Paul Mccartney in the 60's had been smoking something he shouldn't have been when, all of a sudden, he had an epiphany. Not wanting to lose this to his hazy memory, he wrote it down for posterity. In the morning, he woke up & read the note. It said "There are Seven Levels".
Whether such thoughts are of any value is very subjective but I had a similar experience one evening with this song & wrote it down. Hence the title of this review, as the nature of this song seems to fit the above description.
Essentially this song is a masterpiece of chill-out as it consists of a mixture of violin, piano and electronic music that makes for the best calming music. It also has a distinctly medieval flavour to it & samples strewn throughout such as "Wouldn't it be marvellous to grow old in a place like this".
Clearly it is not to every one's taste &, at 7 minutes, it can seem a little long. It's also annoying that the sample that introduces the track on the album isn't on this MP3 &, instead, the song ends with the sample that begins Captain Dread.
Still, you can't have everything & this song (along with Little Britain) represent the two best bits of the album (IMHO).
If you want one of those amazing Chill-out songs from the early nineties that makes any compilation that little bit more compelling, then this is a good song to buy. If you're after profound experiences, however, then I suggest the full album or, better still, seeing them live.
