    Love your choices. However, even though Better Things is in my Kinks' top ten songs, it's from 1981.

    Nice choices. I don't know Permanent Waves off the top of my head but I love the other ones.

    From reading your posts seems you hold the Kinks in very same high regard as I.

    Chronologically:

    Life On The Road
    Sleepwalker
    Brother
    Stormy Sky
    Rock & Roll Fantasy

    ...um I really, really love the Sleepwalker album.

    Also love Misfits & Low Budget albums but they have fewer faves of mine.

    Honourable mentions to One For The Road live versions of:

    Prince Of The Punks (much better than the tepid studio version);
    Til The End Of The Day (Kinks go reggae, sort of);

    cheers

    PS great thread ideas bvb1123!

    Really like this era of the Kinks. My honourable mentions are "Hidden Quality"- shame the vocal sounds like a rough take in the verses and that Ray didn't do a retake but there is a really promising song in there and "The Poseur" one of The Kinks funniest songs.

    I agree it’s a tough period. I suspect 80-87 is gonna be easier.
    I just heard this today and I forgot it existed.
