What do you think of this album? :unsure:

 

I hope to be borrowing this over the next couple of days and as a lover of Foreigner, wondered what Johnny Edwards was like?

 

I`ve read mixed reviews on the album, will be an interesting listen! :tumbsup:

 

Great band :bowdown:

I really like the album and think it is underrated but it is maybe a bit more blues rock ala Bad Co. that you might guess a Foreigner album would sound like. That being said it has about 4 fantastic songs on it

 

Thanks mate :tumbsup:

While it might be a little different I still think it's a great album.

I still have on cassette and if I ever find a used copy out somewhere I'll probably upgrade.

I do remember playing the heck out of this one when I first got it after "Lowdown and Dirty" came out on the radio.

In the Foreigner catologue I would rate it at the bottom, not because it is bad (it isn't, there are some great songs on here) but because the rest of the Foreigner catologue is so strong.

Cheers Jez, will give it a spin and see how it sounds :tumbsup:

Finally got this one coming my way (for a dlightful price of us$3!) after being curious about it for a while now. I didn't know Foreigner had released an album in, what was it? 1992? When I found this out I became very interested. Will see how it goes.

To be honest Edwards was nothing more then a Lou Gramm clone, and seeing as Lou was was still better makes it a pretty pointless album to me. However, if Lou recorded ''I'll Fight For You'' and ''Lowdown And Dirty'', i'd be bowing to it. To me, and I know I'm not alone on this, Foreigner isn't Foreigner without Lou. Seeing as this came out in '91, i'd recommend the Shadow King album before this; Lou, Bruce Turgon and Vivian Campbell were a pretty good mix.

Yeah, heard this one recently and it didn't create much of a stir. I agree the Shadow King album is far superior.

 

I don't mind 'Unusual Heat' at all. It was actually pretty good all the way through, but in saying that there was just nothing that really stood out either. It was good, without ever being great at all. Solid all round disc, though.

Now I`ve owned it for a while and am really familliar with it I like it, not up there with the rest of thei albums but still good.

 

For what it`s worth, the Shadow King album is far better IMO.

    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/      
    • I thought of this one today for some reason.  I'm sure everyone here is familiar with "Talking Heads - Psycho Killer" from '77, a very strange track in it's own right, but does anyone here remember the 1980 parody track "Psycho Chicken" by "The Fools"?      
    • That's more like it mate. Your best one so far. Keep it up.
