Kinks' The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society

«This detailed tome leads the reader through the often fraught construction of what is now regarded as Davies's [sic] masterpiece- and, like the best books of its ilk, it makes the reader want to either re-investigate the album or hear it for the first time.»

«This detailed tome leads the reader through the often fraught construction of what is now regarded as Davies's [sic] masterpiece- and, like the best books of its ilk, it makes the reader want to either re-investigate the album or hear it for the first time.»

Blender Magazine, October 2003

«Miller takes an in-depth look at the Kinks' nostalgic and autobiographical album, released in 1968 , at the worst possible time, when rock was all about rebellion and psychedelia...This is the sort of focus that my make you want to buy a copy, or dig out your old one.»

Rob Mackie, The Guardian

«A compelling portrait...Miller's insight into the album's thematic structure is as eloquent as any writing on The Kinks»

Philadelphia City Paper

«...this is a charming and valuable addition to the series.»

Joe Pettit, Ugly Things, Issue 25

«So thorough is Miller's survey of the period.»

Pop Culture Press

«Kinks commander Ray Davies once described the Beatles as "the boy next door only better." Miller notices this is a deeply autobiographical comment, and he's unquestionably in the tank for both that boy and that boy's nostalgia-driven magnum opus. But Miller tempers his enthusiasm with research, with and detailed-if-straightforward analysis of the songs, the time, the players and the fascinating history of the very English temperament that produced this most English of magnum opuses.»

Austin American-Statesman, Oct. 17, 2004

«One of the hallmarks of the 33 1/3 series is the track-by-track runthrough, during which the author proceeds, often in painstaking detail, to describe each song on a given album in order. Occasionally this can be redundant or tedious, but one of the first great examples is in Andy Miller’s book on the Kinks’ finest hour.»

Stephen M. Deusner, Pitchfork
