So, yea, I’ve been doing this album thing for five years now and I’ve only just got around to listening to a Beatles record. If I’m honest, I’ve been avoiding them because the Beatles aren’t my favourite. They’ve got a lot of good, classic songs, obviously, and we know they’re super important to the music world, but mostly, they’re just not my thing.

I don’t know why I wasn’t expecting to like this one that much, as I already thought Irish Son was a great song and I’ve loved Almost Here with Delta Goodrem since I first heard it. The rest of the album totally stacks up - although I have to admit to not being surprised Guy Chambers had his hands all over it.

I don’t know what I was expecting of this but I really liked it! The Kinks, as a concept, confuse me because many of their songs are so timeless, you feel like they could be released today and still fit in perfectly. So it sort of boggles my mind that they’re of the sixties. But then you hear something like Cadillac and they slot right back into place again.

I love this album, not quite as much as the first from The Calling but really good. The first half I know very well, from a time when I would start listening to albums and get bored halfway through. So the first half is stacked full of tunes, and the second half, whilst it tails off for me, is still really good.

Before listening to this one, there was a little debate over whether it counted in the album game. I have weird rules that bend and mutate over time, but the fact that this album contains a significant amount of previous songs was an issue. They’re live, so that’s different, and in the end I allowed it because this is clearly an album that they have worked and crafted as a piece of art.
