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. Or you could just read my 9-part series and pick the albums that sound the most appealing. Like Liked by 2 people. Add Review johnnypiatto68 August 23, Report. 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.

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.
