Cette fois c’est sûr, les Kinks ont basculé de l’autre côté ! L’époque de la rupture est bel et bien terminée. Suite à MISFITS, ils vont sortir leur album le plus commercial de tous les temps (LOW BUDGET, qui mange à tous les râteliers, du disco au hard FM), puis vont revenir avec celui-ci : leur premier disque de new wave !
Cet album, malgré ses concessions modales et sa non appartenance aux classiques (ne parlons même pas des chefs-d’œuvre), a le mérite d’être le plus créatif de la période. C’est un disque étonnant, au gros son épais, mixant le hard rock le plus pataud (AROUND THE DIAL) à la new wave teintée de ska (ADD IT UP, pourquoi ce titre n’a pas été un hit ?) en passant par la ballade post-punk (YO-YO). Avec ses grosses guitares et ses chœurs à la Clash, le morceau-titre ne laisse en rien deviner quels sont ses créateurs. Idem pour DESTROYER, remixant pourtant leur YOU REALLY GOT ME dans un maelström heavy metal !!! Seuls deux morceaux peuvent rappeler qu’il s’agit là d’un album des Kinks : le single PREDICTABLE, au charme post-rétro alors en vogue, et surtout le bijou du disque, une perle pop à la Ray Davies : BETTER THINGS (qui clôt l'album). Comme quoi, les meilleures choses sont parfois à la fin !

HASH(0x9da20b04) étoiles sur 5 The answer's out there somewhere on the dial 1 novembre 2005
Par W. M. Davidson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
What genre name should we use to describe "Give the People What They Want"? Heavy new-wave? It's one of those rare '80s artifacts: an album that sounds completely of its time but hasn't aged at all. "Give the People" marries the grittiest music of the Kinks' career to nimble, intelligent songs and some of Ray Davies' sharpest lyrics. Dave Davies' guitar cuts like a buzzsaw, synth sizzles menacingly underneath, and Mick Avory brings the most punishing drum attack of any Kinks album.

Ray's songwriting was on fire. From the surreal punk-hoedown title track to the bleary "Predictable" to the gleefully deviant "Art Lover," his songs are inventive and engaging. Each one is a snapshot of lost characters in bleak situations, a glimmer of hope not appearing until the bouyant closer "Better Things." But despite the gloomy material, the album's cumulative effect is invigorating, thanks to Ray's wit and the band's bracing performances.

"Give the People What They Want" endures as the Kinks' finest album of the 1980s and one of the best hard rock albums of that decade. Don't miss it!

HASH(0x9da20f18) étoiles sur 5 The Kinks hit their 80's peak 26 juillet 2007
Par Tim Brough - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
While the albums preceding "Give The People What They Want" were both solid, neither "Sleepwalker" nor "Low Budget" prepared us for this. Ray Davies not only brings The Kinks squarely into a new decade, he takes the time to acknowledge his past. "Destroyer" revives the the propulsive two-note drive of "All The Day and All Of The Night," quotes "Lola" and marries it all to Reagan era paranoia that is quintessential Kinks.

Nostalgia aside, Davies usual delivers his typical skewed vision to the instability of relationships ("Yo Yo" and "Add It Up" featuring a then Mrs Davies, Chrissie Hynde), topical; ("Killers Eyes") and statements on the state of rock (the terrific "Around The Dial"). "Give The People What They Want" was a moment of rock and roll acknowledgement; that Davies and company were spiritual forebears to the raving punk rock that was peaking at the time and that The Kinks were legends that necessitated homage.

But homage aside, "GTPWTW" ends with one of the singular most beautiful songs Davies has ever written, "Better Days."

"Here's wishing you the bluest skies and hoping something better comes tomorrow,
Hoping all the verses rhyme and the very best of choruses to
follow all the doubt and sadness.
I know that better things are on their way."

It's delivered in the most humble of voices with a simple melody, without dipping into a maudlin sound. Davies himself recently admitted on an NPR interview that this was one of The Kinks' songs he regrets isn't better known, and frankly, makes me give this CD an essential rating. The following "State of Confusion" yielded the hit ("Come Dancing"), but "Give The People What They Want" is the superior album.

HASH(0x9da210a8) étoiles sur 5 And they did.. 29 juillet 2009
Par Music Lover - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Ray and the boys really deliver on this one. i bought this cassette because of Destroyer on the radio when i was 11 years old and enjoyed it cover to cover then i had to buy it on album too. i bought it on Cd a few years later and it hadn't lost any of its appeal to me. i find as i get older and revisit some things from my youth they often don't hold up but this one feels as fresh and good as it did then.
I admittedly know little of The Kinks other than owning a greatest hits collection and One For The Road so i can't, in good conscience, say this is their best effort since i haven't listened to enough of their others but for me it's great. Ray's lyrics are great covering things from DJ's,serial killing, assassination,Pedophilia,spousal abuse, mental illness amongst others. not your standard rock n roll lyrical fare. Saddens me to realize nearly 30 years later I'm actually living out the lyrics to Predictable.
There's a punk, new wave agressiviness to a lot of the music. i agree with a previous reviewer on Better Things-what a beautiful song. fitting way to end the record. for my money there's not a bad song on this disc.

HASH(0x9da21480) étoiles sur 5 Stands the test of time 13 janvier 2006
Par B. Whitfield - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I've in recent years revisited my teenage artistic fascinations, and often found the revisit underwhelming. I bought this album thanks to heavy MTV rotation, and it became a frequent player in my Walkman. I liked it so much, I bought it in CD-format. In my desperate early 90's college days, out of desperation and short-sightedness, I sold the CD. Though, I've never heard a single song played anywhere since then, I regretted that act. I just bought the technology to convert my LPs to mp3, and listening to this album again has brought me such joy. Ray's lyrics, tinged with cynicism (depraved pop culture), filled with empathy(domestic abuse), and intimate mourning (father's loss of a daughter). Oh, by the way, did I mention that they also take the time to ROCK! Replete with buzzing guitars, footballer anthems and rapid fire drum riffs, baby, this album has it all! I don't know what 1-star Patrick is thinking about.

HASH(0x9da2157c) étoiles sur 5 What the People Need! 6 juillet 2009
Par Todd Bartholomew - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
The Kinks were on a roll after "Low Budget" (1979) and the live "One for the Road" (1980) bought them some time for yet another strong studio album. "Give the People What They Want" is all that and a bag of chips as the Kinks cemented their place as punk/heavy metal godfathers. "Give the People..." is chock full of disturbing images of Dead Presidents, pervy pedophiles, spouse abusers and psycho killers amidst some mighty tight rock. "Around the Dial" starts off all hard rock and missing DJs that actually is more poignant today than it was then. "Give the People..." is a nasty double-barrel blast comparing modern society to the Roman Coliseum, even offering up Jack Kennedy and a horrific lyric that's as hard to resist as watching the Zapruder film. "Killer's Eye's" is a chilling lament on what can turn someone down the wrong path. "Predictable" is a wry turn on domestic bliss turning into monotony. "Add It Up" is a great kiss off to a partner who's "made a lot of money, but you've lost me on the way". "Destroyer" revisits Lola but puts the paparazzi/paranoia spin on things. "Yo-Yo" picks back up on the psychological aspect again with how a couple's perspective on the other changes over time. "Back to Front" is time for serious hard rock and it's a bit incongruous next to "Art Lover", the paean to creepy men sitting on park benches watching little girls. The music is so beautiful and the way Ray delivers it so sweetly makes it even more disconcerting and disturbing. "A Little Bit of Abuse" is a great turn on how the abused keep going back to abusers with the great lyric "Some people can be so uncouth, excuse me, is this your tooth?" "Better Things" closes out the disc and it's easily one of the most winning and charming Kinks songs in ages, a fond wish for well.

I've said before "Give the People..." and "Low Budget" are probably the two best recordings the Kinks did in the 70s and 80s and stick by that. "Give the People..." has held up great and the material transcends the time that has elapsed. While many groups of the 60s petered out with sad albums in the 80s (Rolling Stones, The Who) the Kinks kept on rocking and if anything were even better than before.
