If you are looking around for one collection of The Levellers' biggest radio friendly hit singles from their commercial peak in the 90s', 'One Way Of Life - The Best Of' fits that criteria quite perfectly.

This album, released in 1998, collects together 16 of the folk rockers' chart successes, and is perfect for the newbie fan or the casual listener. To bigger fans like myself, the real gems can be found on the studio albums (in particular, their masterpiece Levelling the Land). This is certainly more 'greatest hits' than a 'best of', and if you enjoy the music here, I recommend that you purchase a few of the studio albums to be able to fully appreciate the Levellers.

Despite it essentially being a collection of the obvious tracks, what you have here is still a rather interesting release, as some songs appear as remixes ('Hope Street') or re-recordings (the indie anthem 'One Way' sounds excellent), mixed in with the original single version, including my personal favourites, the rocking 'Fifteen Years', and beautiful 'Julie'.

If you need just one Levellers album in your collection (which you should do as they are a first class band), you've found it here.

This is the only levellers album I own, and personally I think it is fantastic. So if this is in reality a collection of the more mediocre songs as some reviewers have said, the other albums must be absolutely extraordinary :D

Ok lets set the record straight, this compilation is called the 'best of the levellers' a tag which I would dispute, and im sure the band and the vast majority of fans would have trouble agreeing with. With the use of hindsight, im sure the band would love to have named it something like 'singles '90 - '98' but they didnt, so for the benefit of anyone new to the Levellers this album is not the place to start!
1. One Way (5/10) - This is a re-recording of the classic song and although it sounds better it just seems to lake the energy of the original.
2. Beautiful Day (6/10) - Many fans hate this song for its commercial sound, i think it served a purpose, but its all some people know of the band, which is sad, a good sing along none the less
3. Fifteen Years (9/10) - Arguably their best song and, as far as im aware their best selling single, a real grower, true magic!
4. Shadow on the Sun (2/10) - should have been a b-side, at best, one of the original tracks on the LP, trundles along and never really gets anywhere
5. Hope Street (6/10) Good Single, again a grower, not my favorate though.
6. Belaruse (4/10) This single came from the self titled 3rd Lp (the bands worst)
7. Celebrate (6/10) A lovely little song about love ahhh
8. Too Real (8/10) One of their best, takes a few listens to sink in but one of their most intelligent songs, spoilt only on this disk by being the 12inch version, which seems like it will never finish!
9. Bozos (4/10) The second song unique to this Lp, bizzare use of techno type beats. Odd.
10. This Garden (6/10) Spoken lyric verses nice chorus. Different from the typic levellers track.
11. Carry Me (10/10) Excellent song, re-recording takes nothing away. Brilliant.

'One Way of Life' by The Levellers is a greatest hits album which portrays the band perfectly. With hits such as 'Beautiful Day' and 'Hope Street' you are able to chill, rock, and let every emotion you've ever known pound out from your system. This is the CD for every mood, an excellent choice and a must for everyone, especially folk/rock fans.

This 'best of' is great. Good few favourites here. Makes a great companion to 'Static on the Airwaves' as a starter pack

This album was a purchase I made after seeing the band live for the first time. I feel it is an excellent introduction to the bands work.
