The song's inspiration can be traced back to when the band visited the Davies brothers' sister, Rose, and her family in Australia, the "designed community" that the family lived in serving as the initial lyrical inspiration.

The musical aspects of the song both reflect and comment on the mood of the lyrics. The members of the band, however, thought highly of the song, with both Dave Davies and John Dalton singling Cantigas - Feeling B - Die Maske Des Roten Todes out for praise.

Music critic Johnny Rogan calls the song "one of Davies' best from the period," noting that "his ambivalence to the subject is evident throughout as he takes an alternately affectionate and sardonic look at cosy middle class aspiration.
