The Kinks - Village Green Preservation Society (Deluxe Edition)

Il y a des groupes dont on ne sait que piocher dans la carrière pour signifier leur talent. Les Kinks sont de ceux-là. Et Ray Davies est sans doute le seul musicien anglais à avoir, à l'époque, rivalisé d'inventivité créatrice avec Brian Wilson. Ces deux-là ont en commun l'obsession des compositions et des arrangements allié à un certain sens du pilotage, et la parenté semble évidente entre les Pet Sounds, Smiley Smile ou Wild Honey des Américains et ce Village Green Preservation Society, LA symphonie de Ray Davies. Entreprise titanesque, tant au niveau de l'écriture que des arrangements, ce disque sera aussi le plus bel échec commercial du groupe. Trop ambitieux ? Sans doute, si l'on considère la somme d'heures passées en studio... Négligé par la maison de disque ? Sûrement, elle qui considérait avant tout les Kinks comme un groupe à singles (rôle qu'ils remplissaient d'ailleurs sacrément bien)... Et Ray Davies de leur prouver définitivement le contraire! Dites, c'est où, le village vert ? Oh! c'est par là, un petit peu à côté du temps...

I felt that albums needed to take a new direction, and
not just be a collection of singles with a few throwaway
tracks. I wanted Village Green to be a statement.
Ray Davies

Even though I own this, I just have to comment anyhow. This is one of the greatest records of all time, definitely top ten on my list. Something Else is a really great record. If anybody out there has not heard Village Green, now is your chance. Make sure to thank the Dr. with a nice comment.
