World Machine album for sale Product Description

World Machine album for sale by Level 42 was released May 18, 2000 on the Polydor label. Although it looks like Level 42 will never make another album, at least we have one which seems destined to endure. World Machine CD music Mark King had already proved he could slap his bass better than almost anybody; now it was his turn to demonstrate his prowess as a classy songwriter. He succeeded in buoyant fashion with every track, very funky, very poppy and at times upliftingly wonderful, especially 'Something About You' and 'Coup D'Etat'.   ...See Full Description

World Machine was released in 1986, and it pushes their newfound radio-friendly sound into the forefront, and the result is one of the finest pop albums of the mid-'80s. SOMETHING ABOUT YOU exemplifies Level 42 sound at the peak of its success. Bassist Mark King's vocals, while limited in range, are soulful and yearning, while keyboardist Mike Lindup's complimentary falsetto backing vocals add just the right ingredient to the mix. Given the group's original guise as an all-instrumental jazz combo, the musicianship is brilliant, and SOMETHING ABOUT YOU proves how good a song can sound coming from the radio. Unlike most albums that contain one strong single surrounded by duds, WORLD MACHINE has more than its share of fine tunes. The jazzy, upbeat title track is one of the band's finest moments, the should've-been-a-hit LEAVING ME NOW is an effective ballad, and the mid-tempo GOOD MAN IN A STORM is catchy and thought provoking. PHYSICAL PRESENCE is one of the best on the disc with it's big bass sound. WORLD MACHINE is the most successful album in Level 42's career, both in terms of sales and quality.

World Machine is a Timeless Classic
This CD is awesome. The sound is so much richer than the 'greatest hits' version of the songs. I had the tape in the 80s when it came out, and this CD sounds even better.

Classic Level 42
This was the record/cd that broke Level 42 into the US market with 'Something About You', that song was played often on the Top 40 pop stations here in Los Angeles back in the Summer of 86 and I still don't get tired of hearing that one song from Level 42. All in all a real classic recording from Level 42...just wish the record company Polydor/Mercury would reissue Running In The Family as well...
