Early in my blogging career, I wrote a salute to Ray and the Kinks, who managed to produce the greatest pop music of the 1960s without ever really being part of that transcendental decade. I was nervous about his solo career. The last several years of the Kinks produced more embarrassment than glory. But the album he was coming out with then, Other People’s Lives, had several great songs, and no really bad ones. The above songs sound, if anything, stronger. Really glad he’s back, really fun to see him try to make some sense out of Regis and Kelly, who both seem like they’ve taken Tourette’s-inducing pills.
