One of my favourite bands, so many great albums! :tumbsup:

 

How would you rate their albums from best to worse with standout tracks?

 

Thought I`d done a similar thread but can`t find it! :unsure:

 

This probably changes with me....

 

4 (Don`t Let Go / Urgent / Woman In Black)

Double Vision (Tramontane / Spellbinder / Blue Morning, Blue Day)

Head Games (Head Games / I`ll Get Even With You / Blinded By Science)

Foreigner (Headknocker / Cold As Ice / The Damage Is Done)

Agent Provocateur (That Was Yesterday / A Love In Vain / Down On Love)

Mr Moonlight (Hand On My Heart / Rain / Until The End Of Time)

Inside Information (Say You Will / I Don`t Want To Live Without You / Out Of The Blue)

I had The Very Best and Beyond release on cassette and used to play the hell out of it but the only actual studio release I ever owned/own is Unusual Heat which I loved. I will buy the new one with Kelly Hanson on vox if it ever comes out.

Exactly in the order they were released

 

Foreigner

Double Vision

Wasn't impressed by anything I've heard after the first 4....of course I haven't heard any of those releases in many years....maybe I should consider picking up 1 or 2 of them...any suggestions??

Head Games (title track is brilliant)

Foreigner

4

Double Vision

Inside Information

Agent Provocater.

 

After Inside Information I kinda fell out of love with them and sold my albums.

But I did rebuy 4 on CD and it's the only one I own at the moment (which makes a mockery of me placing it 3rd in my list) but I've been toying with the idea of buying the others recently...so I guess I will at some point.

Backed...That best of cd can't be topped by any best of cd. That would be my vote. Great band!

My favourites are probably 4 followed by Double Vision, but Mr. Moonlight always gets overlooked and IMO is a brilliant album...give it another spin

 

All great albums mate, Mr Moonlight is very good indeed :tumbsup:

Can`t go wrong with Compilations but I tend to find some of the best songs aren`t on them :tumbsup:

'The Very Best Of And Beyond..' was a really excellent Foreigner compilation, due to the fact that it had 3 really killer new tracks on it.

1. 'Mr Moonlight' - Rain, White Lie, All I Need to Know, Running the Risk and Hand On My Heart. All killer songs, by far their best disc, imo.

 

Of the others, I'd have to pass on them. 'Say you will' is a nice track off 'Inside information' and I honestly admit I don't mind 'I Want to Know What Love Is'. I probably wouldn't mind hearing thier best of either, but I've owned all the 80's albums and none really did anything for me at all. For me there is nothing to contest 'Mr Moonlight'.

Unlike Geoff who has trouble with good music and the correct spelling of his first name, I really like the 80s albums and not much else. I'd put Foreigner's albums in the following order:

 

1. Foreigner - Headknocker, Starrider, Cold As Ice

2. Head Games - Head Games, Rev On the Red Line, Do What You Like

3. Double Vision - Blue Morning Blue Day, Hot Blooded, Double Vision

4. 4 - Well...okay, this one's only so-so

5. All the other 80s albums

6. A blank disc

7. Mr. Moonlight. :lol:

I disagree, and luckily I need not travel far to prove my point: ;)

Mr Moonlight is a very good album mate, shame you haven`t listened to their wonderful 70`s albums though :tumbsup:

 

All great stuff :banana:

Mostly the classic Schenker era...that's the stuff I first got into first. Also really like the Paul Chapman albums, and even Misdemeanor with Atomik Tommy M. Can't say that the albums with Vinnie Moore do too much for me though. I guess I still think of him as one of those Shrapnel guys from the 80's.

    • I don't. Hate it with a passion. Even that is so 1986. Retire Tesla please. You are an embarrassment now.
    • Tracklist: 1. Super Fine Sugar  2:48 2. Drive It Like I Stole It (featuring Berton Averre of The Knack)  4:25 3. Cherry Cola (featuring Jon Auer of The Posies)  3:50 4. Ex Machina (featuring Jesper and Jacob Binzer of D-A-D)  3:40 5. Pay My Rent  4:25 6. Dirty Earth (featuring Tony Harnell)  4:16 7. Take Me To The River  2:47 8. This Means War  4:36 9.

Rattle The Cage  4:42 Band members: David Shaw - lead vocals, bass George Giannoulis - lead guitar, vocals Alex Rude - guitar, vocals Erik Fehrenbach - drums, vocals Produced by Streetlight Circus Recorded at Snake Mountain Studios - Monroe, New York Mixed and Mastered by Bob St. John for PDQ Productions Bio: Born in New York City, raised on rock ‘n’ roll, Streetlight Circus has become a fist-raising juggernaut.  With two independently-released full-length albums and one EP, consistent touring in the United States and overseas, invites to major American rock festivals, and bills shared with countless venerated artists, Streetlight Circus has become a name synonymous with the new wave of hard rock. The band's new album, Super Fine Sugar, represents a huge leap forward for the hard-hitting quartet. Streetlight Circus showcases the urgent songwriting and soaring vocals of David Shaw, the fiery and passionate guitar work of George Giannoulis, the thunderous drumming of Erik Fehrenbach, and the smooth rhythm guitar work of Alex Rude. What’s more, Streetlight Circus has captured the attention of industry stalwarts who have eagerly participated in the creation of the new album. The songs were mixed and mastered by Grammy-winning producer and engineer Bob St. John. Guest appearances are made by Berton Averre (The Knack), Tony Harnell (TNT), Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies), Brian Forsythe (Kix), and Jesper and Jacob Binzer (D-A-D). Streetlight Circus has been invited to rock thousands at festivals such as Rock Fest (Wisconsin), Rocklahoma (Oklahoma), Rock N’ Derby (New York), Wolf Fest (Colorado), and the M3 Rock Festival (Maryland) among many others. The band has managed to comfortably fit on bills featuring bands as heavy as Avatar, Anthrax, and Megadeth and as accessible as The Doobie Brothers, Buckcherry, and Night Ranger. In 2018, Streetlight Circus embarked on a successful headlining tour of the United Kingdom taking them from Wales to Scotland and many British points in between. Supercharged and ready to roll with Super Fine Sugar, Streetlight Circus is prepared to rock stages around the globe. Don’t miss your chance to rock under the band’s big top. It’s a show you won’t want to miss. Watch the video for "Dirty Earth" featuring Tony Harnell at the link below  https://youtu.be/08_IuFTqwTM  
    • warrant?? CP and DED destroy the debut imo. 🤷
    • Eric Clapton-Chronicles Best Of John Fogerty-Centerfield Genesis-...And Then There Were Three... Jimi Hendrix-Electric Ladyland Billy Joel-The Stranger L.A. Guns-S/T Bruno Mars-Unorthodox Jukebox Motley Crue-The Dirt Soundtrack Simple Minds-Glittering Prize Patty Smyth-S/T U2-The Joshua Tree    
    • Such was commonplace around here years ago. 
    • That's an oxymoron-even KarpetRyd knows that !  
    • Checked this out....not too bad but not sure how memorable it'll be. There's a few tunes I thought sounded pretty good after my first listen and do think Ronnie sounds excellent on the album  Songs like Scream and Shot in the Dark both stood out to me a bit.  I thought Last Man Alive sounded decent too. Much of the rest kind of feels like it falls in line with the first 2 singles that were released.  It's kind of heavy which is cool but just not coming off as being that catchy or memorable initially which was sort of my same problem with the last album.   We'll see what happens with more listens.  Here's a link to the whole album:  
    • WTF is this, two dudes having an intelligent conversation about a band without relying on easy absolutes. I'm impressed.
