Feb 22, 2018On the 2018 remake (full title: Twin Fantasy (Face to Face)), Toledo maintains his vulnerability but hides behind layers of noise and production value. ... But if Toledo’s production sensibilities are still a work in progress, his sense of humor and wit continue to shine through.

Great production by the way.

Quite frankly, the only thing I have qualms with is how the drumming initially sounded to me on certain tracks, but now I've grown to love that part of the instrumentation as well.

(the lyrics, man!!!! the production!! plus, the beautiful 1traitdanger verse in the end of Bodys is a godsend.)
and when the mirror breaks, i wouldn't miss it for the world. 10/10… Expand
Feb 18, 2018Wow.
I hadn't heard of CSH until this album, but I saw the high metascore and thought I'd give it a try. Before I listened to this one, IWow.
I hadn't heard of CSH until this album, but I saw the high metascore and thought I'd give it a try. Before I listened to this one, I listened to TOD, and while I thought some of the songs were good, I didn't really like others
And then I listened to this album, which, right now, is a close second for album of the year.
It's genius, well crafted, and, in my opinion, try as you might, Toledo is probably the only person who will ever fully understand this album. The lyrics are honest and, frankly, really confusing, and the great production and raw vocals match them perfectly. Really great album.

Although the album provides a run-through of how dull and tasteless the songs are, sonically, it is definitely more superior than its predecessor 'Mirror to Mirror'. 'Face to Face' consists of sluggish yet heartwarming songs like "My Boy (Twin Fantasy)" and "Sober to Death", but songs such as "Beach Life-In-Death" and "Stop Smoking (We Love You)" are overly-exaggerated.
Strongest Tracks: "My Boy (Twin Fantasy)", "Sober to Death", "Nervous Young Inhumans", "Famous Prophets (Stars)"
