BACKGROUND INFO: Ray Davies was formerly the lead singer and songwriter of The Kinks. Working Man’s Café is Ray's fourth solo album, which according to music critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine is:
“…a looser, edgier record than its predecessors, there’s a vitality to the performances and the songs themselves bristle with contemporary headlines, bearing references to the vanishing middle class, internet isolation, and New Orleans, the site of both Hurricane Katrina and where Davies was shot and hospitalized after defending a female friend from a mugger. Ever the contrarian, Davies doesn’t dwell on his own troubles, they’re weaved into part of a tapestry of vignettes of a world gone awry — a common theme in his work perhaps (this is someone who pined for the village green in the midst of the psychedelic revolution), but such ornery nostalgia has fueled much of Davies best work, as it does here. Far from being an angry, impassioned screed against a world gone wrong, Davies writes with his signature wry, cynical eye, balancing his weary resignation with a wry wit. The songs have more bite which makes Working Man’s Café more immediate than its predecessor. Yet it benefits from repeated plays as well; as those subsequent spins reveal that these 10 songs are as finally honed as anything he has produced.”
