Consumer Guide Reviews:

Troublemaker [Mercury, 1979]
In which the fifth Face, his mates dispersed to the Stones, the Who, Meher Baba, and Hollywood, makes a Faces album as good 'n' raucous as, oh, Long Player. He's more convincing taking a pot shot at the Hollywood Face than movin' out (on guess what kind of person) or seducing a virgin (that's the Hollywood Face's specialty). But if men will be boys, this is how they should go about it. B
