I love, love this band!!! Yet I have a hard time trying to find ways to convince other people of this band's genious (especially the Davies bros). This 2 disc set brilliantly captures the magic of The Kinks and is the best place to start if you want to get into this band.

Pete Townshend, of The Who, said once that he wished he was as good a songwriter as Ray Davies of The Kinks. Individual Who, or Beatles, or almost any great group's songs are more stirring than these. But there is a consistency here -- a hatred of where the modern world is going, and a ferocious skill for tunefulness -- where Davies has carved out a fragile, amazing niche of his own.
