Review: Face 2 Face is Angelo Luster's solo debut released in 2004 and is for grown folks that relate to Intimacy, Fellowship, Quality Time and Reunion not just as words but a gift from God. Face 2 Face is an outstanding project that will have not only the bride and groom @ a wedding as one but the whole congregation. The vocal arrangements tie beautifully with the instruments and delivers an inspirational atmosphere even in the darkness moments. If there is one reason you should buy this album let it be because, of the passion to see the unsaved drawn closer to the Creator.
