Kinda Kinks is the second studio album by English pop rock band The Kinks, released in March 1965 by Pye Records.

The Kinks were formed in, North London in 1963 by brothers Dave and Ray Davies, and are regarded as one of the most important and influential rock groups of the era. The band emerged in 1964 during the height of British rhythm and blues and Merseybeat, and were briefly part of the British Invasion of the US until their touring ban in 1965. Between the mid-1960s and early 1970s, the group released a string of hit singles; studio albums drew good reviews but sold less than compilations of their singles. They gained a reputation for reflecting English culture and lifestyle, fuelled by Ray Davies' observational writing style. Their albums of the 1960’ and early 1970s, along with their accompanying singles, are considered among the most influential recordings of the period.

Second album, Kinda Kinks, was rush-recorded on either side (and in the midst) of a world tour that took them all the way to Australia in the course of bridging the 1964-1965 New Year. Under those circumstances, the fact that every cut but one was an original was no small tribute to the songwriting ability of Ray Davies, because what was first-rate was also highly memorable, and what wasn't also wasn't bad.

In the space of two frantic late-December and mid-January sessions, and a brutal week in February of 1965, the group cut 11 songs to fill out a long-player that was already destined to contain Tired Of Waiting For You (a product of the previous summer's work). Also along for the ride were the driving Come On Now and Something Better Beginning.

Kinda Kinks might be uneven as a result but was filled with promise, and equally important, showcased a much more sophisticated sound, along with Ray Davies beginning to explore aspects of emotions and storytelling that transcended anything in the group's prior output. Nothin' In This World Can Stop Me Worryin' 'Bout That Girl may have been a mouthful of a title, but it also put them right in the front of the British Invasion pack for seriousness and complexity, and didn't stop them from switching gears to the bluesy Naggin' Woman.

While the production is still thin, and not to the band’s liking, the result in such rushed circumstances showed how they were developing, and give insight to what was to come.
