This Foreigner compilation is arguably the best Foreigner compilation. It has every Foreigner song you'll ever need. The only real hit that's missing from this compilation is "Blue Morning, Blue Day". Other than that, it's a far out CD! I can never listen to it enough times. Also, the three brand new songs are surprisingly great! Foreigner was definately a band of masters. In addition, the tracks run very smoothly, even though they're not in chronological order. I highly reccomend this CD.

The Very Best and Beyond collects the hits that Foreigner had after releasing the complation Records. This set combines the hits found on the previous complation Records with the hits from Foreigers 1984,and 1987 albums, as well as 3 new songs at the beginning of the album.The Very Best and Beyond surves as a fine introduction to Foreigner.

Foreigner has released several hits compilations over the years, and The Very Best...And Beyond is a fine representation of the band's best known songs. Released in 1992, the album compiles all the big hits, such as "Feels Like the First Time," "Double Vision," "Head Games," "Urgent," "Say You Will," and the band's lone number one hit, the hypnotic "I Want To Know What Love Is." Each of the band's six studio albums is equally represented, and the three new songs are a welcome idea, showing that Foreigner is still a major player in the world of AOR, and showing the Mick Jones/Lou Gramm chemistry is working as well as ever. The leadoff track, "Soul Doctor," is a blistering rocker in the same vein as "Dirty White Boy," while "With Heaven On Our Side" represents the band's ability to perform a heartfelt ballad. Atlantic Records could have added one more song, such as "Blue Morning, Blue Day" or "Break It Up" to fill the disc to full capacity, but that is a trivial argument at best, seeing that all the essentials are here. Perhaps the best, and sadly most overlooked, feature of The Very Best...And Beyond is the fact that all the songs are represented in their full album versions, which is how any best of collection should be. This is the only domestic Foreigner collection on which there are no single edits, and that is most welcome because the listener is able to hear each song as the band intended when they cut the songs in the studio. Between 1977 and 1988, there weren't many AOR bands better than Foreigner, and this 17 song, 73 minute package is the band's finest single disc collection on the market, complete with digital remastering, which is well done by 1992 standards, and should be the one disc any casual Foreigner fan should have in their collection.
