Against all odds, the new Foreigner is really the best sounding Foreinger...ever! This really is a shocker! Mick Jones proves he is the real heart and soul of the band, that he can not just carry the torch, but build a better band around veteran journeymen who can replicate that original Foreigner sound and propel it further. You may think bogus...No one can replace Lou Gramm. Obviously you haven't seen this DVD with Kelly Hansen who not only can sound like Gramm, but looks like Steven Tyler and has both a range and stage presence that Gramm, at least of late, just couldn't match. Foreigner is baaaack!
Alive & Rockin' lives up to it's title and then some. It's not the heavily produced live concert tightly controlled in both lighting and sound for DVD, but rather a document of a set turned in at a German heavy metal fest. This actually seems to work in it's favor as it's "all killer and no filler".Read more ›
Recorded in Germany in 2007 as part of the annual Bang Your Head festival, Foreigner might seem an odd choice to play a set alongside numerous heavy metal and thrash bands. But as you'll see in this DVD, they win the crowd over with no problem. That in itself says a lot about this DVD. Their entire 60 minute set is included, which is the amount of time they were given since several other bands played that day too. Being a shorter show than usual, and being a metal fest, their ballads have been eliminated from this show. The songs overall have had a much heavier sound over the past 3 years, mainly with the additions of Jason Bonham...recently of Led Zep fame...on drums and Jeff Pilson of Dokken on bass. The newer arrangements of their older songs are sung by ex-Hurricane singer Kelly Hansen, who is one of the most animated front men out there these days. He really works the crowd. The group is rounded out by long time keyboardist Jeff Jacobs and multi-instrumentalist Tom Gimbel.
Foreigner is currently working on a new album for release hopefully this fall, but this DVD will give you an excellent introduction to the current band. Highly recommended if you're a Foreigner fan or like melodic hard rock in general.
