Levellers: Green Blade Rising [Digipack] [Enhanced] [Limited Edition]
-----------------
For those who missed out at Amazon (now £12.99 there!!!!), here is the very same deal at CD-WOW.

This appears to be the more expensive digipak version of the album (which contains a bonus video). With the best price for the bog standard no-frills edition weighing in at £5.89 then at £2.49 (with voucher) this appears a nice little bargain.

BTW, the RRP for this enhanced limited edition is apparently £15.99.


Overview
-----------------
The Levellers' seventh studio album, Green Blade Rising--after the various fascinations with Cuba and day-to-day domesticity that marked a slight but welcome deviation from the agenda on the last and often unfairly overlooked album Hello Pig--finds the principled, fiddle-riddled Brighton combo returning to graze on the more fertile folk-stomp pastures of yore, albeit with the gusting rebelliousness, the politics and the cynicism a little more softened around the edges. Maybe it's because the world is now a better place? Or maybe because the wave of anti-globalisation protests mean the Levellers no longer need to shout to be heard?

Whatever the reason, on Green Blade Rising, the Levellers are doing not only what they're best known (or hated) for but--at times--doing what they're best known (or hated) for at their very best. There are perfunctory moments of predictability--the chorus of "Aspects of Spirit" has the slight odour of Aussie protest-rockers Midnight Oil, while the earnest and pleasant "Believers" is akin to latter-day Fairport Convention for fireside soup suppers--but a decent yield of Levellers' belters, among them the all-nations-can-love-one-another-if-we-try exaltations of "Come On" and the fatalistic portent of "Four Winds", are cause for great cheer. Even better, the pop nous of "Pretty Target"--every bit as much a melodic gem as "What a Beautiful Day"--ought to put the Levellers smack bang back in the charts, that is, if such an eventuality hasn't already been outlawed by a hitherto unnoticed clause of the Criminal Justice Act.

Great album

Best band IMO

Heat added

Is this album any good? I loved levelling the land but haven't hear any Levellers albums since.

Great album this one, one of their best in fact. Levelling the land is the best obviously but this album is easily worth this price and you'll be very glad you bought it!

Mouth to Mouth is a good album aswell

Yes, love that album (The Boatman especially!). Other albums worthy of a mention are Levellers (the album) and Zeigeist.

Thanks OP, this band have dropped off my radar of late so its a timely reminder just how good they are. Heat - ordered :thumbsup:

No one can touch them live, chaos theory is an excellent live album

Wow - first purchase of a levellers album since the last century - will be interesting to catch up (am going on fact that previous posters have given it thubs up) - Cheers

Are they still going? Blimey
