Album Review

Here's a chronological and incomplete selection of Level 42's singles that reaches back to "Love Games" (and therefore excludes great earlier A-sides like "Sandstorm," "Love Meeting Love," and "Starchild") and extends to 1994's "Forever Now." Knowledgeable fans will likely balk at a couple of the selections or missing cuts, but this does contain the band's biggest hits, such as "The Sun Goes Down (Living It Up)," "Something About You," "Lessons in Love," and "Running in the Family." As a throw-in, there's a 1998 version of "The Sun Goes Down (Living It Up)" that features a guest appearance from Omar.

80'sフリーク、とりわけ当時のUKものが好きだった人はやっぱLevel42ですよね。 そういえば、当時Level42のレコードはなぜかJAZZのコーナーに置いてありました。 まだ、フュージョンっていうジャンルすらあまり日本ではなじみでなかった時代でした。 Lessons in Loveとか他にも名曲はいっぱいあるけど、やっぱり86年の"Something About You"。 これでしょ。ちょっと前にテレビでやけに耳にするなぁ、と思ったらZEEBRAが自分の曲でサンプリングしまくってました。なんか同世代で同じようなルーツ持ってるんだなぁってちょっと感激しましたよ。 どうせ150円なんだし、あなたのiPodに入れてみることをお薦めします。 きっと気に入ると思うな。


「Forever Now」大好きだったんですよね……。 アルバムは無いけど、タイトル曲はあるので、それだけで感無量、です。 別のベストで「All Over You」もあるようですし。 「Love In A Peaceful World」とかも欲しい……いや、さすがに欲張りすぎ、かな?(笑)



ロックとダンスミュージックを融合させたDuran Duran。ロックとレゲエを融合させたThe Police。
そして、そんなムーブメントの中、フュージョンをポップな形に昇華し、誰にでも親しみやすくしたニューウェーブバンドがこのLevel 42です。
そんな彼らのヒット曲が詰まったこのアルバムはLevel 42初心者におすすめなアルバムです☆

At the beginning of their career, Level 42 was squarely a jazz-funk fusion band, contemporaries of fellow Brit funk groups like Atmosfear, Light of the World, Incognito, and Beggar & Co. By the end of the '80s, however, the band -- whose music was instantly recognizable from Mark King's thumb-slap bass technique and associate member Wally Badarou's synthesizer flourishes -- had crossed over to the point where they were often classified as sophisti-pop and dance-rock, equally likely to be placed in...
