Rotations

But that's not why the Castle reissue of this long-gone benchmark is worth the higher import price. Nope, it's for two of the seven bonus cuts: "This Is Where I Belong" and "I'm Not Like Everybody Else." On the former, a beautiful love song, the band comes up with an astonishing amalgam of their own garage rock and the folk-tinged stuff Bob Dylan was perfecting with Highway 61 Revisited. The latter, written by Ray's guitar-playing brother Dave Davies, is a swaggering, prepunk anthem of identity, rebellion, and self-purpose -- just the kind of thing the Kinks would all but abandon in their search for the perfect rock opera.

-- John Floyd
