We gave it an A-

Hey, it’s raining Kinks tribute albums. Sub Pop put out a decent one last year, and now comes this nifty collection of Kink-terpretations by well-respected men and women like Ron Sexsmith, Bebel Gilberto, Jonathan Richman, and Yo La Tengo. Davies’ songbook is so strong and deep it would take some doing to screw up his material; thankfully, just about everyone here is up to the task of reimagining — not re-creating — these tunes. Jolly good.
