Something Else by the Kinks, often referred to simply as Something Else, is the fifth UK studio album by the Kinks, released in September 1967. It marks the final involvement of American producer Shel Talmy in the Kinks’ 1960s studio recordings; henceforth Ray Davies would produce recordings. Many of the recordings feature the keyboard work of Nicky Hopkins and the backing vocals of Davies’s wife, Rasa. Two hit singles are included: Waterloo Sunset and Death of a Clown. The album was ranked No. 288 on Rolling Stone magazine’s 2003 list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. It was voted No. 237 in Colin Larkin’s All Time Top 1000 Albums 3rd Edition (2000).

In a retrospective review for AllMusic, Stephen Thomas Erlewine felt that the work was characterised by ‘nostalgic and sentimental’ songwriting, and that part of ‘the album’s power lies in its calm music, since it provides an elegant support for Davies’ character portraits and vignettes’.
