"Face To Face, Barclay James Harvest's 1984 studio album, is an absolute gem! It blends the familiar BJH themes of socially conscious lyrics with great harmonies and superb musicianship. The mid 80's were a transitional period for progressive rock, and BJH were changing along with the genre. "He said love" is the most overtly religious song the band has done, being esentially a musical retelling of the Gospel. "African" is a powerful anti-apartheid statement with chilling lyrics. "Kiev" is a lovely song lamenting the Chernobyl disaster. If you are already a Barclay James Harvest fan, you will want to add this CD to your collection. If you are not a current fan, this would be a good CD to introduce you to this outstanding group."
