I have to admit, as a 73 year old man I was pleasantly surprised at how catchy this album is when my 19 year old grandson first (and not last) played it to me. My dancing days are long gone, but I can't help but have a small jive around the kitchen to such wonderful songs like "Leave This Town" and sing in rejoice to the catchy chorus of "Hope St", the first song on the album. This is a smashing record to have in the house!

I first became a Levellers fan at the age of 11, then after a while I went through a bit of a phase of liking less inspiring groups (no names mentioned!) and ruthlessly got rid of my Levs albums. Five years later I hear Hope Street while working out in the gym and start to become all reminiscent. Then I go out and buy ZeitGeist.... And suddenly all the memories come flooding back; everything from the haunting sound of Exodus and the extra catchy Fantasy, to the resting effect of Haven't Made It. The lyrics, the melodies, the insrumentation, everything about this album is pure quality. And a special mention has to go to Jon and his ever amazing fiddling talents! The only song which I'd give the slightest criticism to is PC Keen, which personally I'm not too KEEN on. (sorry about that joke!) Anyway, listening to the Levellers again has made me wonder why I ever went off them in the first place. If you've never heard them before and like listening to albums which are brilliant from start to finish, buy this. You won't be sorry.

Zeitgeist is the Levellers' 4th album and the first one recorded by the band in their own recording studio. It consists of 13 tracks many of which absolutely fantastic. After the disappointment of "Levellers", Zeitgeist puts the band firmly back into their former glory (i.e. "Levelling the Land"). The sound is a bit harder than on previous releases, most notably on the single "Hope Street" and the fast-paced "Leave this town". However the catchy celtic-folk-rock tunes which were the trademark of the band are still there, and so are a few beautiful ballads such as "Maid of the river" and "Men-an-Tol". All in all this is definitevely one of the best records in the band's discography and an absolute must-have for all the fans of folk-rock music.

This is pretty much the high water mark album for the Levellers, from their high water mark year: a 12-month stretch that saw them drawing Glastonbury's biggest ever stagefront crowd (a record not yet broken), founding their indie-green-anarchist HQ-cum-recording-studio/commune in Bristol then hitting the number 1 spot with this, their most successful album.

Yup, it really did seem as if earnest and politically engaged eco-politics were about to sweep the nation and the likes of Take That would have to trudge through the musical fallout, heads bowed like bloody penitents.

And yet my musically cognizant friends sneer at my affection for the Levellers. "New Model Army lite" is much bandied about and they stick a finger in one ear and make fol-diddle-rol noises. Very cruel. Still, if I had to produce one Levellers album to silence the detractors, "Zeitgeist" would be it.

For one thing, this is the album where the Levellers started to leave their fol-de-rol folk template behind. In the early '90s their hit One Way had become an anthem and touchstone for British travellers and left-leaning students and the band wisely ploughed this ideological furrow, marrying squalling fiddles to guitars that crunched and drums that pounded considerably harder than heretofore. Yes, they'd already done the Sex-Pistols-with-a-fiddle thing on "All The Free Commons Of England" but this time the eco-punk 'tude was wedded to a startling melodic sensibility.

Easily the greatest Levellers release. There is just the right combination between heavy and light tracks, and Jon Sevink's violin never fails to please.
Every track is amazing, except PC Keen (a really bad song!); very hard to choose the best of the album, but it's probably Forgotten Ground, because of its superb mix of styles and expert banjo accompaniment. Fantasy, Exodus and Leave this Town come close, though.
Hard to imagine a better album.

The Levellers have made some dodgy musical decisions in their later years but buy this album and you can forgive them for every one! This is the sound of a band in their prime - young enough to rock out with passion but experienced enough to put together a professional recording. The performances and production values on this record are about the best the Levellers have ever done.

The overall sound of the album is very up-tempo rock but with all the quirkiness and inspiration you'd expect from the unlikeliest rock superstars Britain has ever produced. Hope Street is pure stadium power-rock, Saturday to Sunday is drive-time folk-rock at its best, Fantasy is sneery 1970s punk and Maid of the River is pure 60s/70s style folk revival (it's even got hammond organ!). The talent of the Levellers is evident in the fact that none of this sounds out of place. They can switch from blasting punk rock to a gentle celtic folk ballad without sounding like they're being wilfully eclectic just for the sake of it.

This is one of those records that you'd actually be foolish not to own. If you have the slightest interest in rock music, I suspect this record will be looked back on as an all-time classic.
