The wait is over. Face Dancer has finally released a new album called Brave New Faces and simply put, it rocks. The eight new songs on this disc feature original guitarists Jeff Adams and David Utter, original drummer Billy Trainor, new comers PJ Lee on bass and keyboards, guitarist Charlie Thomas, and vocalist John West. It is their first studio album since 1990’s Midnite Raid. Face Dancer made their mark on the music world in the late 70’s and early 80’s putting out two albums, This World and About Face. This World featured their biggest hit “Red Shoes.” Now 26 years later, the fourth album starts off with “Words,” a melodic slow rocker you will love. “Smashbox Symphony,” a song written years ago, but reworked for the album, showcases West’s vocals. It’s very upbeat and my personal favorite on the album. Jeff Adams shines on “Straight to the Top,” with great hooks and is also very upbeat. I could tell Face Dancer had a lot of fun recording this album and I can’t stop listening to it. Seeing this band perform the songs live makes me enjoy them even more. Please go to their webpage, facedancer.com, and order this album. It is without a doubt, a breath of fresh air.
