Uplifting music that people from all walks of life can enjoy

(4 out of 5 stars)

"When every I hear this CD it places me in the mood of having a great time even if the day been very bad for me I can always count on this CD to place me in the right frame of mind."
A beautiful piece of work on some great classics

"I have enjoyed listening to all these old favourites revived and brought to a new life. What a wonderful job! Thank goodness they've left the music alone and if anything made 42's music happier than ever before. The one beautiful thing about Level 42 is if you enjoyed any of their many hits, Mark King's and Mike Lindup's unique voice combination, Mike Lindup's highly individualistic keyboard work, or Mark King's world-class bass playing, you'll enjoy all their music. The music is so intricate and - dare I say it - classical in nature (Mike Lindup, keyboards, is a classically trained pianist) that each time you listen to it, you'll hear something new. Great music to start your day with!"
