3 stars Hoelderlinīs album from 1979 "New faces" is just faces/new music in contrast to (especially their first 2 albums)the earlier those were more in the folk/prog/rock way...this is rather in vein of ....say...Alan Parsons project or Pilot...and thats (in my book) not bad at all....there are plenty of good (yes really) pop/prog songs to be had.....I know that hardcore Hoelderlin-freaks do not like (understatement) this album..but i really like it,its filled with great songs.. underlined by solid keyboard fills and nice vocals and guitarplaying in fine style. Sometimes they sound like Caravan at their most bold. So dont go around this if you meet it... if you (like me) are a sucker for good pop/prog the above mentioned style.... try listening to it...give a spin (or 3).... you might be in for a surprise!!!
