One must also note that this album, like most of the rest by The Kinks, is themed. Here we find a lot of songs which revolve around George Orwell's books, mainly Animal farm (In fact there is a song named after the book), Coming up for air and Keep the aspidistra flying. The songs are mostly tongue in cheek, but with a strong sense of character, mocking at the same time. I would also recommend Arthur or the decline of The British Empire, and Face to Face if you liked this Album
