5.0 out of 5 stars Superb!, 29 Jun 2007
This review is from: Zeitgeist (Audio CD)
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.
