Profile “Confrontation” is the follow-up to the self-titled 1984 debut album of the Boston new wave band Face to Face. While the previous album had edgier elements, like the rap in “Under The Gun”, “Confrontation” was starting to move away from that style. Because of that, this release is seen as a bridge between the debut and their next (and final) album One Big Day. Like the 1984 debut, most of the songs were written by Angelo, with Laurie Sargent credited as co-writer on half.

This record was not a success and would be the last release by the band on Epic Records. Many vinyl pressings in circulation can be found with a gold promo stamp on the back cover, making the non-promo copy more desirable to collectors due to its rarity. “Tell Me Why” was released as a single in The United States. The independent label woundedbird.com has reissued this on CD for the first time ever.
