  • It’s a shame this collection only contains 10 songs…this collection feels like those …cds you find in the bargain bins released by obscure/generic record companies that have somehow bought the rights to sell such compilations ! That said and out of the way, Records does represent Foreigner’s strongest hits during the late 70’s early 80’s period. The sound is undeniably late 70’s pop rock. Still, the music was and is very energetic with a few memorable tunes (Cold As Ice, Double Vision, Waiting For A Girl Like You, and Urgent). So popular the music of Foreigner that Burger King used Double Vision for one of their campaign commercials a few years back. Urgent was remade a few years later (after it’s initial release) by R&B/dance singer Shannon in the mid 80’s…the awesome thing about Foreigner is that their music and lyrics were catchy and easily accessible; they were not heavy metal or hard rock, but by no means were they pop fluff either ! They maintained a very sophisticated edge without letting their artistry become compromised by refusing to create tunes just to follow a music fad or just sell records !
