I'm becoming more & more a fan of John Norum's,mainly on the back of the last 2 Europe studio albums,which are both fabulous.This cd,originally dates back to 1992 & despite the awful,awful 'grunge' era taking over hard rock/heavy metal at that time,Norum had stuck to his guns,& produced an album of fabulous songs,packed to the raft with melody,riffs,chorus,fantastic solo's';proper tunes fabulously played & top singing.The main lead vocalist here is ex-Deep Purple legend;Glenn Hughes.That's a huge plus for me as I'm a major fan.Joey Tempest also guests on 'We will be Strong' too,of which the chorus is similarish to Whitesnake's 'Here I go Again'(if your going to 'borrow'then do it from quality).The material itself is full of uptempo heavy rockers,chugging riffs & face melting solo's,John's playing is a lot more flashier & more complex guitar hero stuff,than he is these days(his more recent playing with Europe is more melodic,subtler with great emphasis on tone & fabulous it is too). Even the ballad 'In your Eyes',is fabulous!There's also an instrumental too 'Endica',which fits in with the instrumental albums that Vai & Satriani & the like, were churning out at the time.Highlights? All of it!!, it's consistantly fabulous, amazing level of top material.If I had to pick a fav track,then at the minute it would be 'Distant voices' which wouldn't be out of place on Whitesnake's legendary 1987 album,great tune,very Sykesy-like solo.The title track too is brilliant.Why John Norum isn't mentioned in the same bracket as other 'supposed' guitar gods,I just don't know.Another fabulous bonus for me is the superb cover of 'Opium Trail' the Thin Lizzy classic.Great,great album,some naysayers may say it sounds of it's time,or a liitle dated,but with songs this good ,who cares??

HASH(0x961d5060) out of 5 stars It sounds great remastered with bonus tracks 20 Jan. 2015

It sounds great remastered with bonus tracks...but I have another recording of this and it's missing several tracks! What the hell? If you guys are gonna release this then make sure it has ALL the tracks on it, even it it has to be a 2 CD set! Trust me, John Norum is worth it! And I would have bought it! Oh well, it's still a good CD nevertheless!

HASH(0x961d5624) out of 5 stars A Decent Album Overall. 29 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've admired John Norum ever since first getting the Europe release The Final Countdown in '87. His solos on that album are all great and quite interesting to listen to. I have also always had quite a bit of respect for his debut solo album Total Control. Face the Truth overall is a pretty decent album. It's never been a favorite of mine though. There's no doubt that it sports good playing, a nice production, and decent songs, but there stills seems to be something missing. Comparing this album to Total Control, Face the Truth lacks the European flavor of that debut. This album is less European sounding, and sounds much more Americanized. That's mostly the reason why I can't relate to it as well as his first album. There are some satisfactory songs on here though. "Nightbuzz" is a good tune, along with "Time Will Find the Answer," and the instrumental "Endica." The rest of the songs are a bit forgettable, but still have a few good moments. The vocals by Glenn Hughes and John Norum are okay. John Norum's guitar playing sounds quite a bit different than on his debut and when he was with Europe. This is not a bad album though. Give it a listen.
HASH(0x961d54f8) out of 5 stars Great Album 31 Jan. 2013
By Rick Lane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a great Rock album by Europe's lead guitarist. This album has a Hard Rock and Heavy Metal feel to it with a few instrumentals on this album. The best tracks are; Time Will Find The Answer, In Your Eyes, Endica (Instrumental) and Counting On Your Love. Overall this is a great CD and I would recommend it.

HASH(0x961d5528) out of 5 stars John Norum - 'Face The Truth' (Shrapnel) 28 May 2005
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
'Face The Truth' is a decent solo effort by John Norum, the former guitarist for Europe (Remember them? Some say they're the Swedish reply to Bon Jovi). This CD also features bassist Peter Baltes (of Accept), drummer Hempo Hilder and Glenn Hughes on vocals. Musically, 'Face The Truth' is like semi-commercial metal, but at the same time, it's not cheesy sounding if you know what I mean. As for the tunes, I liked the title cut "Face The Truth", "Night Buzz", "Time Will Find The Answer" and his Thin Lizzy cover "Don't Believe A Word" the best. Check it out.

HASH(0x961d5a68) out of 5 stars A good album 29 Oct. 2001
By sauerkraut - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
John Norum's second full-length disc, Face the Truth, contains a gratifying collection of tracks. Released in 1992, the album's material is in a straightforward hard rock musical direction. There are 11 cuts. The songwriting is good, the musicianship is solid, and the sound quality is crisp. Norum's guitar playing is skillful, precise, and sleek. Keyboards are sparingly used throughout. The vocal duties are handled by Norum and Glenn Hughes; Norum sings on "Opium Trail," "Night Buzz," and "Don't Believe a Word," while Hughes handles six others--both of them do well with the vocals. "Opium Trail" and "Don't Believe a Word" are cover versions of songs from the group Thin Lizzy; the latter tune is live along with the instrumental "Free Birds in Flight." "Endica" is also an instrumental, but it isn't performed live. Examples of compositions that I enjoy are the lively "Distant Voices," "Opium Trail," the spirited "Night Buzz," "Endica," the nice-sounding power ballad "In Your Eyes," and the driving "Time Will Find the Answer." "Distant Voices" sports a nicely constructed, catchy, sprightly guitar riff. I like Norum's laid-back singing on "Opium Trail." The CD insert doesn't include the lyrics, but the back of it does have a color photo of Norum holding a guitar. The back of the CD jewel case displays a separate color photo of Norum and the rest of his band. The CD is almost 42 minutes. Face the Truth is a worthy disc.
