EDITORS’ NOTES

Foreigner’s 1977 debut album was a fist into the face of American hard rock radio. It sold more than 5 million copies and set the English-American band on a hitmaking track that lasted years. Buoyed by ubiquitous riff-verse-chorus-riff hits such as “Feels Like the First Time” and “Cold as Ice,” the album truly rewards with the deeper cuts. “Starrider” (featuring guitarist Mick Jones on lead vocals) winks to early-’70s prog and ’60s psych-pop; “Woman Oh Woman” recalls John Lennon. “At War with the World” rattles the foundations, while “Fool for You Anyway” is a folkish ride into the sunset.

Why can't they leave the albums alone.

Geez, I prefer the original album, not the 'Deluxe Version'

Please make it so!

Are you kidding?

I stopped listening halfway through the first song. Feels Like the First Time (i heard it on the radio). This is the chopped up, shortened, radio version of the song. Absolutely amazing that iTunes would sell this crap on a "deluxe" album. Unbelieveable. Please, I want my money back and the full version of the album.
