'Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire)' is the seventh studio album by The Kinks, released in October 1969. Kinks frontman Ray
Davies constructed the concept album as the soundtrack to a Granada
Television play and developed the storyline with novelist Julian
Mitchell; however, the television programme was cancelled and never
produced. The rough plot revolved around Arthur Morgan, a carpet-layer,
who was based on Ray Davies' brother-in-law Arthur Anning.

'Arthur...' was met with almost unanimous acclaim upon release. It
received generous coverage in the US rock press, with articles running
in underground magazines such as Fusion and The Village Voice. It
garnered back-to-back reviews by Mike Daly and Greil Marcus in Rolling
Stone magazine's lead section; Daly rated it as "the Kinks' finest
hour", and Marcus went so far as to call it "the best British album of
1969". Reviews in the UK were also positive. Although it received a
mixed review in New Musical Express, Disc & Music Echo praised the
album's musical integrity, and Melody Maker called it "Ray Davies'
finest hour... beautifully British to the core".

The album, although not very successful commercially, was a return to the charts in
the US for The Kinks. The album itself reached number 50 on the Record
World charts, and number 105 on Billboard, their highest position since
1965. It failed to chart in Britain. (Discogs)
