All Music Guide - Chris Nickson
They might once have been crusties, advocating just one way of life, but it seems as if life has caught up with the Levellers for this release, with its shades of politics and emotion that range well past simple black and white. That gives Green Blade Rising more lyrical breadth than they've managed before, with the result is that it's their best album since Levelling the Land.

Still, it just wouldn't be the Levellers if their hearts weren't pinned to their sleeves, and it's good to know they can be more worldly without resorting to cynicism, as they manage with "Wild as Angels." It's interesting, however, that the forthright passion brings the Waterboys to mind. But there's no longer the outright anger of previous years in "A Chorus Line," no matter how vitriolic is becomes. The days of "Battle of the Beanfield" are gone forever. Older and wiser, maybe, but they can still make a grand album.

    A nighttime CD

    I engoy The Levellers' music for about 4 years now. A friend, whos aunt acually knows the Levellers, showed me their CDs, and I fell in love with them. I bought this CD a while ago and it had much calmer music than the rest of the other CDs, but the lyrics still stood strong. I listen to it pretty much every time I go to bed.
