It really is the best of...,
This review is from: You Really Got Me - The Best Of (Audio CD)
If you like the kinks, then you probably already have this album. If you don't, then buy it quick. It contains all their best (and most famous) songs.
If you don't think you know who the kinks are, or any of their works, your probably wrong. Their songs have been covered many times, and even the bad covers are normally quite good. Combine that with advert soundtracks, and you've probably heard all the songs on the album already.
As for the songs themselves, they are all classics. From the cheery happiness of Sunny Afternoon to the total gender bending ridiculousness of Lola, from the upbeat bounciness of Dedicated Follower of Fashion to the utter brilliance of Waterloo Sunset, the songs are all superb.
In a word, the kinks were great. To find a best of which actually contains a lot of good songs is rare. To find one from a band who influenced so many others is even rarer. Buy it now
