Face To Face
Shoot The Moon: The Essential Collection
Antagonist Records

Face To Face can easily be described as the quintessential pop-punk band of the 1990's. With their West Coast sound and skater-punk spirit, Face To Face's songs were the soundtrack to many a young punk rocker's life. This 'best of' album is just that... as there is not a song on the album that will fail to leave you saying, "I remember this song, it fucking rocks!" Be forewarned as Shoot the Moon: The Essential Collection will most likely send you down memory lane, reminiscing about the 'good ol' days' when punk was still in your face and the challenge to the status quo. There is also something very punk rock, and most certainly fitting, that two years after the bands breakup this retrospective album is being released on Face To Face's own front man Trever Keith's new record label Antagonist Records. The album will have 19 well-loved tracks (including a couple live ones) as well as 2 previously unreleased songs. While some fans may be glad, I have to say that I was slightly disappointed to not see anything from the Ignorance is Bliss album. Despite this missing period in the band's evolution, the songs that were included could not have been better chosen. This can most likely be attributed to Keith's own label releasing the record, another good reason to see this album coming out on Antagonist. Yet another reason would be the promised 28 page booklet that is supposed to include rare photos and document the band's somewhat tumultuous history. The promo CD's did not come with the booklet, so I can not tell you if it is any good, however I have no doubt that it will be. Either way, booklet or not, this album stands on its own and is an excellent addition to any F2F fan's collection.
