Customer Reviews

This is one of the greatest albums of all time, ever!
Telegraph Road
A new album is said to be in the works, and it just might be like 4: a record that in spite of its title is more like a 5 in terms of its greatness.

It's lovely and it's done really well just like Waiting For A Girl Like You.

What was famous in the 1970s & 80s as AOR is more the subject of ridicule today, being a way of conjuring up old memories courtesy of songs that couldn't & wouldn't stay out of your head no matter how unoriginal or catchy they were. Bands like Styx, Journey & REO Speedwagon (in some eyes, the unholy trinity of AOR) are now groups one admits to hating in public, but liking in secret. One AOR band that I'm sure is still "alright" to admit to liking is Foreigner.

Those aforementioned three bands started out making music that was somewhat more "respectable" (jazz fusion, progressive rock, etc.), but languished for years before finally finding success with something a little more accessible to the public. But Foreigner began their career making rock music with more polish than Mop N' Glo, and yet made no apologies. It was because of that they still remain reputable in this AOR-free climate of today's popular music. Even now, their crowning acheivement is their 4th album, appropriately titled 4 (1981).

By this time, Foreigner had recorded 3 platinum albums and were one of the biggest bands in the world. When they recorded 4, only four members were left & as a result, the music had to be augmented with session players. Have no fear though, 4 still contains music to rock the arenas with as well as apply to what is now called soft rock radio. That combination resulted in Foreigner's largest-selling album of their career with 5 hit singles & a rare high-selling album that is considered to be one of the greatest ever made.

The first single was the scorching rocker "Urgent", with a smoking saxophone from Motown legend Junior Walker & a vocal from master Lou Gramm that literally oozes sexual frustration.

It's the fourth album, with only four bandmembers left....may as well call it "4"! 1981's "4" was the commercial peak for Foreigner, not only becoming their best-selling album, but also one of the best-selling albums in Atlantic Records' history. Foreigner had a lot to prove with "4," having to bounce back from the disappointing sales of their previous album, "Head Games," and the band itself shrinking down from a sextet to a quartet (those pesky "creative differences" were said to be the blame). But the remaining members, singer Lou Gramm, guitarist Mick Jones, bassist Rick Wills, and drummer Dennis Elliot, with the aid of some excellent studio musicians (including keyboard wiz Thomas Dolby and sax extraordinaire Junior Walker), delivered a rock classic with many hits to spare. "4" is such an enduring Foreigner album because the songs ROCK so good and so memorably. The powerful "Juke Box Hero," the great rock w/saxophone rave-up "Urgent," and the gorgeous "Waiting For A Girl Like You" are all Foreigner signatures, and the band serve up more great tunes like "Break It Up," "Luanne," "Woman In Black" and "Girl On The Moon." The guitars crunch, the keyboards are heavenly, Lou Gramm's strong lead vocals are incredible, the tunes are all melodic & catchy, and the album's production shines like a newly-waxed floor. Foreigner's "4" is without question the band's masterpiece, and one of rock's greatest albums.

Are you looking for a great rock album(CD), look no further then Foreigner 4. This album has it all : rockin' guitars and silky smooth ballads. Every song on this album is good. "Urgent & Woman In Black" being the best songs(my favorite)and "Luanne" the worst song(my least favorite).

I love this album! Definitely, a top 5 of all time! I've gone through an 8 track, 1 album,2 cassettes & and a CD. I would definitely recommend this CD.

Ah, to be back in the days when rock and roll was just called "rock and roll," instead of the myriad of genres it falls into today. Nowadays, we're bombarded with albums of 15 tracks or more (and only about 3 or 4 of those tracks worth anything. No wonder downloading music for free is so popular). This album came out at a time when you didn't have more than 10 songs per album, although even at that time, only 3 or 4 of them were worth anything. Foreigner "4" changed all that, as every track is a winner. With great rock encompassing slamming guitar riffs along with tuneful vocals, you have a one-stop shopping disc here. Mutt Lange had produced AC/DC's masterpiece "Back in Black" the year before (another rare album with no filler), and this album put him in the stratosphere. In fact, when you look at albums that Mutt's produced, whether it be "Pyromania" or "Come on Over," he's got a pretty high batting average. With the remastered sound, this disc is indispensable, and everyone with an ounce of sense will get it.

In my estimation there are only a few "Classic Rock" (Pop-Rock) albums from the 80's that are worth owning, this is one of them, I have it, and you should too. Sure, there are other good Pop-Rock albums from the 80's, but most I can't stomach in their entirety, as very few stand the test of time. There are no bad songs on this album, and in fact they are all excellent, and not just excellent for their time, but excellent for today. It's now 2007 and this album from 1981 never sounds corny or shrill to me, as so many albums from the 80's do, this album stands the test of time. I certainly think that the listenability of '4' is in large part due to the fact that John "Mutt" Lange was brought in to produce the album, who is arguably the best Rock producer of all time. Yeah, I know Mick Jones was co-producer, but I have no doubt that Lange is the reason '4' turned out to be the revered "Classic Rock" album it is. To date '4' has sold more than six million copies in the US, which is almost as many copies sold as AC/DC's 'Highway To Hell', which Lange also produced. How can you argue with six million copies sold, this is a very good album.
