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.

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".

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 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 10 years of magnitude? 3 Dec 2002
Format:Audio CD
Another purchase that was a good idea! This was my favourite tape while in the 6th form many years ago. But technology meant my TDK tape became obsolete! Been years since I last had the pleasure and was a little aprehensive as the memory often remembers the past to be better than it was, nostalgia eclipses fact. Not the case with Levelling the Land. If you were an indie boy or girl in the early 90s then you'll love this. The Import version has 15 years on it (successful single released after the original albulm and added on later versions) which is a bonus. A CD of folk, rock, happy, hippy, guitar, violin, political views wrapped up in some very good and accessible tunes. 10 years on from its release and it still hits the mark for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection! 4 Sep 2014
By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Note: This review is for the original 1991 CD release of this album, and not the 2007 re-issue Levelling The Land, which I do plan to buy someday.

There are some albums that you'll play on repeat and then gradually tire off, this has happened to me many times, but The Levellers second full-length record 'Levelling the Land' will never fall into that category. It's one of my favourite albums in a CD collection that is very extensive.

With songs so good that you could mistake it for a greatest hits CD on first hearing, 'Levelling the Land' was certified gold in the UK in 1991, and opened up with their anthem 'One Way', an energetic song with lyrics that should be followed by everybody.

Other hits followed, including 'Fifteen Years', which only missed the top ten. But neither of these tracks are my favourites. The political songs are what make this record truly special. 'Battle of the Beanfield' tells the real life story of how hippies at a festival were treated unfairly (to say the least) by police, or, as the lyrics go: "b****rds". 'Another Man's Cause' is an anti-war song that almost brought a tear to my eye when I first heard it, as it expresses the Falklands War through the story of a mother loosing her husband and son, questioning why we have to go to war at all, it's an amazing song.

The Levellers make folk music like no other band, and this masterpiece combines upbeat music with beautiful ballads that lyrics that really can speak to you, make you reflect, and also inspire. If you wish to start a collection of the band's music, you might be better off with buying the One Way of Life - Best of album first, but if want just the one studio album, I do urge you to pick 'Levelling the Land', you'll thank me for it.
