Foreigner

Another favourite band of mine - although I only discovered them six months ago! Another amazing pairing of powerful singer + guitarist who is the lynch-pin of the band, writing some of the most amazing songs. "I Want To Know What Love Is", "Cold As Ice", "Starrider", "Woman Oh Woman" . . . I could go on forever (and yes, I know I frequently do, over several consecutive posts - before Steve picks me up on it!) . . .

Foreigner is just a good band to me, they're OK, very good musicians indeed. But I think they're not a so much exceptional group(MY opinion, don't get me wrong, Liam).

Peace.

I only know "I Want To Know What Love Is". I must say it sounds like the most typical eighties song there is. And no, that's not a compliment. Are all songs like this? What others should I hear?

I'm sure you've probably heard 'Cold as Ice' or 'Double Vision'. Two of their most famous songs. You probably just don't know them by title. Both are very good songs, by the way. But as a whole, I don't think I'm a big Foreigner fan.

I know that you don't mean that complimentarily - I've never heard "typical 80s song" being used as a compliment.

As for your opinion of IWTKWLI, well, in my opinion, it is the greatest vocal performance I have ever heard, by anybody. I shall admit that the instrumental part took a little getting used to, but the vocal just shines through it, and after a while, you stop caring about the average backing. The vocal line is all that matters. Exceptional lyrics, sung wonderfully.

Well, I recommend them. Check out their first album, from 1977, simply titled "Foreigner", and also get "4" from 1981. Great stuff.

Well, go for it! That's all I can say. My mother has got to love them in a short space of time, and has said how fresh they sound, given the stuff is over twenty years old! [8D]
