I'm a music critic, and I sometimes write articles ranking every song by a band. It is as tedious as it sounds, I am in the middle of Beatles at the moment.
I've become attached to The Kinks as of late, but there are so many songs to hear that it intimidates me sometimes. But I love how they have a story-telling style to their songwriting that sets them apart from other British invasion bands of the era. So I would really love to tackle their discography.
1) Does anyone know how many songs The Kinks have recorded? (Not including Bsides, singles, covers) An exact number or a ballpark estimate?
2) How many studio albums are there? (Spotify is confusing )
3) I'd like to know which songs to listen to to get in the mood, so what are the best and worst songs on each album? I don't know any bad songs (except Lola which might be an unpopular opinion) so I'd like to hear someone else's opinion.
