AllMusic Review by

Released to coincide with the launch of his autobiography of the same name, La Face B is a comprehensive three-disc retrospective from French rapper and producer Philippe Fragione, aka Akhenaton. Gathering material from his several solo albums, from 1995 debut Meteque et Mat ("Je Ne Suis Pas a Plaindre") to 2006's Soldats de Fortune ("Alamo"), the 2010 45-track collection also includes songs recorded with hip-hop collective IAM ("Rap de Droite," "Demain C'est Loin"), contributions from Sako, Toko, and Said, and an inclusion from the Comme un Aimant soundtrack he produced with Bruno Coulais, Isaac Hayes' "Is It Really Home?"
