Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - p.86
4.5 stars out of 5 -- "Davies explodes as a songwriter, from the maybe-love-doesn't-suck ballad 'Something Better Beginning' to the no-actually-it-does ditty 'Nothin' in the World Can Stop Me Worryin' 'Bout That Girl.'"
Uncut - 11/01, p.112
3 stars out of 5 - "...A riveting monophonic portfolio of the brothers Davies in their fast, furious infancy..."
Record Collector (magazine) - pp.91-92
4 stars out of 5 -- "KINDA KINKS saw subtleties arrive with 'So Long' and the beautiful 'Tired Of Waitin' For You.'"

Peter Dogget describes pop music careers in 1964 England like this: "[U]nless you were Cliff Richard or the Beatles you were likely to be forgotten within 12 months of your first hit." This album was initially intended as a way to cash in on the primal magic of "You Really Got Me" before the Kinks got too stale for the fickle youth. However, history would show that this tidy R&B combo had one of the most inventive and creative bandleaders in '60s and '70s rock & roll in Mr. Ray Davies.
This reissued, remastered version of the band's eponymous debut--complete with 12 bonus tracks, including the previously unreleased Davies composition "I Don't Need You Anymore"--may not hold up to the high level of The Kinks' groundbreaking work over the decade. But there are hints that Davies would become one of the most unusual and melodic songwriters of a generation. One listen to "Just Can't Go To Sleep" and it's clear the die was cast: Davies had a voice all his own. Dedicated fans will certainly enjoy THE KINKS, but this fine reissue would also be of interest to connoisseurs of young, white R&B on the order of the early Who and Rolling Stones.
