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.

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.
