"this album was made by 4 teenagers in 93 and while not mature yet this album still have a eerie & disturtbing maturity to it.bone was obviously inspired by NWA,as it shows on this short but sweet album.i camed across this album around 96 when E.1999 Eternal was virtually everywhere.a guy at school said he had a old under ground album of bone before they was signed to ruthless,and before the name change to BTNH.at the time of this album they was called B.O.N.E Enterpris.so needless to say i got the tape from the guy at school went home and and blasted it on my stereo.
i was first and formost suprised at how tight and cohesive they were.and their vocabulary was verry impressive at this time.the content was also verry dark and brooding.don't let songs like flow motion and def d!ck fool you.this album is a huge pre curser to their first two mainstream albums.
STAND OUT TRAX
HELL SENT-This song shows off bone's story telling capabilities wich was later showcased on the song Down 71.the song is about bone entering hell to reclaim their souls from the devil.and on they journey they mow down demons & wiches to get to the abyss and reclaim their souls.i went around my whole neighborhood trying to explain how deep this song was.
Sons of assassins-kray and bizzy probably spit the most sickest verses ever on this song.kray talks about killing some bullies at school with his dads gun.and bizzy talk about getting into a shoot out against the cops with his dad.only to be killed by the cops,befor he dies he manages to tell his dad he loves him
#1 Assassin-is a cold blooded song by layzie bone where he just goes off on the mic.ythis deffinatley should show why lay deserves more respect
Ganksta Attitude-a straight out of compton like cut that has all four members tearing thru the track with urgent agression.
Everyday Thang-a laid back g-funk like rap track thats verry reminicent of west goast rap.
theres other great tracks aswell as this album astounishingly have no filler.but the aformentioned songs are the standout tracks that shows bone vocal versatility and agression.and the production seems to be top notch for a small underground album.as a matter of fact i'm suprised at how sharp it is.
overall this album keeps this ominous sense of haunting dread going thru the album.wich is amazing giving the age of this group at the time.anywayz this is one of verry few "before they was starz" album i would recommend."
Great early Bone Thugs (4.5/5)

"This 1993 underground release lets you see how the Bone Thugs family started. It's a great album all around. There are ten tracks and no filler at all. The production is surprisingly high quality for an underground album, and the thugs' talent is very evident even as teenagers. Their style isn't as defined or mature yet, so some of the music reflects styles prevalent in 1993 rap. Layzie Bone pretty much anchors this CD, along with Krayzie, who sounds really different because his voice hasn't developed its deep quality yet. "Faces of Death" is an awesome CD that any Bone fan should own.
"Flow Motion" is one of the most impressive tracks from Bone. It has a simple, catchy piano hook and the fastest rapping I've ever heard. Krayzie Bone's verse at the end of the song is the quickest lyrics I've ever listened to. "Everyday Thing" sounds like a signature BTNH track, it could have easily come off one of their later albums. It has a slowed down, g-funk beat and a good chorus with great rhymes. "Def Dick" is a reggae influenced track, common in 93 rap, a solid song. "Hell Sent" is one of their hardest songs ever, a crazy thuggish song with a scary chorus and singing. I also love "Sons of Assassins", a crazy slowed down track with awesome flow and voice sample. "Bless da 40 Oz." and "#1 Assassin" are awesome too. Every track on "Faces of Death" is noteworthy and this is as entertaining an album as pretty much every other Bone CD.
"Faces of Death" is worth owning for any passing Bone Thugs fan. If you want to support the group and pay [...] for it, be my guest, but it can be found elsewhere or for download for a lot less, even free. I recommend it to any fan of BTNH or 93 rap."

"These previous reviews are funny a little bit. Three 6 mafia copied from BONE, 1st of all. Secondly, three 6 mafia never could and still can't rap. Also, this CD was hella good in my opinion, it was very original, like bone alwayz is. And a way you can tell a difference between the real and the re-release is that the white balloon thing on the cover that says "the original Bone Members: layzie, bizzy, krayzie, wish" or somehting like that. If that is there then it is a re-released one. Also the name "BONE enterprise" is in a different color. The one pictured here is a re-release."
