Lost and Found and How are you are great songs.

Ray Daves is a genius. Dave Davies is also a great riff maker. Like Like. Thanks for the feedback, Alvaro. I also agree that Dave is one of the best riff makers of all time.

The Lp starts with "Working at the factory", lovely lyrics about ".. Lost and foud in a mid slow one, so classic by the Kinks, and the beautiful words brings outta space!

These are my fave. Thinkg that the other songs are weak is a mistake, Ray is always able to paint reality in his romantic point view, other time is able to give the cynical point of view to reality. Lovely , and Dave sings too in his own one. It's a great LP, one of my fave by the Kinks. Maseman66 , Jan 24, Location: hollywood. Location: NYC. I saw the Kinks a bunch of times when they were touring in support of this album. Ray had some big concept in his head for this one, but he never really thought it through.

I remember that the concert had girl dancers, costume changes, and some video screens or small TV screens , but I really couldn't make out what was going on. Ray also wanted to make a whole film of his concept, but I don't think that went anywhere either. I didn't hate the album, but it really didn't do anything for me. I always enjoyed the Kinks in concert, even these shows, but I would only recommend the album to Kinks Kompletists.

My dad is a lifelong Stones devotee, but The Kinks are probably not too far behind. With all those 60s bands, the classics were always there, but each new release also got a lot of airplay on our stereo and in the car. Please enable JavaScript in your browser to use the site fully.

Aggressive Bittersweet Druggy. Energetic Happy Hypnotic.

But don't expect to hear the Kinks talking tough like that on the airwaves – "Rock 'n' Roll Cities," the first single from Think Visual, is anything but a gutsy statement. This utterly uninspired tour song – written by Dave Davies around a woefully tired riff – engages in the worst sort of rock hucksterism.

    Think Visual, the band's first album for MCA Records, represented an artistic dead end for the Kinks, as Ray Davies continued to crank out a series of competent, but undistinguished hard rockers. Out of all the loud, riff-driven numbers, only Dave Davies ' "Rock N' Roll Cities" made a lasting impression. Ray's gentler songs weren't among his most memorable, relying on slight melodies and underdeveloped 4/
