Honestly, Montreal is one big year-long bike festival... despite being designed entirely around a small mountain.

Avatar 5:43pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

I would say TheBeatles 13ish albums are w/out significant flaws or gaps - but The Kinks are both distinctive & definitive. They are a little like TheBeatles, Wh♂, Dylan (in great writing) - but not like any of them @ all. They are only like themselves & the bands that follow them.
