Foreigner [Bonus Tracks]

All Music Guide - Andy Hinds
Although punk rock's furious revolution threatened to overthrow rock's old guard in 1977, bands like Foreigner came along and proved that there was plenty of room in the marketplace for both the violent, upstart minimalism of punk and the airbrushed slickness of what would be called "arena rock." Along with Boston, Journey, Heart, and others, Foreigner celebrated professionalism over raw emotion. And, looking back, it's easy to see why they sold millions; not everyone in the world was pissed off, dissatisfied with the economy, or even necessarily looking for a change.

Although punk rock's furious revolution threatened to overthrow rock's old guard in 1977, bands like Foreigner came along and proved that there was plenty of room in the marketplace for both the violent, upstart minimalism of punk and the airbrushed slickness of what would be called "arena rock." Along with Boston, Journey, Heart, and others, Foreigner celebrated professionalism over raw emotion. And, looking back, it's easy to see why they sold millions; not everyone in the world was pissed off, dissatisfied with the economy, or even necessarily looking for a change. In fact, for most suburban American teens, Foreigner's immaculate rock sound was the perfect soundtrack for cruising through well-manicured neighborhoods in their Chevy Novas. The album spawned some of the biggest FM hits of 1977, including the anthemic "Feels Like the First Time" and "Cold As Ice," both of which were anchored -- like most of Foreigner's songs -- by the muscular but traditional riffing of guitarist Mick Jones, the soaring vocals of Lou Gramm, and the state-of-the-art rock production values of the day, which allowed the band to sound hard, but polished. As pure rock craftsmanship goes, Foreigner was as good as it got in the late '70s. [The expanded edition adds four demos: "Feels Like the First Time," "Woman Oh Woman," "At War With the World," and "Take Me to Your Leader."]

    AFTER 30 YEARS I STILL LIKE IT !

    SAW FOREIGNER WITH THE LITTLE RIVER BAND AND (SPECIAL GUEST TO BE ANOUNCED) THAT TURNED OUT TO BE CHEAP TRICK! AT THE LAKEVIEW ARENA IN MARQUETTE, MICHIGAN IN 1978. REMEMBER IT LIKE IT WAS YESTERDAY. IT WAS GREAT. THIS IS A REALLY WELL PUT TOGETHER ALBUM.

    Their best album!!! Even better than their other albums.

    I recently bought their self-titled album and it is awesome. The guitar playing is awesome on "The Damage Is Done". If you are a Foreigner fan, get it. I believe this one is much better than Double Vision, and 4. You won't be disappointed.
