Album Review

Think Visual, the Kinks' first album for MCA Records, found Ray Davies continuing to crank out a series of competent hard rockers. Out of all the loud, riff-driven numbers, Dave Davies' "Rock N' Roll Cities" made the biggest impression.

Lost treasures

"Think Visual" may not rank amongst the Kinks' greatest albums, but it's a sleeper that always rewards repeat visits. "Rock 'n' Roll Cities," the single, doesn't bring much to the table apart from a lot of loud guitar and a chance for Dave Davies to get his rocks off. He fares much better with the lovely closer, "When You Were a Child," his best Kinks' song since "Death of a Clown" or at least "Living on a Thin Line." As for older brother (and lead songwriter/singer) Ray, he's in fine form throughout. Check out "Killing Time," "Natural Gift," "Lost and Found," the title track and especially "How Are You" -- all worthy picks for any Kinks playlist smart enough to dig deeper than the usual greatest hits.

lost and found

i used to listen to this album a lot when it was first released and it is decent although certainly not the best kinks or classic kinks. i highly recommend buying one track-- "lost and found" as i find this song inspiring and moving. "we were lost and found standing here looking at the new frontier..."

A few gems

The hit on this album was the Rock 'n' Roll Cities but another overlooked gem is Welcome to Sleazy Town. Ray's appreciation for a town that was both sleazy and wonderfully alive probably explains his adopting New Orleans as his hometown. Let's hope the corporations don't clean up NOLA as they did in fictional Sleazy Town. The poor man was stabbed there a few years ago, but, judging from his last album, his love for the city has not diminished.

Although they weren't as boldly innovative as the Beatles or as popular as the Rolling Stones or the Who, the Kinks were one of the most influential bands of the British Invasion. Like most bands of their era, the Kinks began as an R&B/blues outfit. Within four years, the band had become the most staunchly English of all their contemporaries, drawing heavily from British music hall and traditional pop, as well as incorporating elements of country, folk, and blues. Throughout their long, varied career,...
