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.Read more ›
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.
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?Read more ›
