Preservation, Act 1 winds up as listenable due to the strength of those five songs, which form the core not only of this record, but the musical drama as a whole. The rest plays as artistic hubris, which is exactly what swallows Preservation, Act 2 alive.

Preservation Act 2 is a 1974 concept album by British rock band The Kinks, and their twelfth studio album. It was not well received by critics and sold poorly (peaking on the Billboard 200 at No. 114), though the live performances of the material were much better received. The 1991 CD reissue on Rhino was a two CD set combining Preservation: Act 2 with its 1973 predecessor Preservation: Act 1, but with no bonus tracks.

The plot and drama behind Preservation, Act 1 and Act 2 are far more subtle investigations of class, culture, and commerce-even if they're couched in characters like rocker Johnny Thunder. The tussle of the Preservation drama is common enough-a citizenry pursuing goals in an increasingly competitive, even ruthless manner, while on the periphery is Mr. Black, who'll save the day and restore balance, and his antagonist, Flash, who seeks to pilfer the Village Green. The Kinks (mainly Ray) return to the idea(l) Village Green from the album of the same name. Unfortunately, this turn is a concept album that does not live up to the original. There are a few songs, "Sweet Lady Genevieve" and "One of the Survivors", are pretty good. The others though, are too light, fluffy, or even sleepy, and for a concept album, never go anywhere.
