    From the inside, the band felt like it was in a state of turmoil, but from the outside the Kinks appeared to be handling the crazy culture of the late ‘60s with a great deal of aplomb.

    Ray Davies avoided psychedelic trends with his songwriting, opting instead to convey a nostalgic wistfulness for the way things were while bemoaning changes that spoiled his conception of what England stood for. It wasn’t a very popular sentiment at the time, but the songs lasted much longer than the times that inspired them.
