5.0 out of 5 stars Bring back the good times. 23 Nov 2005
By Curlynob TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When I was at college The Levellers were my favourite band in the whole world. They were the first band I ever saw live. I still remember The Fiddler flying down to the stage on a wire! Fantastic! In an effort to evoke the memory of the good old days, and realising that my original tape was well and truly past it, I jumped on-line and ordered myself another copy from good old Amazon. It's worth mentioning that a lot of albums don't sound half as good as you remember them. Ten or maybe Twelve (?) years on, this record still sounds great. Lyrics to songs i haven't heard in years leapt into my mouth and I was singing away at the top of my voice. If you haven't sung along to RiverFlow, either before or in a long time, your missing out on something truly joyous. Or how about Far From Home or Boatman? This record offers a lot more than just One Way.

I was sitting down the other day, and I started thinking about the albums that had really mattered to me, made me believe, influenced me, moved me; the rare album where all the songs are inspired gems, an album you can pick up in any mood, and it makes you smile, dance across the living room, an album that touches your soul!!
This is one of those albums! Buy it and smile, laugh, do a jig or just sit down in your couch and listen to it with your favourite tipple in your hand and breath in and replay and breath out and replay!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Odd how one album can do so much. 13 July 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
For those who have followed the folk scene since the heady days of Fairport Convention, and/or who have frequented great music festivals like Cambridge and Cropredy, there is nothing unusual or original about the music that the Levellers have produced. Upbeat, anti-establishment folk rockers are everywhere should you care to look. A few are miles better than the Levellers; a lot of them are worse. But when "Levelling the Land" burst onto the early-90s, post-Madchester music scene it achieved something that few albums of its ilk have ever managed to do: it brought anti-establishment folk-rock into the mainstream. This is the album that made space-kids abandon their shoe-gazing, and got Neds and Carter fans doing crazy jigs and reels. I still don't quite know how they did it. Except to say that this is a band of outstanding instrumentalists, with a lot to say and an ear for an addictive tune. Ten years on, some of the issues that they rant about have come and gone, but the album (like all the best folk music) remains as a record of what has been and, in places, what might still be. The Levellers may have become a bit more escapist since then, but with one album they did probably more to encourage young people into folk-rock than years of bearded blokes with their fingers in their ears have ever managed to do. A "must-have".

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous 13 Oct 2003
Format:Audio CD
God I love this album. None of the songs grate even after the thousandth listen, and each has become my favourite at one point or another, to be overtaken again, only to regroup to make another attempt to woo me.
At the same time they were the first band i ever saw live, at Rivermead in Reading in '93. One Way is the song for a generation, and the fact that its used every time anyone wants to show traveller types on TV proves it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better late than never !. 16 Mar 2011
Format:Audio CD
Absolutely brilliant, i am really glad i bought this album. I have somehow managed to have not knowingly heard any of their music during the 20 years they have been around until very recently.
I saw them perform on the BBC Folk Music Awards this year performing "one way" and "riverflow" and was so impressed i searched through their album releases on line and chose " Levelling the Land " because it included those two tracks.
Their music seems to be a sort of indie folk rock that hits the spot just fine for my taste which covers Zeppelin, Who, AC/DC through to Fairport/Steeleye & Strawbs.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Very Rare Occurance 29 Nov 2008
By Eve
Format:Audio CD
There has been a few albums that I've loved, what sets 'Levelling the Land' apart from those albums is that there is no song on this album that I don't like, I love them all. I still haven't got tired of listening to it yet and it still makes me smile and appreciate being alive. Yes this world isn't perfect but who cares when the Lev's are doing their thing and doing it bloody brilliantly! I heard 'Beautiful Day' on the radio, played a couple of tracks on youtube then bought this album, swiftly followed by about 4 more! Listen to them, you'll wonder how you managed without them, i am a complete 'Lev's Lady' now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure, unadulterated genius! 4 Oct 2008
Format:Audio CD
Pure, unadulterated genius. Buy this album, especially if you haven't really listened to it since you had it on a dodgy tape casette back in the early 1990s. Slap it into your CD player, stereo, computer, iPod, whatever. Turn it up LOUD. Sing along. Instantly feel 15 years younger. It is like being re-united with a long-lost friend. A truly classic album...

5.0 out of 5 stars "Comin' To Get You!" 3 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In the summer of 1993 my (then future) wife and I were on holiday in Ireland and we came across an advert for the Feile, a 3 day music festival held at Semple Stadium, Thurles, County Tipperary. The line-up was, even by today's standards, fantastic; INXS, Iggy Pop, Madness, Deacon Blue, Manic Street Preachers, The Christians, Chris De Burgh, Squeeze, Aztec Camera, The Shamen, The Levellers, and many more. We bought tickets for days 2 and 3, took ourselves off to Thurles, and had a brilliant time.

Of all the bands playing at the Feile that weekend, the ones that stood out for me were Madness, INXS and The Levellers. A few months previously, Channel 4 had broadcast a live concert by The Levellers (which I believe is the same concert included in this box set) and I had managed to catch some of it, so I was already aware that they were a great live proposition, but their performance at the Feile blew me away. Levelling The Land was the first album I bought on returning back to England.

I don't know how many albums I've listened to in my lifetime, but ever since I first bought Levelling The Land back in 1993 it has been one of my favourite albums. It's easily in my top 20, even to this day. All great albums have a number of things in common; great songwriting, passionate performance, top notch production and a wonderful flow to them. Levelling The Land has all of these in abundance and this remastered version sounds better than ever. The sound quality is a real improvement over the original cd, released back in 1991.

All eleven tracks are brilliant, so there's little point in highlighting any of them in particular. The whole album is the star of the show. However, it is worth saying one thing.
