No End in Sight: The Very Best of Foreigner

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Rhino released a double-disc Foreigner anthology called Jukebox Heroes in 2000, so why did they release a double-disc anthology called No End in Sight: The Very Best of Foreigner a mere eight years later? Well, No End in Sight's release does tie into a new tour from Foreigner, but it also bears a significantly cheaper price point than Jukebox Heroes (the 2000 release retailed at $31.98; the 2008 release at $18.98). These are two good practical reasons for a new compilation, but there's another significant difference between the two sets: this new one focuses on Foreigner alone, cutting off the early Spooky Tooth tracks, Lou Gramm hits, and Mick Jones singles ...

These are two good practical reasons for a new compilation, but there's another significant difference between the two sets: this new one focuses on Foreigner alone, cutting off the early Spooky Tooth tracks, Lou Gramm hits, and Mick Jones singles that made Jukebox Heroes comprehensive. Whether or not these missing cuts are worth the extra money is totally up to individual listeners, but if they opt for No End in Sight they'll get a thorough overview of Foreigner's career, containing all the hits (indeed, they're almost presented in the exact order they were on Jukebox Heroes) and extending right into the present, as there's a new song called "Too Late" and a 2008 live version of "Say You Will" debuting here. If anything, this set might be a tad too long, as most casual fans will surely be happier with a tight single disc with all the singles, but for listeners who do want to dig deeper, No End in Sight is an affordable swap for Jukebox Heroes.

    hits from a true hit maker

    Foreigner was a hit making machine and this 2 CD set has everything you need from them. Their regular albums generally came across as collections of hopeful hits rather than being cohesive albums so this package may very well be considered their greatest album. As opposed to other groups that could be called 'hit machines', Foreigner produced some great Rock N Roll songs and even when they tried their hand at pop, their pop was far superior to most others.
