One of the most creative and enigmatic britrock albums ever. Its remarks on english life in the 60s are in depth yet well hidden, and the musicianship is off the charts. Definitely a record to not be forgotten.

BEST TRACKS: Do You Remember Walter?, Picture Book, Animal Farm, Johnny Thunder, Sitting by the Riverside, Monica

Funny that Face to Face, Something Else by, and Arthur have so few scores 'cause they are all classic albums.

Gonna just throw this out there...

IMO The Rolling Stones > The Kinks > The Beatles

yup yup.

On to this album. The most widely recognized album from the classic 4 album run of back half 60's magic. Some great songs on here, no doubt, but personally this is my least favorite of the 4 (that just tells you how much I love the other 3).

Well, the last song is one of the most "visionary" songs I've ever heard, The Kinks predicted the selfies and smartphones...
