globe – FACES PLACES (a J!-ENT World Groove CD Single Review)
April 8, 1997 by Dennis Amith

globe returns with their 9th single “FACES PLACES” and their second single for 1997. According to TK, the songs lyrics reflect how he has changed musically in different periods of time (1970, 1981, 1984, 1994 and 1997).
Although the single didn’t reach #1 on the Oricon Charts, “FACES PLACES” is a single that not only captured my attention (thanks to their awesome music video for it) but it just showed this raw edge to the group that they have developed since KEIKO had died her hair blonde. The group seems to be much more edgier than when they first debuted, almost rebellious in some ways and I love it!
I just love the overall track and KEIKO shines on this single and even TK and Marc Panther also do a wonderful job. I love the harmony and once again, it’s that edginess that has me listening to this CD single over and over again.
The coupling track is a “Dr. Distorto Mix” for “FACES PLACES”. I find myself always talking about how TK’s mixes are hit and miss, this one is OK musically. It’s a more Marc Panther driven track with occasional KEIKO vocals but its an OK remix. The single ends with a instrumental version of “FACES PLACES”.
Overall, if you are a globe fan and you’re digging this new and edgier globe, then definitely pick this single up!
