Product Description

It's difficult to think about Australia's contribution to hard rock without acknowledging the looming spectre of AC/DC, a band that pretty much created the template for pug-nosed riff-rock that still shakes the establishment to this very day. Dig a little deeper into the Australian musical scene, however, & you'll find a host of other acts that were just as impressive, including Cold Chisel, Rose Tattoo, Jimmy Barnes and...the Angels or, as they were dubbed in every terrritory outside of Oz, Angel City. Special Limited Deluxe Collector's Edition, fully re-mastered sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology, includes 12-page full colour booklet.

Tired of mellow music? Then you should pick up this one (if the price is right).: 2 minute warning album is probably their best and this one is a strong offering. I liked 'take a long line, straightjacket, Marseilles', it's now remastered, so why not buy it! Crank it up!

I wore this album out twice on vinyl. Called the "thinking man's AC/DC" this album rocks hard and is a good way to get me started in the morning

HASH(0x9efd5f18) out of 5 stars If you can, get the 'originals' on import Aug. 16 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This version of Face To Face was a US only release which is a conglomerate of the two original albums Face To Face (1978) and No Exit (1979), plus Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again, the re-released version that appeared on the Out Of The Blue E.P. If you are a real purist like me and can't get enough of the music of The Angels (a.k.a. Angel City) then check out the 'originals' on import by searching by album title. Then scroll way way way down the list to the imports section and you'll find "No Exit [IMPORT]" and the 'original' "Face To Face [IMPORT]" - and you'll see all those great extra tracks you're missing out on by only settling for this compilation.

HASH(0x9efd839c) out of 5 stars Does your stereo go to 11? March 7 2003
By Brian Hulett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was fortunate enough to be working at a free-form rock station in Missouri when this album was released. You better believe it got a lot of play on my shift. The music is mostly tighter and faster than AC/DC, a similiar band, and their lyrics tended to be not as dark. Wherever I've played it since for friends, the band has won a new fan here and there, and often the comment is made (as in reviews here) "Why have I never heard of these guys?" Take our advice and take a chance by picking up a copy of this hidden hard-rock gem.

HASH(0x9efd83c0) out of 5 stars ROCK AND ROLL IN IT'S PURIST FORM April 26 1999
By bwb@hystersales.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Angel City, also know as the Angels in their homeland in Australia has recorded approximatley 20 CD's over the past 20 years. Their latest, Skin and Bone was recorded last year and is in release in Australia and soon in France. I contacted their bassist and told them to contact amazon.com., give them a list of their CD's that are available so they can be ordered in the United States. Their music is foot stompin', old fashion rock and roll. You'll love 'em.

HASH(0x9efd86d8) out of 5 stars Australian rock milestone Oct. 2 2000
By Vince Cabrera - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although at the forefront of Australian rock and roll throughout their career, The Angels (AKA Angel City) have always been difficult to classify. This of course is the case with many bands from Australia and New Zealand.
Musically speaking The Angels are a pretty straightforward 2 guitar band and wear their late 70s roots on their sleeves.
A sort of new-waveish, more melodic version of AC/DC, frontman Doc Neeson does a nice line in dementia, and the original Australian Face to Face included "Live It Up" a track that reminded one of 70s pub blues bands such as Dr. Feelgood.
Lyrically, The Angels can get quite poetic (as in "Am I Ever Going To See Your Face Again") and usually manage to avoid rock-pig cliche'.
Although this album does NOT contain the original track list, it does not contain filler either. This is a good introduction to a band whose contradictions make it truly interesting.

HASH(0x9efd8804) out of 5 stars They Should Have Been Huge In The States April 25 2001
By Clark Paull - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
One of the great mysteries of our time is not whatever happened to Amelia Earhart, but why the heck Angel City never clicked in America. Reportedly huge in their native Australia, Doc Neeson, the Brewer brothers, and crew seemed poised for world domination when this album was released back in the 80's, but their career seemed almost stillborn in the States. Sporting a Young brothers-like attack on guitar and the gruff vocals of Neeson, who sounds like he gargled with razor blades, the first five songs alone on this album are worth the price of admission. "Marseilles" is a hard rock masterpiece (sample lyric "Get my French from the girl next door/Teaches me night and day"). Fans of AC/DC, and hard rock in general, don't know what they're missing.
