Am I the only one who considers Something Else as a bit of letdown after Face To Face? I mean, it's good, but even Lola is nearly as good as an album. Something Else has some classics, for sure, like Harry Rag or Waterloo Sunset, but No Return/Funny Face/Two Sisters are a bit too weak. Too fillerish. And melodically poor.

The Kinks were a great band without a doubt, one of my favourite, very talented.
I really like Lola, Waterloo sunsets, Days, You really got me, Tired of waiting, but most of their songs are great, very varied musically.

Love the Kinks! Unfortunately, so does everyone else, so the record stores are always picked clean of their albums before I can find any...

I have been a huge Kinks fan since grade school (I'm 71) - and probably liked them more than The Beatles and Rolling Stones. Here lately I've been going back over all the albums in order, and creating a detailed survey - I'm in the process of reading several books on the Kinks and their music.

I am surprised how well the music has held up. I've always enjoyed Something Else the most (my vote) mainly because of the song "Waterloo Sunset", which I consider one of the greatest songs ever written. But Face to Face and Muswell Hillbillies were also early favorites.

With my current re-listening I have come to greater appreciation of Village Green Preservation Society, Everybody's in Showbiz also Arthur and Lola which were albums I owned but for some reason never listened to them closely.
