Face Value is the debut solo studio album by English drummer and singer-songwriter Phil Collins. It was released on 9 February 1981 on Virgin Records internationally and on Atlantic Records in North America. After his first wife filed for divorce in 1979, Collins began to write songs during a break in activity from his band Genesis with much of the material concerning his personal life. The album was recorded from mid-1980 to early-1981 with Collins and Hugh Padgham as producers.
The face value is the value of a coin, stamp or paper money, as printed on the coin, stamp or bill itself by the issuing authority. The face value of coins, stamps, or bill is usually its legal value. However, their market value need not bear any relationship to the face value. For example, some rare coins or stamps may be traded at prices considerably above their face value.
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. I love the quote from Theodore Roosevelt that is often referred to as The Man in the Arena. I just needed to roll up my sleeves and turn and face the things that I was resisting and master the issues I was avoiding.
It's important that the current period of economic growth is not taken at face value by the government, as there is still a tremendous amount of work that needs to be done. You can't judge someone like Nicole at face value-she's actually much friendlier than she seems at first. 2. In exchange for the official price printed on a ticket (as opposed to a resale price determined by the seller). I'll even sell you the tickets at face value.
You're Safe Now. You Can't Tame a Wild Beast. I'm Sorry Too. Curious Things Happen in the Army. Time slowed to a stop as Khloe's screams echoed in the room and the eyes of the assassin seemed to take on a red glow. The sliver blade neared Khloe's heart and punctured the skin. It digged deeper into the flesh, letting blood stream out. Time regained it's pace. Gurgling blood, the victim stared. Anastasia stood up from the crouching position she was in, smirking. Her extreme anger gave her enough power to slash at the sword hard enough to knock it out of it's owner's hands. A look of victory and insanity flashed as Anastasia was about to make the final, fatal blow to the neck, but her own took a mighty blow from the back. Immediately, she fell to the ground unconscious.
It's also surprisingly subtle at times, though considering that Collins worked with Brian Eno, maybe it's not so shocking. The new agey "Droned" and the swinging "Hand in Hand" give the album some instrumental texture and allow a break from all the desperate emotion on display. The gently sung, sweet-as-punch "This Must Be Love," which was written post-divorce about a new love, also gives an early respite after the lurching, bruising "In the Air Tonight. It's not a career move or a cash grab; it's a transmission from a wounded soul delivered with a soft touch and sensitivity. As such, it's Collins' most honest, most compelling work.
