Editorial Reviews

One of the top bands of the '70s and '80s, Foreigner-powered by Mick Jones' primal guitar and Lou Gramm's indelible vocals-became arena rock superstars with over two decades of hits and more than 50 million in record sales. The group's signature songs are cornerstones of the classic rock canon, and their worldwide success, beginning with their 1977 self-titled debut album, now over 4X platinum, towers above most bands of their era. With six consecutive albums in Billboard's Top 10-four of them Top 5-Foreigner's driving, hard-edged but soulful sound is as urgent as ever, and their "Hot Blooded" legacy has never sounded better than on Rhino's new 2-CD Definitive Collection of their top hits and greatest tracks. Atlantic. 2006.

Maybe this is the best compilation of Foreigner since "Jukebox Heroes: The Foreigner Anthology" which was released in 2000.
This anthology has 30 songs, 17 on the first disc and 13 on the second disc. The tracklist starts with the oldest tracks to the most recent.

It may be hard today, given their footnote status in the history of rock, to realize how huge Foreigner once was. They were, however, one of very few groups having three albums among the top 50 best selling ones during the 70s. The records are:

22. Foreigner - Double Vision (7 Million Sales)
38. Foreigner - Head Games (5 Million Sales)
42. Foreigner - Foreigner (5 Million Sales)

Their forth album, 4, also sold as many records and actually elevated them to international super stardom. After that their album sales began dwindling but they still managed churning out a few hit singles.

Since their break up, a number of compilations by Foreigner have been released. The main ones are The Very Best...and Beyond and Complete Greatest Hits. The former one was close to being perfect with two major problems though. The first problem was the addition of 3 new songs, all of which were stinkers. Luckily those songs were the first songs on the CD so one could simply start on track 4. I know one could go on and on about such and such tracks should be included but releasing a Foreigner compilation without Long, Long Way from Home as this compilation did can't be justified. This was one of their biggest hits on Rock stations, basically a staple on such stations and also a top 20 hit. Omitting that song is similar to deleting Let the Good Times Roll on a Cars compilation, not a huge hit but a staple at Rock stations. It also omitted Blue Morning, Blue Day but that is not the same travesty. This was rectified on the Complete Greatest Hits compilation, which really has all their hits (including one of the before mention stinkers which albeit became a minor hit at Rock stations) but has one problem; the songs have been in many cases edited.

I remember purchasing the "Juke Box Heroes" anthology thinking that Foreigner was finally getting a compilation that would do justice to it's catalog. WRONG! So many choice cuts sliced and diced, all for the sake of what? To make room for some obscure Spooky Tooth schlock and a tad too many solo tunes from Mick Jones and Lou Gramm (they should have stopped with Gramm's wonderful "Midnight Blue"). "Definitive Collection" goes a long way to rectifying the situation. Full, album-length tracks, a tidied up song selection, and a fine remastering job. Now if they would only have carried over the anthology's first class packaging job with the CD's from this set, I could have gladly given it five stars. As it is, it's the best "Best Of" you will find for this band.

I have never bought a Foreigner album-they were so ubiquitous on the radio waves- but I came across this

double set at a reasonable price and decided to bite. I'm glad I did. The sound on both cds is the best I have

heard on any cd I own, and it's like hearing the songs for the first time (no pun intended). I had thought about

getting a Foreigner cd for some time-mainly for the songs on side 2-but resisted until I saw that this collection

contained the long lost album cut "Starrider". A truly enjoyable guilty pleasure.

The band "Foreigner" produced great ALBUM rock. As has been put down before, a serious problem with these compilations is that whichever one you get, even if it's a 2-Cd set, you will be missing essential songs. Buy one compilation, and songs "A" ,"B",and "C" are excluded. Buy another compilation which has songs "A" and "B", and it will not have song "C" plus 3 others you like.

If you don't want to spend the "big" bucks for ALL the "good" "Foreigner" albums in order to get their good stuff, then for about 18 bucks TOTAL including the shipping just get the 4 essential albums, "Foreigner", "Double Vision", "Head Games", and "4" and you will be set!

Just think of it as buying two double-CD compilation albums. With ALL the good ones, plus several cool bonus tracks!

As I said, in any Foreigner compilation, even if they come out with 10 more "Ultimate" "Final", "Absolutely ESSENTIALLY Definitive", "All-Inclusive", "Greatest of the Greatest", "Bestest Of The Best" compilations, you'll miss out on several great songs, AT LEAST. If you get "Foreigner", "Double Vision","Head Games" and "4" you'll be missing maybe ONE truly good song..."I Wanna Know What Love Is"... which has been overplayed to the point where I almost don't even like it anymore (really, how about you?). Just tune into any classic rock radio station for an hour or so if you need to hear THAT song. Again. They will probably play it twice. But when was the last time you heard their only instrumental, "Tramontane?" Or, how much would it bother you to have bought TWO compilation best-of albums with no "STARRIDER" on either one?
