There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The packaging is not the best, but it is decent. I know some people have had issues with Amazon shipping this, but for me it came in great shape and packaged pretty good.
The set does seem a little flimsy, which sucks, but I got over.
At the end of the day, as long as the music sounds good that is all that matters.
I have heard a few original albums and liked what I heard. (I'm only 33).
I put on Face to Face to start with to compare an original to this one. I was pretty blown away with the sound. The new recordings sound fresh and like they have a bit more life.
I haven't heard everything, but I really can't wait. Village Green sounded amazing and full, as did Kinda Kinks.
The set is priced a bit high in my mind for how cheap it feels, but it's a lot of work to get these recordings sounding this good and I am fine with that. (Conflicted over the price, but it being less than $200 is worth it).
The Beatles in Mono sounded great (the Japanese MF is still the best), but I believe the Kinks was done better.
People will disagree with me, but that is my opinion.
I can only hope that one day The Kinks get the respect they deserve.
I also hope they release everything else they did over time in a box set (1970 - 1993)
