Level 42 had a single each year between 1980-89 the best of which appear on this impressive compilation of funk-pop. The band's exceptional skills as musicians and songwriters are well repreesented. The songs from the '83 - '87 period provide the highlights. Micro Kid is tight, Hot Water features the familiar chugging bass lines of L42 meister Mark King as does the band's biggest hit Lessons In Love. Ballads Leaving Me Now and Children Say are spine-tingling. The later tracks featured seem a little more forced. The rocky Heaven In My Hands partially succeeds while 1989's Take Care Of Yourself seems a little rough.Otherwise a fine collection from one of the premier exponents of the three minute pop single.
