For­eigner

I Want To Know What Love Is & Al The Ball ads Ear Mu­sic

Guitar Techniques - - Music Reviews -

This is For­eigner as they are now and al­though the track list­ing con­tains new ver­sions of mas­sive sell­ing sin­gles, it a fresh al­bum. The ti­tle is a bit mis­lead­ing as the band’s solid rock de­liv­ery is fully in­tact, but along with the ti­tle track we also get Wait­ing For A Girl Like You, Feels Like The First Time and Dou­ble Vi­sion. It’s a great sound­ing al­bum that mixes long for­got­ten gems with some of their more re­cent ma­te­rial, show­ing what a great band they still are. The lead singer these days is Kelly Hansen, but as ever the lead gui­tar du­ties fall to Mick Jones, the band’s driv­ing force and song­writer. This is a fine set and in spite of the ‘bal­lads’ ti­tle ref­er­ence there’s still loads of en­ergy. It’s also avail­able in a two-disc col­lec­tor’s edi­tion fea­tur­ing un­re­leased hits from an acous­tic show in Ger­many. In April the band is tour­ing the UK, so catch them live if you can.
