Foreigner - 1977 Foreigner
This album was the beginning of a dynasty. That being the assured success of the supegroup Foreigner.

Foreigner - 1978 Double Vision
How many times have we seen instances where the 'second album syndrome' has kicked in, and delivered a swift blow to aspiring hopes and ambitions? Not in the case of Foreigner. Despite the bland record cover, this album capitalised on the efforts of that great debut album the year before.

Foreigner - 1979 Head Games
'Head Games' would prove to be Foreigner's heaviest album, and is arguably, their heaviest record ever.

Foreigner - 1981 4
No mention of Foreigner's '4' album in the context of the AOR genre is tantamount to sacrilege. And so it happens that GLORY-DAZE finally gets its act together and reviews this landmark album within the genre.

Foreigner - 1984 Agent Provocateur
There are three avenues which Foreigner explore on this album. Soft keyboard dominated songs, mid paced songs with restrained power and lots of melody, and the grunty rockers with vocal and guitar excess.

Foreigner - 1987 Inside Information
When reviewing the career and discography of the band Foreigner, their 1987 album 'Inside Information' is an album that appears to have been criminally ignored by all and sundry.

Foreigner - 1991 Unusual Heat
The release of 'Unusual Heat' heralded a new and uncertain phase in the Foreigner timeline. It was the band's first studio album since 1987's disappointing 'Inside Information', and was also the first to exclude figurehead vocalist Lou Gramm.

Foreigner - 1994 Mr Moonlight
Some bands weren't unduly affected by the musical climate of 1994, add Foreigner to this list, who sounded professional and continued to churn out great melodic rock regardless of what was going on around them.

Foreigner - 2004 All Access Tonight: 25th Anniversary [DVD]
This DVD release from 2002, celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the bands existence. Someone should've told Mick Jones not to bother getting the cameras out. Sadly it does not show the band in their best light..

Foreigner - 2009 Can't Slow Down
Another of the mega-bands to do the 'Walmart' thing is Foreigner, and though they say they 'Can't Slow Down', it's taken the band 15 years to work their way out of first gear - and deliver us a new album! Such is the irony!

Gramm, Lou - 1987 Ready Or Not
All in all, if you are a Foreigner fan, 'Ready Or Not' is just as essential IMO to have in your collection as '4' or any of their classic AOR albums from the 70's.

Gramm, Lou - 1989 Long Hard Look
All in all, going back to listen to this album proved a worthwhile exercise. Even though melodic rock and AOR were quietly exiting the door in 1989, Gramm did enough for Atlantic to generate two decent singles on the Billboard Charts.

Jones, Mick - 1989 Mick Jones
Despite being given the short sharp boot back in 1989, I have a soft-spot for this album. Not as strong as the Lou Gramm pairing by a longshot, there are a couple of songs that should be given a chance. Mick Jones won't ever come across as a Steve Perry in the vocal department, but he stands on hallowed ground when it comes to his songwriting ability; that there is no doubt.
