In this album The Kinks goes in a new direction in their sound, not so guitar-based, and more introspective Ray Davies's lyrics.

Liked this quite a lot, although it was a bit inconsistent. One absolutely killer track!

A very good album but with some imbalance.
Rosie won't you please come home, Dandy and generally speaking the first half is very very good.

The second half is good but a lot less interesting except for Sunny Afternoon of course wich is the best song in the album.

Finally after a run of excellent singles, The Kinks at last release an album that is up to the standard of those 45's. Face to face features some of Ray's best writing with songs such as, party line, dandy, and, fancy. Sunny afternoon, is an out and out Kinks classic, but as on earlier albums where there were always a couple of great tracks amongst a lot of filler, this time the great songs don't overshadow the lesser known songs. The only dud on the album is, you're looking fine, an awful and unmemorable track. Still, all in all, face to face is the first great Kinks record.

Un gran álbum pop-psicodelico de década. Una cantidad de canciones con buenas melodías y ritmos de guitarra. Cabe destacar un éxito que pasa a la historia por siempre 'Sunny Afternoon'.

Las canciones son pegadizas y directas. Uno de los mejores álbumes de pop rock y psicodelia de la década de los sesenta.

This is Ray developing his songwriting. Plenty of good tracks but a bit inconsistent.
