I only know singles by the kinks, which are good, how does an entire album hold up, interested in what is their best complete album, this sounds pretty complete to me

I think a lot of guys would suggest The Village Green Preservation Society but my favorite is Lola vs. Powerman and the Moneygoround. Instrumentally and lyrically it's brilliant.

Digging: Estas Tonne - Internal Flight

it's pretty impossible for me to pick my very favorite kinks record, I go back and forth too often with them. all I can say is they have a handful of albums that hold up extremely well outside of the singles.

I think Lola vs. Powerman is a definite highlight as well though. it's a concept album and more creative than this one or village green. same goes for Arthur (or the decline and fall of the british empire). I think Muswel Hillbillies is really underrated as well, but wouldn't start with that one

Digging: Oso Oso - Basking in the glow

Yeah, I actually hadn't heard that song until I listened to this album either. But one of the greatest songs of all time for sure.

great record! Every little song bears a distinctive influence (bossa nova on "No Return", Donovan-like psychedelia on "Lazy Old Sun"...) and Waterloo Sunset is the icing on the cake, one of the best pop songs ever. A thoroughly enjoyable listen.
