Arthur is a concept album released by the Kinks in 1969. Throughout the album, we learn about protagonist Arthur Morgan and his family, such as his wife and his son, Derek, who moves to Australia with his wife and family. His other son, Eddie, and Arthur’s brother of the same name who both died in separate wars are also mentioned. Other than the protagonist and his family, the album also touches on various conflicts and events in England and war. The story is loosely based off of various events in England and Ray Davies' own experiences in life. For example, the song Australia is about.

Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire). Redirected from Brainwashed (The Kinks song)). Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire) is the seventh studio album by English rock band the Kinks, released in October 1969.

Arthur has the same guts as the Band’s new album, that same reach back into the past, the same sense of age - like the Band, the Kinks can play the role of man near the end of his life when they themselves are merely in their twenties. Arthur is more fun, more cutting, and in the end simply hilarious because whatever England was, it isn’t any more, and the Kinks are set free of all responsibilities. Christine Keeler died for their sins.

Written as the score for a never-aired BBC television drama, Arthur is the story of late-'60s English working-class exhaustion. Perhaps not the most attention-grabbing subject for a rock album, but in Ray Davies's hands it's rich in texture and stylistic possibility. From the rousing ode to Britain's glorious past ("Victoria") to its less-than-glamorous present (that being the late '60s), Davies portrays a life of cautiously reduced expectations.

Released: 1969, 10 October. Other releases of the year.

I like The Kinks, a bit more convincingly irreverent and rocking than The Beatles of 1969. Still, I don’t feel they are delivering classic song after classic song here - there are a few more forgettable moments. Shangri-La’ and ‘Churchill’ back to back seems like an obvious high point.
