The Levellers are back, if they ever went away. Truth and Lies is fresh, challenging and up-beat. From the rousing danciness of Last Man Alive to the haunting lyricism of Sleeping, there is something for die-hard fans and intrigued newcomers too. The production is slicker than usual, polished and full of interesting studio effects that make this more than just a recordig of what the Levs do best, live gigs. Most mind-blowing is Confess, a dark ballad that has something to say to everyone and a gut-wrenching anthemic chorus to sway along to. This album kills once and for all the idea of the Levs as has-been crusties ambling along naively. The lyrics are hard-hitting on themes relevant to listeners of all ages and the musical complexity and variety is a treat for the ears. More like this, please, lads!
