1. Always loved this album. It has lots of great songs--pointedly not "Money Talks," which, for some reason, the band flogged endlessly, in concert and on TV--and the announcements and such seemed no different from and no sillier than the odd bits and histrionic moments on other concept albums. "There's a doctor I've found can cuuuuure, the boy!..." The Preservation story is both simplistic and incoherent--which isn't an easy combination to pull off--but I don't think about it. I skip "Flash's Confession" and enjoy practically everything else. 2. I enjoy the female vocals, which are, in a very Kinks-appropriate manner, sometimes endearingly flat. Or sharp. Or something. 3. The album sounds fantastic. Such bass! 4. Someone named Ogmios has posted three ASMR Dashcam videos on YouTube, which I highly recommend. They are just his commentary on what he sees out his front window as he does "Zen motoring" around Lond0n. Very sweet. In episode 2, at about 6:40, he comes upon some young Purim revelers. I can't help thinking how Mr. Flash they look.
