Levellers levelling the land AGAIN!!!!,
This review is from: Letters from the Underground (Audio CD)
Finally. After many years of ordinary Folk Rock. Levellers have remembered where they eminate from. They have developed and recorded an album, that can truely take its place next to Levelling the Land. A return to the anti-war, anti establishment roots, that made us all love them in the first place. The main releases of Life Less Ordinary and Cholera Well, are well constructed and have a typical levellers furore to them. But i am a true fan of the levellers and enjoy the less popular records they have provided us. Simon is on fire on this album, with the support of Mark, who is equally good on vocals and guitar. These days, the idea of a fiddle in a song is not one that goes far. However, this album proves that it holds a place in modern day music and can indeed amplify a quality song.
I personally favour fight or flight, which is reminiscent of Miles Away and Social Insecurity. This is then mirrored by Pale Rider. Awesome lyrics and amazing when heard live. This band represents an era, but more than that, now represents, AGAIN, a quality band that has worked hard to stay current, yet loyal to the roots it came from. AMAZING, AWESOME, the BEST album i have heard in years. Thank you guys and please dont stop!!
