Continuing the harder rock sound that they stared in the late 1970's with "Low Budget", but mixed with more melodic tracks to give quite a diverse sounding album.
A lot of time & effort has gone into each of songs on the record, certainly the band are not just going through the motions, with "Drift away", "Only a Dream" & "Scattered" which all should be considered bonafide Kinks classics. Added to that, the usual curious subject matter for the songs (have you car stolen, trying to stop a man jumping off a building) you get real fascinating listen (although at 16 songs, it is quite a long album, but it would be difficult to decide what tracks to drop).
The release date says 2015, but it's actually 1993, Columbia are trying suddenly to shift a whole load these CDs, but the sound quality is still good, but it was only released in 1993 so it shouldn't need re-mastering.
There is always talk of the brothers getting back together again (it's usually Dave Davis who turns down the invite) but if this is going to be the final Kinks record, then they've finish on a high.
BUT don't be fooled. This IS the old release, through the extra track may not have been available in all markets back in the early 1990s. When it arrived, When I noticed there was nothing on it saying '2015', I nearly sent it back. Then I decided to open it and have a listen, and certainly wasn't disappointed.
The good news is that it's a very reasonable price, and the album still sounds great. It certainly didn't need a 'block wave' remaster, which would've ruined it anyway.
So it's nothing more than a REISSUE; take note.
Another fine album from the Davies boys- OK, the hard rock is not everyones cup of tea, but lyrically Ray is on top form and the Duet with Dave is just fantastic. Scattered, Still Searching, and the brilliant Informer are other highlights which any other band would have been proud of....sometimes we expect too much from our heroes

A couple of very good tracks on this uptempo rocky album not typical of The Kinks. Far from their best work but still worth a listen.Published 5 months ago by Amazon Customer

A Great Buy.
