Face Dances is the ninth studio album by English rock band the Who. It was released in 1981 by Warner Bros. in the United States it was the band's first release on that label and on Polydor in the United Kingdom. It was one of two Who studio albums with drummer Kenney Jones, who joined the band after Keith Moon's death three years earlier. 4 on the US Billboard 200 and No. 2 on the UK Albums Chart. Face Dances. Like every Who LP from Quadrophenia on, it makes the most sense as Episode 442 in the bands continuing story. On its own, its winsomely slight at best, bafflingly circumlocutory at worst. Like The Who by Numbers and Who Are You, Face Dances is another transitional record whose subject, once again, is transition. But where The Who by Numbers was bitter and introverted, and Who Are You lashed out furiously and publicly at fate, Face Dances is exceptionally calm about the facts of age and change accepting, in effect, the condition of fl. Face Dances is an unjustly neglected album in my book as I consider it stronger than the more highly regarded It's Hard that followed. Although not 'proggy' in any conventional sense, of some interest to PA visitors has to be Rabbit Bundrick's keyboards which in the absence of the usual swathes of Townshend guitar, provide much of the internal detail and flesh out the arrangements accordingly.

Their classic line-up consisted of lead singer Roger Daltrey, guitarist and singer Pete Townshend, bass guitarist John Entwistle, and drummer Keith Moon. They are considered one of the most influential rock bands of the 20th century, selling over 100 million records worldwide and holding a reputation for their live shows and studio work. On the ninth episode, Terrence discusses The Who's first post-Keith Moon album from 1981 entitle Face Dances and what Terrence thinks of the album 30 Dances went platinum and became the 2 album of 1981. This 14-track reissue includes five previously unreleased bonus tracks. Go Unlimited. I forgot how much I love the songs on this album. I first saw The Who around the time of this release actually, I think it was between this album and It's Hard, and never tire of their music, regardless of which phase of their storied career. It's impossible not to detect the not-so-subtle fame-, road-, and life-weariness in the lyrics of both Townshend and Entwistle RIP. Their messages - each in his own, inimitable way - are pointed, sometimes poignant but never shy away from putting it right in your face.
