Face of Change
Keep The Balance (Soulforce Records)
By: Jeb Branin
This Japanese youth crew band wears it influence on its sleeve like a badge of courage and that influence is YOUTH OF TODAY. Although in no way a rip off or negatively derivative of the NYHC legends it is nonetheless clear that FACE OF CHANGE are not so much trying to forge their own path as attempting to recapture a vibe that although still elusive is seemingly making a comeback worldwide. Like later era YOT, FACE OF CHANGE have mastered the delivery of double barreled hardcore blasts with a distinct underlying melodic base. For fans of the genre this is going to be a CD that you can spin over an over. Even the more expansive hardcore fan is going to find a very solid release here. I certainly did.
