The Kink Kontroversy was the third album by The Kinks, released in 1965. True to form, with all Kink albums from 1965 to 1971, this release is a stunning creation. This album is a transitional work, with elements of both the earlier Kinks' styles (heavily blues-influenced songs such as "Milk Cow Blues," and variations on the band's hits from 1964-65 such as "Till the End of the Day") and early indications of the future direction of Ray Davies’ songwriting styles ("The World Keeps Going Round" and "I'm On An Island").
One of the singles recorded during 1965, “Till The End of The Day” has one of those Dave Davies thunder chords, which littered all the hits for The Kinks during their early years, a marvellous song which delivers what you would expect it to effortlessly. The B-Side can also be found on this LP, “Where Have All The Good Times Gone” is just fabulous.
"The Kinks came into their own as album artists -- and Ray Davies fully matured as a songwriter -- with The Kink Kontroversy, which bridged their raw early British Invasion sound with more sophisticated lyrics and thoughtful production." — AllMusic
