5.0 out of 5 stars you won't regret it, 24 Feb. 2012
This review is from: The Village Green Preservation Society (Audio CD)
Fact: The Kinks are the most conservative of the British Invasion bands. Why else would they write albums about preserving tradition and the village greens and a lot of other British stuff? It's a cute approach, and something their peers wouldn't have tried. It would have been career suicide. In a time when all the bands were trying to be hip and edgy and all-out liberal, the Kinks were content with sipping their tea in a corner and creating a timeless masterpiece like `Village Green Preservation Society'
It doesn't matter if you're not British (like me), this album feels cozy and warm. It takes you back to simpler times, you know, going to Church on Sunday, eating jam and having an imagination.
Frankly, it deserves top marks just for the nostalgia factor, but the songs are kick-ass too. Buy this album, you won't regret it.

I Love the kinks massively, but your review makes their great album sound very boring. It isn't at all, nor is it conservative. Just because it's not overtly political doesn't make it conservative.
