already been written. No album with songs like "Love Me Till the Sun Shines," "Waterloo Sunset," "Death of a Clown" and "David Watts" should be absent from any serious rock 'n' roll collection. Eight cool bonus tracks (including some Dave Davies solo singles and non-LP Kinks tracks), too.
