Limited 180gm clear colored vinyl LP pressing housed in a gatefold sleeve. 1981 found The Kinks riding high. The band was a popular concert attraction and the bulk of their work from this period was perfectly suited to the broader gestures required in arenas. Ray Davies, never a man to shy away from irony, offers an album title that sounds like a directive. Yet opener "Around The Dial" stares squarely into the perceived dearth of meaningful fare on the contemporary airwaves and closer "Better Things," proved to be one of the Kinks' strongest, most evocative songs in years. Davies produced the album to blend smoothly with the era's sonic priorities and values - and although the drum sound is clearly a product of the times - the rich identity of the band is clearer and stronger than ever.
