AllMusic Review by

Far too generous with the later albums in Level 42's discography, containing not nearly enough early highlights ("Starchild" and "Love Meeting Love" are just two of the craziest omissions), The Very Best of Level 42 -- released by Polydor U.K. -- will still be fine for those preferring the brighter, glossier, and more rock-oriented sounds of "Something About You," "Lessons in Love," and "Running in the Family." At 19 tracks, it's fairly generous, but it's a strange move to ignore so much strong material from the likes of Level 42, Strategy, and The Pursuit of Accidents. The more thorough Ultimate Collection is the way to go.
