Overall better than their first album, not because that the songs are better but because the band sounds better. It lacks a really strong song as the first one tho.

Come on and So long are the best songs -IMO- just a little above the general level of the album. Tired of waiting maybe can be added to the best tracks list.

Kinda forgettable while at the same time a good effort for a brit R&B's 60s album.

The lightning quick follow up to their self titled debut album, Kinda kinks, picks up where that record left off. The LP features ten originals and two poor cover versions(naggin' woman, and, dancing in the street). Of the self penned tracks best are the acoustic, nothin' in the world, and classic single, tired of waiting for you. The rest is filler, nothing particularly good, although, so long, isn't too bad. It wasn't an album the Davies' were particularly happy with, Dave turns away from the camera on the record sleeve and Ray just looks embarrassed. The Kinks were a much better singles band than album band at this point. The best was definitely yet to come.

This album feels rushed. Not a good example of their early work.

An entire album full of nothing but filler (possibly with the exception of So Long). Good quality filler but still...
