Das Debuetalbum von Foreigner aus dem Jahr 1977 zeigte in den USA, dass guter alter Rock eben nicht von der aus England anrollenden Welle des Punk verdraengt werden wuerde. Foreigner zelebriert hier, was man in spaeteren Jahren einmal "Arena-Rock" nennen sollte. Musik zu der ein jeder die Luftgitarre auspacken kann und mit der man Stadien fuellen kann. Das Album wurde im Laufe der Zeit gleich fuenfmal mit Platin fuer seine enormen Verkaufszahlen ausgezeichnet und der Hit "Cold As Ice" gehoert in das Programm jedes Rockradios.
Obwohl dieses Album schon diverse Male wieder veroeffentlicht worden ist hat das Team von Mobile Fidelity hier ein kleines wunder vollbringen koennen. Es ist Rob LoVerde gelungen aus den Orignalbaendern ein derartig brilliantes Klangbild zu zaubern, dass man glauben koennte es handele sich um eine moderne Produktion. Nie zuvor klang Foreigner so dynamisch und offen und selten zuvor hat die Luftgitarre derartig um Streicheleinheiten gebettelt. Eines derjenigen Alben, die man unbedingt laut hoeren sollte.
Das MFSL-ReIssue nimmt das Coverbild des abfahrenden Zuges auf der Rueckseite auf und orientiert sich auch hier am Original. Ein Textbuch liegt bei und die Hybrid-SACD erscheint mit fortlaufender Seriennummer.
System-Testing Sonics: Remastered from the Original Master Tapes!
Foreigner's Foreigner on Numbered Limited-Edition Hybrid SACD from Mobile Fidelity. Blockbuster 1977 Debut Packed With Anthemic Classic Rock Hits and Heroic Guitar Riffs. Feels Like the First Time: You've Never Heard Foreigner Sound So Immediate, Detailed, and Punchy!
Blissful feelings arise at the mere mention of '70s arena rock. It gives listeners the permission to have fun, sing along to aircraft-hangar-size choruses, play air guitar solos, forget about any troubles, recall the experience of a first kiss, and quite simply, rock out. Few albums better instill these pleasures than Foreigner's 1977 self-titled debut album, a five-times platinum blockbuster chock full of salacious riffs, soaring vocals, edgy beats, and lyrics that practically demand to be shouted. And while the record has always boasted clean, immediate production, never before has it exploded with the dynamic intensity and rich transparency now made possible on Mobile Fidelity's system-challenging hybrid SACD. This is what rock n' roll dreams are made of.
Spearheaded by guitar hero Mick Jones, fresh off success with Spooky Tooth, Foreigner rallied around a talented collective pulled from the U.S. and U.K. Joining up with former King Crimson instrumentalist Ian McDonald and drummer Dennis Elliott, as well as keyboardist Al Greenwood and bassist Ed Gagliardi, Jones completed the puzzle with the addition of extraordinary singer Lou Gramm, whose vocal timbre and limitless pipes remain one of the most instantly identifiable combinations in music. Before long, two eternal radio classics-"Feels Like the First Time" and "Cold As Ice," composed on a miniature piano and inspired by Hollywood star Joan Crawford-were in the bag. Eight more tunes, each as solid as those that came before, followed, and Foreigner quickly became an overnight rock sensation.
In contrast to much of the era's angrier fare and crudely produced music, Foreigner stood out by way of its clean, muscular, professional production. Still, Mobile Fidelity believed that underneath the surfaces, an even fresher, bigger-sounding record loomed. Remastered from the original master tapes, MoFi's hybrid SACD presents the sextet's roof-raising anthems and scintillating blend of guitars, synths, and Gramm's soulful vocals across a wider, deeper soundstage than ever before imagined. Instrumental separation, tonal balance, and imaging are absolutely superb. Better still, the songs come across with an assertive liveliness that adds to their enjoyment, structure, and melodic character. The accessory flutes, saxophones, and synthesizer solos have never sounded so enmeshed within the overall sonic fabric.
Get ready to hear your new favorite '70s rock album and push the limits of your system's dynamics.
