Including bonus tracks, this version of LEVEL HEADED not only features the full-length version of "Love Is Like Oxygen", but the single version of it as well as "California Nights". Capitol dropped this title more than 5 years ago, only available as a cassette. This CD shows a more Alan Parsons-type approach, and the CD is mastered perfectly.

After countless hits,metal glam classics and rebel raisin'rock, this group of rousers suddenly grew-up and retreated to the hills to record this classic. An album made by mature musicians who were just to good to put out another 1,4,5 boogie album. This has an adventurous feel to it like a classic Queen album. Some moments do sound like Queen in the complex harmonies. And the softer songs have a grand orchestral sound that is big not boring.And we have our heavy guitar themes but the glossy production makes everything sugary sweet. I'm reviewing this again after all these years because we the fans were unfair when this came-out the first time. "Love Is Like Oxygen" did go on to be a big hit. This is a deep album and deserves reflection and multiple spins...5 stars because this is a class A record from a band that just became a class act at that time...

Moving well into their 30's in age the Sweet takes a turn to the adult-oriented rock genre. Having been known either for being Mike Chapman/Nicky Chinn's band, or hard rockers writing occasionally killer songs, Sweet turns the volume down to a low scream for "Level Headed" in 1978. Unbeknownst to fans this was to be Brian Connolly's swan song as the rest of the band was about to give the alcoholic singer the boot in a most uncool, devious manner. The album really shines as Steve Priest and Andy Scott step up and deliver a collection of fine songs, all four members giving superb performances. "California Nights" sets the mood by the band doing their best Eagles/Fleetwood Mac impersonation, but "Silverbird" is pure Sweet with killer rythm by Priest and Tucker. "Fountain" surprises by showing range in the band's songwriting talents. "Love is Like Oxygen" we all know it, it's so good...nuff said. Side two offers up a string ensemble for a song from out of nowhere "Anthem No. 1" sung beautifully by Brian. "Strong Love" is a mid-tempo rocker that fit nicely in the pocket with a killer groove. The album ends on the strange "Air on 'A' Tape Loop", but somehow seems like the perfect end for the band. "Level Headed" is what's known as progressing as a band, and many times spells death. The Sweet were lucky in this regard, the audience accepted them in their new format, and the band didn't need to retrace their steps....for another two albums. Level Headed could be perceived as a high water mark for the band critically as well as commercially. To others, its just limp rock and roll. I think it stands on its on merits.

This is a great album by the Sweet with some really good songs...it's got a couple of duds like Lady Of The Lake. This effort is one of their mellowest albums...but songs like the massive Love Is Like Oxygen make it worth picking up.

I have the Lemon Records version and it is not remastered at all in fact the CD's output is very very low and it's hard to tell if they used master tapes for this release...they are notorious for vinyl transfers and this is probably the case for this reissue...still the quality is very listenable if you turn up the stereo a lot just not what you'd expect from a 2008 remaster. The other thing is I wish it came with the US cover art which I prefer.

To be honest, the remastered job on this CD failed to impress me. Nevertheless, I still rate this CD with 5 stars because it's simply outstanding, full of emotion and musical maturity. Released in 1978, Level Headed is definitively one of Sweet's best, yet most intriguing productions. The Sweet had just established itself as one of the hardest rocking bands during the 1974-1977 rock vintage period. Not necessarily winning over their always overtly harsh "critics", but Brian Connolly (v), Mick Tucker (d), Steve Priest (b) and Andy Scott (g) had finally demonstrated their enormous musical talents. The band peaked during this period and their influence on `80s rock metal bands is simply undeniable. For starters, Motley Crue copied every riff, antics, mayhem from The Mighty Sweet, always falling way short in their attempt. Always imitated but never equaled. No teeny bop #1 hits were necessary anymore, as The Sweet was a band on a mission, a mission to do and say whatever they wanted. They were totally outrageous and out of control. And then came "Level Headed", an album displaying their softer side. This album is night and day compared to their recent musical past, but still delivered some of the bands richest repertoire. Sadly, this is the last album to feature Brian Connolly on vocals, and well... The Sweet was regretfully never the same. The import CD version is much better than this, it sounds great and it also has two superb extra songs: "Show Me the Way" (a rocking continuation of their excellent "Laura Lee" ballad from their prior release, and "Cover Girl".
The Sweet is one the greatest and most influential bands of the '70s, yet one of the most underrated. This album is a must for any serious music lover.
