FACE TO FACE: Three Chords and a Half Truth: CD

Sep 18, 2013

So the card trick after the first reunion record (or hiatus or whatever you want to call the five-year break), is to keep the momentum rolling. Some bands can do this—like Mission Of Burma, for example. Other bands just are not up to the challenge. I’m happy to report that this is not the case with this record. We get a lot of varied sounds and different styles here, along with the Face To Face anthems of the future. It’s obvious a lot of effort was put out on this one. “Skyscrapers and Smokestacks” “and “Jinx Proof” were some of the standouts. But it’s clear that this band can still make a solid album from end to end. Now it is all up to you.
