Dave: No, that’s funny, I mean Ray is very secretive about his ideas — why not, the times that the Kinks have been ripped off, especially in the early years, it makes you a little bit cautious about telling anybody what you’re doing.

 Dave Davies
Throughout the Kinks’; 30-plus-year history, his ballsy guitar tone and strangled falsetto vocals were as necessary to the band as Ray’s brooding class consciousness and unassailable melodies.
Further evidence includes the gleeful snarl of "Love Me Till The Sun Shines" and the bratty reading of "David Watts" (Davies’ pre-teen-like wail is perfect for the schoolboy revenge fantasy), though the version of "You Really Got Me" is curiously flaccid.
There are also fine quieter moments, including "Tired of Waiting" (dedicated to Ray) and "Too Much on My Mind." Like his older brother, Davies has a tendency toward cheesy hard-rock-isms (see the silly sci-fi of "Psycho Lounge") and self-indulgence (there is no need for 27 tracks on this album).
