View Full Version : The Kinks: :The Later Years
02-08-2008, 06:27 AM
A quick question to all Kinks fans:
I still have quite a lot of their earlier classic stuff that I need to check out but I'm interested to know what the consensus is of their music post-Muswell Hillbillies. I have heard some of their later day songs like Do It Again and Misfits but I haven't heard the best things about their later albums.
Any opinions? Suggestions?

If you're a Village Green/Arthur fan, you'll always find something to love at least up through the 1980s. They never stopped making good songs, they just didn't make great albums anymore, and became a lesser band for it.

Low Budget, One More For The Road, and Give The People What They Want are all great rock and roll records that saw Ray Davies and the Kinks looking to stretch their musical horizons. While they are certainly different from previous Kinks albums they are in no way lesser Kinks albums.

(Wish I Could Fly Like) Superman is a great 80's underated classic rock tune by the KINKS.

Low Budget, One More For The Road, and Give The People What They Want are all great rock and roll records...Seconded. Especially that last one. Very, very strong.
I haven't heard all of them, but the last of their records I remember liking to listen to all the way through was Sleepwalker, which I haven't heard for years, come to think of it. After that, it was mostly the scattered few good tracks on each album. Misfits, for example, I think was the only song I liked on that album, but it was a great one.

Misfits is one of my favorite albums that I don't really listen to anymore.
It has ups and downs, but overall it's quite good. Other than that I don't have much experience with the Kinks.
