4.0 out of 5 stars still going strong....just about, 11 Oct. 2006
This review is from: Forever Now (Audio CD)
I have been a huge fan of Level 42 for more years than I care to mention. I bought this only relatively recently to complete the collection of all their studio albums.

The band's profile had dipped dramatically by the time this was released back in '96 and I, along with many I suspect, didn't even realise it existed, despite I'm told 1 or 2 singles being released.

Anyway, in short, if you like Level 42 you will certainly like this album. It is not an instant classic by the band's very high standards but it is a steady grower and now that I can say I know all the songs pretty much inside out, this is a worthy purchase for any fan of the band or anyone, for that matter, who is into intelligent adult contemporary pop/rock.

Compared to the band's previous outings, this is very much a mixed bag with clear influences from the band's earlier work going back as far as The Early Tapes. You will also find some references to the Running In The Family era - see All Over You and others.

As you would expect with any Level 42 album, the standards of musicianship, song arrangement and production are high.

There are some real highs on this album which compare favourably with the very best material the band has ever produced - see Love In a Peaceful Work, All Over You, Talking In Your Sleep & One In a Million.

Overall, a 4 star album as there are, perhaps, one or two tracks which aren't quite up to the high standard of the rest. Don't judge on the first couple of listens,though. Persist and you will be rewarded.
