Face To Face: Shoot The Moon 2006 NR

Amazon Instant Video

(24)

Face To Face is one of the most influential pop-punk bands in the last 15 years. Their signature brand of catchy, fast punk rock with intelligent, thought-provoking lyrics has spoken to a generation of punk fans across the world. Their 15-year career yielded 6 full-length albums and countless headlining tours across USA, Canada, Japan and Europe, including five headlining appearances on the Vans Warped Tour. Although probably most well known in the mainstream with their 1994 radio single "Disconnected" (which is still in regular rotation on rock radio stations today), Face To Face cultivated a large touring base that sustained their career well beyond the early success of that single. "Shoot The Moon: The Essential Collection" features 19 of Face To Face's best songs re-mastered, along with 2 unreleased tracks: "Thick As A Brick" and "Disconnected" recorded live at their final show in September 2004 in Los Angeles, CA. The deluxe packaging includes a slipcase cover and a 28-page booklet with in-depth liner notes and rare photos.

Face To Face is one of the greatest punk bands ever.
Scott L. Ratafia
Once you watch the final live show, you will almost certainly want to watch the documentary, and then the live show will mean just that much more to you afterward.
John Friscia
Tracks 18 & 19 are from their last proper album, also one of their best.

If you watch the Ramones documentary End Of The Century you'll hear Rob Zombie comment on how the Ramones were a band that were "always there." They did their brand of music for so long, and so often, that you got used to seeing their name on the list of shows coming soon to your town, and once they called it quits you realized how much you kinda liked having them around. Face To Face long ago stopped getting any press, the kids all moved on, even the ones raised on that Epitaph/Fat glossy skatepunk sound, but Face To Face were always there, always consistent, always making good music.

As for this compilation, it's always interesting when a band anthologizes themselves which time periods they choose to play up and which to ignore. In this case, they did pretty well. The first 5 tracks (and technically track 15) are from their first release Don't Turn Away, which is basically a classic of the era, made at a time when albums like that weren't a dime a dozen. Tracks 6-9 are from Big Choice, great album, bad cover. Tracks 10-14 are from their self-titled album, likely their best, definitely their highest-selling, and a remarkable feat considering the general trends were moving away from music like this at the time. Tracks 16 & 17 are from Reactionary, novel at the time for letting fans choose the tracks for the album, good that they included Disappointed as it's a highly underrated F2F song. Tracks 18 & 19 are from their last proper album, also one of their best. The last 2 are technically new, a new track (NOT a Jethro Tull cover!) and a live Disconnected from their farewell tour (which i was fortunate enough to catch.)

The keen-eyed fan may notice NOT ONE SINGLE TRACK from Ignorance Is Bliss.

If any band deserves an essential collection, it's Face to Face. They were punk rock pioneers who paved the way for many punk bands out there now. 21 tracks spanning their 12 year career all in chronological order (so you can hear their progression as the years went on, the tracks don't bounce around like other hits collections). Plus, they added a 2 bonus tracks, one studio track and one live track both recorded in 2004, the year they hung it up.

The liner notes are amazing as well. An introduction written by Trever Keith and notes from each band member on each track, I found, very interesting and informative. I have followed this band for many, many years and I learned a lot by the notes.

Whether you are like myself and own every Face to Face record or not, this CD is a must have. Vagrant, Antagonist Records and Trever Keith put together an amazing collection. Face to Face lives on....

All true Face to Face fans have already bought this collection if they know it exists, and if they find out about it, they are guaranteed to buy it. For those that are not so hardcore in their love of Face to Face, there are still a couple reasons to pick this collection up.

Firstly, if you consider yourself an encyclopedia of punk music or music in general, you simply must buy this DVD. It is a sophistocated look at the story of Face to Face from start to finish, which spends quite a long time on the origins and not quite enough time on the latter half of their career, and it offers a rags to "riches" (the band never had a gold record) story of which most aspiring bands can relate.

Secondly, the DVD is a great value. If you're a minor Face to Face fan and you just want to see a complete live show by them on their farewell tour that screams (not literally) energy and excitement and think it would be cool if you could learn a little bit more about the band as an extra, then this is excellent for you. Once you watch the final live show, you will almost certainly want to watch the documentary, and then the live show will mean just that much more to you afterward. Even better, you can go back and watch all of their music videos whenever you feel like, though there are few that will ever know why Face to Face decided to make a music video for Debt rather than something like Pastel or Ordinary.

Face to Face is arguably the greatest band that no one has ever heard before, but there are six main albums, a covers album, and one live album around to firmly establish their legacy for the generations to come.
