I have always been a Kinks fan ever since I heard L-O-L-A LA LA LA LOLA and "Come Dancing" re-inforced my appreciation for this group. Word of Mouth furhered my respect and admiration for this group..what an awesome album. "Do it again" is my Fav track off this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars kinks for kinks June 29 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
You know, my uncle Curtis just love this album, but he have it on record and not cd. To me and my sister it sound kind of lame but he play it so much we just get used to listening to it. He won't let us play Staind or Puddle of Mudd or even my sisters Sugar Ray cd's. He gets depressed when we try to turn him on to new music. He even says: there is no good music past 1985. But my uncle live in a time warp. He puts tin foil on the windows to keep the sun from coming in. Me and my sitser stay at his house on weekend and we order pizza but my uncle doesn't have a lot of money so he buy his pizza from Al's Supa-Dupa Pizza downtown and it is made with cheap ingredents but he doesn't want us to starve and he tells Caitlyn: you don't want to get anorexia. He thought she was bolemic one night but she actually just got really sick on the Al's. My uncle listens to this album on Sunday morning because he say it makes him happy. The first song, "Do It Again" is the one that he is always lipsinking to with an upside down screwdriver. He never gets all the words right but its funny to watch his face when he sings along. He never shaves on the weekend and he goes around the house wearing a blue bathrobe that my other uncle gave him ten years ago. He loves that bathrobe. He turns up his Kinks really loud and the cat goes bonkers when my uncle Curtis get out his kazoo and tries to play along with the stero. But my uncle is really not very good on kazoo and the cat gets very angry. The cat jump on the table and slid across the newspapers and landed back on the floor again. But only after he spill my uncle's juice and it got in the carpet and my uncle got so mad at the cat. Every time my sister go outside to talk on her cellphone my uncle yells at her: don't let the cat go out- he will never come back! Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Record, Awful Artwork Sept. 4 2003
Format:Audio CD
Seriously. This is one of the least attractive album covers I've ever seen. Why would anyone pick this up unless they were a Kinks fan already? Major misstep by the Brothers Davies.
The record itself is good, if not great. It boasts Dave Davie's second best song, "Living on a Thin Line," a paen to the middle class and poor stuck in an economy that increasingly favors the rich, and "Good Day," a bit of Ray Davies whimsy that is clever fun until the biting bridge ("So have a good day today, because it may be your last, make it last..."). Not to mention a bunch of good-but-typical Ray Davies social observations ("Too Hot," "Do It Again," "Sold Me Out," et al).
Musically, it's early '80's Kinks. Smooth, textured, with the most passion coming through in the vocals rather than the music. It's a bit keyboard heavy, but that's ok. I personally prefer a rawer sound, but that's me.
It's definitely worth your time if you're a budding fan, still worthy if you like good songwriting, but ultimately expendable if you're looking for something that will jump-start your psyche.
To be fair, I think that Ray Davies was trying to get on the radio, the bland medium that we all listen to too often (and I was a DJ for 7 years, so I know whereof I speak).
If you look past the slickness and the worst album cover in my collection, you'll find a nice bunch of songs. A couple are special, one or two are expendable, but this is mostly a nice little collection by a band pushing its way through middle age.
All that said, I still like it and it's a fun little rocker of an album...good pop sometimes, a couple of bits of should-have-been-rawer nastiness, but still pretty damn groovy. A worthy effort.

3.0 out of 5 stars a die hard Kinks fan finds little to cheer about April 30 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album was the last good effort from the Kinks and was definitely the beginning of the end for the band. Although Do It Again and Livin' On A Thin Line were both great songss there is little else worthy of more than a cursory listening. I am a die hard Kinks fan. I saw them on the Word Of Mouth tour and a couple tours after it. Get this one at auction or a used cd, spend the money on Give the People What They Want and the live One From The Road for the best of the Kinks from this era.

5.0 out of 5 stars What More Do You Want? Aug. 27 2000
Format:Audio CD
How utterly frustrating and baffling it is to me when people try to say that Word of Mouth is just "OK." I am only twenty years old, so I am most certainly no Kink apologist from the 60's. I am, however, a kid who really does know his music, and a kid who loves great rock n roll. I know what great rock n roll is. I own about 50 Dylan albums, 30 Neil Youngs, many Tom Petty albums, Stones albums, Beatles albums. let's face it, if it wasn't born in the 60's, it just isn't really rock n roll, but rather an imitation or step-child of the genre's glory days.
On that note, I'd like to just ask: who in the world can honestly claim that they expected the Kinks to be consistently releasing albums in the early 1980's? The only man who thought it was possible for the Kinks-a 60's hard rock band whose most memorable music was recorded within a five-year span-to even garner anything close to that sort of recognition in a decade that seemed to make a point of forgetting rock music's past, was Ray Davies. Let's think, where were others in 1984? Neil Young was recording electronica and rockabilly records that sold about as well as the last Billy Idol album, Dylan was releasing born-again Christian rock albums and singing in a slurred, alcoholic drawl that seemed to alienate just about every one of his fans, Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison were long-dead and forgotten, and The Rolling Stones were not just a shell of themselves, they were downright embarrassing to watch. Then there were the Kinks, and this brilliant, yes, I said brilliant, rock album of 1984.
There is absolutely nothing hyperbolic about saying that the Kinks did everything right on this record, they did everything within their power to deliver the most stunning collection of rock singles possible.

In the 1980s, the Kinks became a singles band, even if many of the singles were not huge hits. Starting with the breakthrough album "State of Confusion," they surrounded... Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars A solid, but unspectacular record
I think the other reviewers here are wildly overrating this album. It certainly has its good moments (as any Kinks record does), but there is a lot of uninspired stuff, also. Read more

I think Word Of Mouth is a great album. I like the opening (Do It Again), but my favourite song of all time is Sold Me Out. It sounds like a punk record. Read more
