This review is from: 4 (Expanded & Remastered) (Audio CD)
Slight problem with this record. It contains one of the most famous ballads in the history of rock, the mega selling hit single Waiting for a Girl Like You, which tends to overshadow the rest of the material, which is a shame.
The band did not do themselves any favours by toping Waiting for... with an even bigger selling power ballad in their next record, the equally huge I Want To Know What Love Is.
These two songs branded Foreigner as a ballads band, when in the fact of the matter was that they were rockers, albeit with a softer edge.
4 kicks off with two great anthemic tracks, Night Life, a concert opener if I ever heard one, and the time changing Jukebox Hero.
The album then slows down a notch with Break it Up and bottoms out with the aforementioned Waiting for a... The second half of the record follows a similar pattern with Luanne (another rocker) then to slow down with the next few songs, highmarking the production in Urgent and Girl on the Moon(signature Mutt Lange tracks).
