Good but Poor by Kinks Standards,
This review is from: Think Visual (Audio CD)
The Kinks were in chaos when they went in to Konk Studios to record the album that preceded this one, and despite all that Word Of Mouth is a very good album, this however is a more patchy effort. Firstly it was recorded mid 80s; Lost and Found has a dreadful eighties keyboard sound, but there are some good songs on here. The second weakness of this album is that it was mastered using first generation CD mastering, which makes it sound a bit dead. I think that a good remastering would turn this into a much more satisfying album' I wonder why this, UK Jive and Phobia have not been remastered. Phobia in particular was a worthy, if neglected swan song for a fine band and UK Jive is a much better collection of songs than is generally recognised. Don't be tempted to pay inflated prices for any of these albums from profiteers just wait for the inevitable official remasters that are bound to appear in the near future.
