Kinks is the self-titled debut album by English rock band The Kinks, released in 1964. It was released with three tracks omitted as You Really Got Me in the United States. The album was re-released in 1998 in the UK on Castle Records with twelve bonus tracks. This reissue was itself reissued in 2004 on the Sanctuary label.
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 Kink Kontroversy was Kontroversial indeed! (I guess). Mick Avory is hardly in this album only appears in three tracks while the rest a session musician takes over drum duty (Was Mick grounded" Was he injured"). Anyway that is not the point. What we have here is a very fine produced and consistent album. Ray Davies continues to write personal and introspective lyrics, however his vocals are not up to par as the previous albums. He sounds tired and uninspired at times and in some songs just depressed. But one of the reasons why this is considered a Klassic is the addition of legendary session keyboardist, Nicky Hopkins!
The Kinks transition from straight rock/pop/r&b into Ray Davies' classic pop-writing genius. Actually this is the final album of the former Kinks style as there is still plenty of rock/pop/r&b. But this album is soooo great from start to finish, a severe improvement over 'Kinda Kinks'. I'm not going to describe each track. I'll just say that it made me a Kinks fan. "Til the End of the Day" still rips and everything else is just so terrific. The pop of the Beatles, the rock of the Who, a little Stonesy blues swagger, but not much. The Kink Kontroversy continues to show artistic growth and the band's gelling cohesion as an album-oriented group. Plus it has their coolest album cover, by FAR, up to this point (including the EPs), as Sleater-Kinney would attest to years later. I would hesitate to call it an essential album, but it's easily the most impressive of their releases up to (but not including) their next album.
The Kinks is ranked number 71 in the overall artist rankings with a total rank score of 45,262. Members who like this artist also like: The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd. 2. Arthur (Or The Decline And Fall Of The British Empire).
The introspective, somewhat country tinged, "I Am Free," written by Ray but sung by Dave, shows signs of things to come in his style of writing. 'Til the End of the Day" not only stands right alongside Ray's classic riff-driven rockers, but ranks as one of his all time best. Released as a single just prior to the LP, it shot into the . Top 10. "I think "'Til the End of the Day" is one of my best songs," stated Ray in Kinks: The Official Biography. It's Too Late" and "What's in Store for Me" are the album's weakest tracks, mostly because they fail to break any new ground for the Kinks. The record ends with the nasty "You Can't Win," which features some great guitar work from Dave. All in all, The Kink Kontroversy showed the Kinks were no one-trick pony, and Ray's writing had expanded both lyrically and musically.
