My first listen in probably 15 years to this album was a mind blowing experience. I had never thought of this as a good album....but it is very, very good. I was amazed at how good it sounded. Firstly track listing:
1. You Better You Bet
2. Don't Let Go The Coat
3. Cache Cache
4. The Quiet One
5. Did You Steal My Money
6. How Can You Do It Alone
7. Daily Records
8. You
9. Another Tricky Day
BONUS TRACKS
10. I Like Nightmares
11. It's In You
12. Somebody Saved Me
13. How Can You Do It Alone (live)
14. The Quiet One (live)

There are probably only a few tracks the average fan will recognize....possibly You Better You Bet/Cache Cache/Another Tricky Day. Those 3 alone make this album exceptional. There are many other highlights and the bonus tracks, especially the live ones, really complete this album. Kenny Jones' drumming is very good, and Entwistles bass...even on songs that normally would be slow with just a few notes....is out of this world. Man that man could sure play.
All inall this album really holds up all these years later (2014 when I write this) and this has to be one of my top.......uhhhhhh 5..... Who albums. A solid 4 Stars.

This is one of the Who albums that many believe shouldn't have been made. It's true that the songs on here lack a bit of energy, especially compared to their early 70's records. But I can't help but think the songs on Face Dances are some of the Who's most well-written and memorable collection of songs.
Hearing Face Dances for the first time you can tell that, by this point in their career, the Who seem really exhausted. The songs that do have some energy feel more like the members of the Who are forcing themselves to rock out, to keep up with the times. The harder rocking songs just don't sound very convincing. However, I don't think the Who lost a step at all in terms of writing excellent music.
The main reason I love this album so much is because I think every song (excluding the bonus tracks) is written very carefully and every song is easy to remember and fun to listen to. Plus I have a lot of memories connected to all the songs, especially "You Better You Bet". Memories of when I was only a few years old and hearing that song on the radio as my mother drove us to Delaware to do some shopping. I feel like I'm back in the mid-80's once again whenever that song comes on. The rest of the songs give me the same memories.
But I think all the songs are excellent. Even "Another Tricky Day" which is most people's second favorite song (behind "You Better You Bet"). I couldn't get into that song for the longest time but now I think I finally hear what everyone else loves about it.
There are some moments that especially interest me such as in "How Can You Do It Alone" when the melody switches in another direction and the line "I need your help, so I can do it by myself" comes in, man that's great!

The Who, especially Pete Townshend, had been unhealthy in dwelling on the fact that they were getting older ("older" being your 30s in rock and roll) since the mid 1970s on albums like "The Who By Numbers" and "Who Are You." In 1978, legendary madcap drummer Keith Moon died, an event that forever shattered the band, and two years later, "Face Dances" reveals a group in a state of uncomfortable maturity and a yearning for wisdom.
Other albums, such as "Who's Next" allowed for The Who's growing maturity to be seen, but in those days, it was still with youthful arrogance. This is what makes "Face Dances" so unique. The Who are found in a frantic daze of disillusionment, unleashing track after track of enthralling energy.
The sound within packs a solid punch, in a vaguely pop-oriented feel, such as that of 'Cache Cache' and the excellent Top 10 single 'You Better You Bet,' as the mood is generated in a much more frenetic fashion in 'Daily Records,' 'You,' and 'Another Tricky Day.' Other songs like bassist John Entwistle's ironic self-portrait 'The Quiet One' and 'Somebody Saved Me' are minor Who classics. Kenney Jones, Keith Moon's replacement, proves himself to be a competent drummer, while Roger Daltrey's angry cries punctuate the album with essence.
Though it is without the pinnacles of other albums, "Face Dances" is definitely a worthy set. This album was the next-to-last studio album for The Who however, revealing the band's loss of desire, a fact which bitterly attaches itself to the songs here.

Perhaps it was obvious that The Who was in its twilight years even before drummer Keith Moon's untimely death in 1978. Nevertheless, their album at the time WHO ARE YOU (1978) was their strongest release since WHO'S NEXT, mainly because it was a much better attempt at eschewing rock opera excess than 1975's self-consciously stripped-down (and appropriately titled) THE WHO BY NUMBERS. But with Moon's death, The Who unofficially went on hiatus as their feature-length documentary THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT hit theaters, and the three surviving Who members concentrated on solo work (with guitarist Pete Townshend having the most luck). In 1981, the Who decided to greet the new decade with a fresh approach (and a new drummer) on what would prove to be their penultimate studio album FACE DANCES.
It's almost a moot point that finding a drummer to rival the prowess of Keith was impossible, and for all intents & purposes, the Faces' Kenney Jones certainly had some big shoes to fill. While he certainly is not the primal genius Keith had been behind the skins, he still gets the job done & manages to make a good impression. Too bad he arrived at a time when it seemed The Who were no longer giving their all to their craft.
FACE DANCES was surely not the Who's best-selling album, yet it did feature their highest charting single in some time. "You Better You Bet" was far from just the token hit that Who albums had been providing by this time for it definitely is one of the band's finest recordings of their entire career.
