I so badly wanted to like this set. "Something About You" is such a great song, and I've heard a live performance of it, and lead vocalist/guitarist Mark King is very charismatic. He just has a connection with his audience, and a good sense of a sort of musical improv. The band is sort of a jazz-pop band, all talented musicians capable of handling the big stage. Keyboard player Mike Lindup has great falsetto voice, as evidenced by "Something About You". Phil Gould and Gary Husband switch off drumming duties, and both show a jazz percussion background.

So with all these pieces in place, plus a healthy following and series of minor hits in their British home, I was all set to love them. But I didn't. I don't hate them, there is nothing really bad here, but the writing is fairly uninspired, the arrangements are pretty ordinary, and the music is just uninteresting. Nothing grabbed me, no hooks, no riffs, no melody. They are definitely more jazz than pop, and they don't ever stray into rock. So maybe it was my expectations, but aside from the one song I already knew, there was nothing here for me.

Level 42 are known as a one hit wonder here in the United States, and sadly that is my assessment after listening to their "Greatest Hits". "Something About You" is a fantastic song, my highest of recommendations there, but the rest is unmemorable. I'm not a big jazz fan, and thus us definitely more jazz than pop, so perhaps if that's your thing, this might be more up your alley. But for those expecting 'hits', I think you will be add key down as I was.
