“Low Budget” is the seventeenth studio album by the British rock band The Kinks, released in 1979. The album, available on the 8-track tape format, features a raw and stripped-down sound that reflects the band’s financial struggles at the time.

The album contains 10 tracks, with a blend of hard rock, punk and new wave influences. It opens with the upbeat and catchy “Attitude,” which sets the tone for the rest of the album with its driving guitar riffs and energetic vocals. “Catch Me Now I’m Falling” follows, showcasing lead singer Ray Davies’ signature storytelling and lyrical wit.

The album also features the blues-inspired “A Gallon of Gas” and the reggae-tinged “Pressure.” “National Health” is a satirical take on Britain’s health care system, while “Misery” is a bluesy, guitar-driven track that captures the emotional turmoil of the times.

One of the standout tracks on the album is “A Little Bit of Abuse,” which features a catchy chorus and driving beat. “In a Space” and “Low Budget” are also noteworthy, with the latter serving as the album’s title track and a commentary on the band’s financial struggles.

Overall, “Low Budget” on 8-track tape captures the raw and edgy sound of The Kinks at a time when they were dealing with financial hardship and other challenges. Despite the tough times, the album is a testament to the band’s enduring creativity and musicianship.
