Faces: Long Player (Warner Bros.)

John Mendelsohn, Rolling Stone, 18 March 1971

BEING ONE OF the few English bands left willing (nay, all too happy) to flaunt their Englishness, and moreover ranking no lower than third on the current fave-rave list of such heavy critics as John Mendelssohn, Faces should be just a shout away from becoming very enormous indeed, and, in the opinion of such heavy critics as John Mendelssohn, perhaps saving rock and roll from taking itself seriously to death in the process.
