FACE TO FACE: No Way Out but Through: CD

Jan 05, 2022

Face To Face have been doing their thing for over three decades. I’ve listened to a lot of it over the years and I’ve seen them live on a few occasions. In all that time, I can’t say I’ve ever been into their sound. Not much has changed with No Way Out but Through. The slick polish of their sound gives almost every track a kind of mundane sameness. The exception here was “Ruination Here We Come,” about the only track with any musical teeth. I can’t say one track out of an entire catalog is enough to make me enjoy them. –Paul J. Comeau (Fat Wreck)
