I have been a fan of Level 42 since hearing 'The Chinese Way' back in the early 80's. For the casual fan, or someone starting to get into the group, this is an excellent CD to start of with. The good thing about this CD is that it charts the musical evoultion of the group. From the early brit funk hits of the fore mentioned 'Chinese Way', Love Games, and Micro Kids, to their big hit ( and the song that marked their cross-over appeal)'The Sun Goes Down (Living It Up)( which was produced by members of Earth, Wind & Fire), their period as a major pop band( Something About You, Leaving Me Now, the excellent, and I believe their first UK number one, Lessons In Love, & Running In The Family, and another one I really love,To Be With You Again) to the more out & out pop of cuts like ' It's Over', Children Say, Heaven In My Hands, Take A Look, Tracie,Guaranteed and Forever Now.
For more Level 42 why not try the 1986 albumWorld Machine
