When a Solution Comes This is another great song. I definitely hear the Harrisonesque vocals in the first section. I love how Dave’s guitar comes in so clean. The bridge or whatever it is around 1:40, just before the transition to the second half of the song is really well done. And I love the feeling and atmosphere of the second half too. As far as the darkness of the lyrics, this is not entirely new, and you can’t really this isn’t the Kinks. Remember these lyrics from 8 years earlier: The demon stretched its crinkled hand And snatched a butterfly The elves and gnomes were hunched in fear Too terrified to cry The reckoning was beckoning They're living to their doom There was no hope, no reasoning This rainy day in June Are today’s lyrics any more dark or gloomy or apocalyptic than this? I just think today’s are just a bit more specific in that this demon has a name, and that is Mr. Black. This is just another side of the Kinks, but it is all the Kinks. God save them!
