The decade in question on this 2018 compilation is the 1970s, ten years that found the Kinks extraordinarily busy — so busy that Dave Davies didn’t often get a chance to place his songs on Kinks albums. Between 1971 and 1979, the period during which these 13 songs were recorded, the Kinks were powered by a conceptually minded Ray Davies, who cycled through rock operas at a maddening pace before finally finding the hard rock groove that brought the Kinks stadium success in the U.S.A.

Elvis Costello had already taken a few steps from the “angry young man” persona that dominated his first two albums by the time he began work on 1982’s Imperial Bedroom, but that was the disc where his evolution from brash upsetter to gifted pop craftsman began in earnest. In 2017, Costello staged a concert tour in which he re-imagined the songs from that LP, and while that may or may not have put those tunes and their style back into his mind, 2018’s Look Now certainly is an extension of the mature and literate pop songwriting that he first fully embraced in that material.Read More

Having established that their 21st century reunion was not a passing thing, Suede decided to stretch themselves with The Blue Hour, the third record they’ve made since reuniting in 2013. Unlike that year’s Bloodsports or its 2016 sequel Night Thoughts, The Blue Hour isn’t produced by Ed Buller, who helmed their three big records of the 1990s (Suede, Dog Man Star, Coming Up), it’s the work of Alan Moulder, the veteran producer whose fingerprints were all over alternative rock of the ’90s that had little to do with Brit-pop.Read More
