Jukebox Heroes: The Foreigner Anthology

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
Like Big Macs and muscle cars, the music of Foreigner is marked by an undying mass appeal and an ability to make snobs flee in terror -- a two-pronged legacy that's captured perfectly on this two-disc retrospective. Jukebox Heroes collects every note of the enduring band's many classic rock smashes, from their 1977 breakthrough "Feels Like the First Time" through to later chart-toppers such as "Urgent" and "Juke Box Hero." As befits a band that single-handedly caused stocks in Bic lighters to soar whenever they went on tour, the two discs contain plenty of classic power ballads, including "Waiting for a Girl Like You" and the chart-topping "I Want to Know What Love ...

Like Big Macs and muscle cars, the music of Foreigner is marked by an undying mass appeal and an ability to make snobs flee in terror -- a two-pronged legacy that's captured perfectly on this two-disc retrospective. Jukebox Heroes collects every note of the enduring band's many classic rock smashes, from their 1977 breakthrough "Feels Like the First Time" through to later chart-toppers such as "Urgent" and "Juke Box Hero." As befits a band that single-handedly caused stocks in Bic lighters to soar whenever they went on tour, the two discs contain plenty of classic power ballads, including "Waiting for a Girl Like You" and the chart-topping "I Want to Know What Love Is." For those who think they can hear any Foreigner hit they want by turning on classic rock radio -- in itself a testament to the band's enduring legacy -- Jukebox Heroes offers up several rarities you'd be hard-pressed to find elsewhere, including the choogling "Street Thunder" and "Lowdown and Dirty." The nicely packaged set is also studded with solo hits by both Lou Gramm "Just Between You and Me" and guitarist Mick Jones, who is represented by a pair of tunes from his pre-Foreigner days with Spooky Tooth. Sure, these songs might not qualify as brain food, but it can be awfully hard to listen to just one.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
It's easy to say that Rhino's Jukebox Heroes: The Foreigner Anthology is the definitive Foreigner retrospective, simply because there's so much music here: 39 tracks over the course of two discs, including all the hits, the bulk of notable album tracks, solo cuts from Lou Gramm and Mick Jones, plus two tracks from Jones-era Spooky Tooth. Clearly, that does amount to a clearly comprehensive collection, but the question is, is this a clear-cut choice for most fans? Well, it all depends on a listener's needs. This will be too much Foreigner if you're just looking for nothing but hits, especially since the classic era roughly defined as pre-Agent Provocateur stops at the end of the first disc. But, anyone that truly enjoys Foreigner's big, glossy arena rock will find that this doesn't test their patience, even if it runs out of steam toward the end of the collection. Anthology keeps interest because of canny selection and sequencing. The addition of Gramm and Jones songs on the second disc works wonders, since it not only strengthens its value for consumers -- it's terrific to be able to have all Foreigner and Foreigner-related songs in one place, especially since Gramm's peerless "Midnight Blue" is not just the best thing here, it's the last great single of the album-rock era -- it accelerates the pace and keeps things interesting just as the band's output gets a little patchy. So, Anthology winds up more consistently entertaining than skeptics could have imagined. It still may not convert those skeptics, but it will prove to the listener with the curiosity to delve deeper than the hits that it's worth doing so.

    Fans agree! You gotta get this set!

    From the late '70s to the late '80s, Foreigner put together a string of commercial hit singles and albums, and they're all here on this Rhino Records compilation. Such platinum hits as ''Double Vision,'' ''Cold as Ice,'' ''Feels like the First Time,'' and the one and only ''Hot Blooded'' are but 4 of the 39 songs featured on this anthology. In addition, several Spooky Tooth (Mick Jones and Gary Wright) songs are included, as well as some solo material from Lou Gramm. Hardworking, journeyman British guitarist Mick Jones and American vocalist Lou Gramm hit upon a formula for success and proceeded to churn out hit after hit. The precedent for the group's sound had been set previously by such British blues/rock bands as Led Zeppelin and Free. Simple, riff-oriented melodies sung with gruff sincerity and swagger (suggestive of the great American black soul singers), matched up with a sledgehammer rock beat and short, to-the-point, electric guitar solos, were just what teens from that period wanted to hear. Fellow British cohorts Bad Company also were mining the same vein (although with less success): sexy love songs sung with some grit, merging British pop sensibilities with a hint of black sensuality. Of course, the plodding predictability of these songs became their downfall, too, as Foreigner were one of several hit machines from that period tagged as ''corporate rock,'' which helped foster the punk and New Wave ''revolutions.'' Although it's easy in hindsight to deride groups like Foreigner, it's crucial to judge them on their own terms. Mick Jones just wanted ''to fuse an attention to melody with some hefty rock stuff, hoping it would stand up next to a Zeppelin or Traffic or a Free record and hold its own. That's the standard I have to reach.'' From that standpoint, they succeeded and more, as their lifelong fans undoubtedly would agree.
