1979's LOW BUDGET became The Kinks' biggest selling release since their GREATEST HITS album of 1966. This was due in large part to constant touring and significant airplay of such singles as "(Wish I Could Fly Like) Superman"). This period followed an era of concept albums and saw Ray Davies returning to the craft of separate, simpler songs. One of the album's highlights is the quietly engaging "Little Bit Of Emotion."
Davies alternates between being a romantic and a social commentator, though LOW BUDGET stresses the later aspect of his songwriting. The streamlined arrangements, loud guitars, and loud drums of LOW BUDGET are in keeping with the sound of the previous (SLEEPWALKER and MISFITS) and future (GIVE THE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT, STATE OF CONFUSION, and WORD OF MOUTH) Kinks albums.
