I bought this cd with reservations on what i would feel about it. Because there is no way to get away from it , Lou Gramm will be missed. And being as i've been a fan of Foreigner since the early 80's i felt he was going to be a hard act to follow. Surprise surprise this man ( Kelly Hansen) has manage to achieve what only a handful of replacement vocalists have ever mananged to achieve? they have come across as an equal adversary. Kelly's voice is not to dissimilar to Lou's so unless you're really a staunch Lou fan you will not really worry too much that it is a new vocalist. I was personally taken aback by this cd , i bought it out of curiosity , and i am glad i did , the songs sound fresher and dare i say it some of them even sound meatier too. The only reason i did not give this five stars is because there were a few songs that i would of liked to of heard him do on here but , the're absent. Well worth the money and dont worry if you miss Lou Gramm he will become a distant memoory once you've heard this.
