AllMusic Review by Dave Thompson
The third and final Pink Fairies studio album, Kings of Oblivion, welcomed guitarist Larry Wallis to the brew, bringing with him some of the band's most remarkable -- and concise -- material yet. The opening "City Kids," famously recut by Mot?rhead during Wallis' sojourn with that band, is as dynamic an opener as the Pink Fairies ever had, while the album's two epics, "I Wish I Was a Girl" and "Street Urchin," similarly catch the band as they made a sharp turn away from the rockin' riff jam basics that scarred their second LP, What a Bunch of Sweeties, and moved instead into the affirmative guttercat stance that so effectively predicted the rudiments of punk rock. Indeed, if any album could be said to have been born ahead of its time, Kings of Oblivion, conceived in 1973 but sounding just like 1977, is it. In common with the rest of the remastered Pink Fairies albums, Kings of Oblivion divides its bonus tracks between unfamiliar versions of familiar material (most pressingly, an urgent alternate mix of "City Kids") and non-album material. This includes two versions of the loping "Well Well Well" and the country rock-ish "Hold On" dating from 1972, and a single cut with Wallis' short-lived predecessor, Mick Wayne, and it's gratifying to have them on CD at last. Truly, though, Kings of Oblivion could exist just as happily without the extras; greeted at the time as the Pink Fairies' best album, it remains a tightly coiled, furiously adrenalined beast, the summation of everything that the Pink Fairies promised and all that subsequent reunions have continued to deliver.

Kings of Oblivion (рус. Короли забвения) — третий студийный альбом рок-группы Pink Fairies, выпущенный в июне 1973 года на лейбле Polydor. Альбом был назван по строчке из песни Дэвида Боуи «The Bewlay Brothers».

После выпуска второго альбома What a Bunch of Sweeties, гитарист/вокалист Пол Рудольф ушёл из группы в Hawkwind, где заменил Лемми. Место Рудольфа в Pink Fairies занял Мик Уэйн. Однако Дункан Сандерсон и Расселл Хантер, записавшие вместе с ним двойной сингл «Well, Well, Well» / «Hold On», были недовольны музыкальным направлением в котором Уэйн вёл группу, поэтому заменили его Ларри Уоллисом, до этого игравшим в UFO. После выпуска альбома группа решила продолжить гастроли, но Уоллис, который хотел быть в «очень глянцевитой рок-группе с двумя гитарами», не разделял с Сандерсоном и Хантером позицию «довольствоваться тем, чтобы встать и джемовать десять минут». В итоге Уоллис ушёл из Pink Fairies и присоединился к новой группе Лемми Mot?rhead.
