Face 2 Face will grab your attention right from the start with Outside In/Inside Out and won't let go until the very last note of the very last song Lover And Friend, which is another great track by the way.
Pop music fans will recognize some of the well known contributors on the project including Snoop Dogg and Heavy D plus a few other notables as well.
Face 2 Face is a first rate CD, delivering a little something for everyone. I give it two thumbs up. It's quite simply great listening. A must buy for the Pop fan.
While the entire album is outstanding the truly standout tunes are track 2 - There She Goes, track 12 - Don't Take It So Personal, and track 14 - Lover And Friend.
My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore [...as in "Stuck On REpeat"] is track 1 - Outside In/Inside Out. Outstanding!
