New reissues highlight two underrated albums by the Kinks. With lots of bonus material, it’s a fresh look at this essential band,

Cheap Trick left their mark on rock. So why aren’t they more of a “thing”?
It lacked the commercial punch of “So,” but Peter Gabriel’s underrated “US” showcased deeply personal lyrics and his interest in world music.
