Running in the Family/Staring at the Sun

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
This Polydor release pairs the seventh and eighth albums from Level 42: Running in the Family (1987) and Staring at the Sun (1988), both of which reached number two in the band's native U.K. The albums are split between two discs with remastered sound and several bonus tracks, such as a Shep Pettibone mix of "Lessons in Love," a slap bass mix of "Children Say," and extended versions of "Tracie" and "Take Care of Yourself." Serious fans deserve better packaging -- it's drab -- but it's a cheaper alternative to buying fancy individualized reissues.

    I was a bit mad I had to buy the import, at first.

    In part, because I hadn't wanted to buy a double, and partly because [I guess] that means it's out of print in its original form? I got over it fairly quick,after listening to it, hearing the remastered versions of the songs that got me into Level42 in the first place, was like discovering one of the truely underrated(at least here in the U.S.)bands of the 80's, all over again! I'll no doubt, play it to death, (again).I love Mark's bass work and vocals anyway, those, combined with the keyboards, synths, and backing vocals, make the slap bass remix of 'Children Say', phenomenal, and I've never been a big fan of 'remixes' in general. But I can honestly say I'm glad I didn't miss this one.'It's over' has to be one of the greatest 'breakup' tunes ever... 'Staring at the Sun', 'Man', and 'Tracie', (a few favorites from THAT cd), all sound great remastered, the extended version of 'Tracie', makes a great bonus track. For anyone hesitating on this one, BUY IT! Quite honestly, I had had "Staring at the Sun" on cassette, for years, I bought it, when it was first released, and then never really gave it a good listen, hearing it again now, is like hearing a brand new Level42 CD, (I guess my taste changed), for that reason alone, I'm happy it was included. I love, sort of "re-discovering" an old favorite band I haven't listened to in a while. Now I just need to replace the REST of my Level42 collection on cd, from vinyl, and cassettes...
