  • Foreigner, like most bands, has multiple “Best Of” CD’s. Records, Jukebox Heroes, Complete Greatest, various “budget” compilations and their most recent Definitive…I think this one is the best! As previous reviewers have mentioned, there are no edits here. I am not sure why Rob O’Connor of Amazon says that “I Want To Know What Love Is” is the only additional song on this CD that is not on Records. There are several as Foreigner had many hits after that album came out in ‘82. “That Was Yesterday,” “Say You Will” and “I Don’t Want To Live Without You” are all here. You get most of the AOR “staples,” plus 3 new songs. I am generally not a fan of bands that put new material on Best Of CD’s as it is usually at the expense of songs that should have been included. I will say, however, that “Prisoner of Love” and “With Heaven On Our Side” are pretty good. My only complaint, and a minor one at that, is that “Feels Like The First Time” appears at the end of this CD. I sometimes forget it is here as it should “kick” things off! I have owned all of the forementioned “Best Of’s” and this one is the only one I have kept. Need I say more????
