Davies has been in a retrospective mood of late: In 2009, the legendary Kinks frontman released a set of choral covers, and here he redoes his early hits alongside pals like Bruce Springsteen, Billy Corgan, and Spoon. Hearing Metallica roar through ”You Really Got Me”? Definitely a hoot. The high point of See My Friends, though, is Davies’ duet on ” ‘Til the End of Day” with a fellow power-pop icon: the late Alex Chilton. B+
