Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Foreigner At Their Greatest May 19, 2003
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top to bottom ,1 of the best albums! October 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sadly, they don't make 'em like this anymore! September 20, 2002
Format:Audio 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Foreigner's Best Album Just Got Better! November 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This was one of the first albums I'd ever heard when I was little and I remember getting very excited about this. Until I heard "4", I'd never heard an album where almost every track sounded like it would be an American Top-40 charter. I got the album for the tour de force, "Urgent" which still sounds like a great track today and was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the other tracks: "Night Life", "Break It Up", "Luanne" etc. The only "weak" tracks are the last 2 and I personally don't like "Juke Box Hero" as much but overall still a very good album. Now in this version, Rhino has masterfully remastered the tracks for a great sound although I'm not sure the extra 2 tracks do anything to improve upon the overall package. I guess I could always turn the stereo off after "Don't Let Go". The liner notes contain all the lyrics and a great write-up on the genesis of the album. Recommended for 80's rock lovers.

One of the greatest AOR albums ever made that has never sounded better because it's on vinyl, and sounds like it was meant to sound. With great gatefold packaging.
