A fantastic band. Ray Davies songwriting was introspective, witty and humorous at the same time....but make no mistake about it, Dave's raw, aggressive guitar work is what gave The Kinks their signature sound. It is also what made them one of the biggest early influences on hard rock.

Davies was definitely the coolest songwriter of his generation. One of the few people in rock N roll that had a great sense of humor and remarkable observation.

Really don't hear any outstanding talent here, their nostalgic 60s tone seems to be all they really have going for them. None of the memorable tunes The Beatles, Stones or Zombies had, just all very passively enjoyable. Guitar really sounds as those it's been randomly played around a scale.

My favourite band ever, and I'm no NAPLES. Very sad to see Lola, which is not so good, and Muswell Hillbillies, which is "only" great, in front of Face To Face, which is an amazing masterpiece, though.

Shaking hands and exchanging a few words with Ray Davies is up there among the most vivid memories of my life.

The Kinks are an underrated 60s band... Funny thing is - their famous early work is not their best.
