I was so excited by this new album from one of my favourite bands, Face To Face. They’re back on Fat Wreck after maybe 20 years and this album is a true return to form (after the disappointing “Three Chords And A Half Truth”). Protection is a sublime album rammed with melodic punk rock anthems, huge riffs and impressive bass lines.
The options were order from Fat Wreck in the US and get the red/black split vinyl and pay insane shipping costs. Or grab from the EU store (Kings Road), options of clear or black vinyl and still pay a fair amount, but not quite as much. Still came in just over £18 for this LP, which is pretty damn insane price wise. But, it is Face To Face, so did become pretty essential for me.
