The Kinks were active for over three decades between 1964 and 1996, releasing 28 regular albums in the UK (24 studio, four live), and 30 in the USA (24 studio, four live, two compilation), where the early albums were slightly different from the British albums partly due to the method that publishing royalties were calculated in the two countries, partly due to difference in popularity of the extended play format (the UK market liked it, the US market didn't, so US albums had the EP releases bundled.

The Kinks retreat to the English countryside, which turns out to be just as twisted and frightening as the city. While other bands were getting far out, man, the Kinks were singing pastoral reveries like Animal Farm. Big Sky is an unsentimental ode to a Mother Nature who doesn’t care if you live or die; Picture Book is the best photo-album song of the pre-Taylor Swift era, except it’s a cheerful ditty about how we all grow old and die alone . The band had no idea this album got released until they noticed it was in the Billboard charts and sued to get it pulled. Typical Kinks-even when they fluked into a hit, it meant something was wrong.
