LEVY is the "band" headed by Brooklynite JAMES LEVY. I liked the song "Rotten Love" (and the all-too-short "You Be Sweet") back in '05, but I didn't realize at the time that Mr. Levy is (apparently) big on religion. On his new album GLORIOUS (out in the UK today), the title tune may well be best-in-show, musically-speaking. Lyrically-speaking, it's enough to make this non-believer drop to his knees and pray for Levy (and his generic, repetitive, glory-be-to-god claptrap) to be struck dead and/or dumb by a sudden slash of lightning.

(Unless, of course, he meant it all in an "ironic" way. In which case: my apologies.)

Regardless, I couldn't quite bring myself to offer up that particular song for your perusal. Instead, I'm offering up OTHER songs,as such....


From the LP GLORIOUS, 2007 >>>
MP3] "Mint"
MP3] "Beneath 'Em All"

From the LP ROTTEN LOVE, 2005 >>>
MP3] "Rotten Love"
MP3] "You Be Sweet"

hey, what makes you think he's especially religious? Did you read an interview where he said that? Cause just going by his lyrics he seems to simply be spiritual, like someone like Richard Ashcroft. Let me know, thanks.

Beneath 'Em All - wow what a song! I think that justifies me purchasing the album!
