Been playing a lot recently, what a band, songs and singer. Very inventive and concise song writing,  and though no attempt to be virtuoso esque ....great guitar playing!


  • I've got a Foreigner playlist that I revisit every so often lately.  The first few albums especially just had great songs, arrangements, vocals, parts, meat and potatoes guitar solos and riffs.  They got a lot of flak for being a "corporate" band back in the day, but imo they were at the top of the heap for the time period.

    I have more of an appreciation for them in recent years. There was a time when I disliked them.....but I recognize that there were some really good songs. Most of my renewed appreciation comes from the fact that I think Lou Graham is a great singer. Great rock voice that had some soul....I feel the same way about Steve Perry. I prefer the first few Foreigner albums when they were a 5 piece band. '4' was still good though and there plenty of great riffs in those first four albums.
