That's right ladies and gentlemen, she's back and she hasn't lost a thing! After the enormous success of her previous outing, "Lisa Stansfield", Lisa comes back with a bang. "Face Up" is perhaps the most cohesive and adventurous of her albums to date.
The first track, "I've Got Something Better", makes a natural transition from the sound established on previous Stansfield albums, building on the trademark Lisa Stansfield smooth-pop sound. This is standard Lisa Stansfield fare and it hits the mark beautifully. It opens the album like a comfortable old friend with soothing memories of the past.
Then, like a storm out of nowhere, Lisa drops a bomb on us with "Let's Just Call It Love," the albums first single. In what can best be described as trance-disco, Lisa gives us what we never expected- a smooth, hot, sexy club hit that beckons our heads to bob, our hips to move and our bodies groove. This track will surprise Stansfield fans and have them yearning for more.
On "You Can Do That," Lisa gets back to music's `Ol School roots and creates this summers ultimate cruisin' song. Think Kool and the Gang's "Summer Madness" with a baseline right out of Lakeside's "Fantastic Voyage." The song makes you want to sit back, relax, get your lean on and ride around with the top off.
The next three songs do very little to excite the ear, especially after the tasty sampling we've been given so far. "How Could You" is a slow, mediocre track reminiscent of Ms. Stansfield's "Real Love" album, complete with horns straight out of a Broadway tune. If the "Affection" album were recorded today, "Candy" would surely be on it. This is vintage Stansfield magic, given just enough of a millennium touch to keep it from sounding like a rehashed melody.

I will never forget my teen days plugging up my walkman earphone and turned on the radio loud when ALL AROUND THE WORLD came into the air of the local stations...
Even I was 15 I knew and I could tell Stansfield was going to be the new Best Brit Pop Diva, she will only get better and classier than her peers Dina Carroll, Cathy Dennis and Kylie Minogue. (Check out the scene in her latest video LET'S JUST CALL IT LOVE as she steps out of the dark limo in a scarlet evening lace dress and sashays down the street to meet her "Lover in Crime"!)
FACE UP is the 5th full-length studio record and effort in 4 years from Stansfield and her long musical companion/love in life/husband/buddy Ian Devaney, with a few tracks co-written and produced by their musical partner Richard Darbyshire.
The Love Duo proves once again at best with their typical upbeat tempo, outrospectively soulful live jazz dance music in the great opener I'VE GOT SOMETHING BETTER. "Open up show me love turn up the music..." Stansfield pronounces in her deep Rochdale accent with a veteran diva vocal that exudes that kind of energy which makes you jump up straight and tap your feet along every beat as she sings...
YOU CAN DO THAT is a pretty funky number in contrast right after the contemporary upbeat exciting sound of the first 2 tracks.
And yes, the most probably biggest smash hit from this album, EIGHT-THREE-ONE, is the indeniably best classic Stansfield trademark disco rhythm (check out the David Morales mix in the new single) after her self-titled 4th album's single NEVER NEVER GONNA GIVE YOU UP. Sound as if we haven't got enough of great stuff from Stansfield, the follow-up title track FACE UP continues to encho her much Barry-White-defined disco sound.

This Diva doesn't get her props at all. She can out sing some of the best out there. They love her in her home England and we should too. I've been a fan since the early 90's. Her voice can carry R&B, house, jazz tunes, you name it. TALENTED!!!

I've loved Lisa since the first time I heard her voice years ago... and THAT style... WOW! Some say that she sounds similar on several albums, but trust me, this is a GREAT thing here! This album, which I whipped out a walloping 30 dollars for at Virgin Megastore for. Thanks Arista for being MORONS(once more) and not giving it a U.S. release! Since Clive left, it has obviously gone downhill! Thanks for giving us a great album Lisa. You're one-of-a-kind !

Come on get with it! This is definitely one of "Mrs." Stansfield's best albums to date. This is one of my absolute favorites from Lisa, there are so many of her best, most recent, songs on this album. Lisa's albums only get better with age, and thank goodness for that! Lisa has said that she thought to be one of her best albums, and I agree. Get this CD and be thrilled with the superb vocals(from the one and only Lisa Stanfield) and wonderful songs, you will not be disappointed!

I'm very surprised at the critical nature of most of the reviews here. No artist that has been around as long as the great Lisa Stansfield is going to put out a five star album every time. Yes, her classics are "Real Love" "Affection" and the incredible "So Natural" but "Face Up" is a really good cd. It's more stripped down than several of her other releases, but "Face Up" features excellent vocals, arrangements and her trademark themes of self empowerment and positivity.
You'll love it.
