Why Thankee, K-man. Awfully nice of you. You know--there's such a fine line between expressing your view and sounding a bit too self righteous about it AND remain respectful of others' views at the same time. after all--we all likely feel we know what's the best bands,cds,all that. Great call on that Foreigner cd. What a smashing listen that is! Right in line with alot of their best classic work. Some say it doesn't 'RAWK' enough. But do they recall that the band wasn't entirely a 'hard rock' band in the first place? They always encapsulated a great melrock/pop sheen over the edgy guitar work. Sure--they got a bit 'synth-driven' for a couple records,but that's where the rock biz was going around that time. It was wise for Jones to focus in on that element at the time. Gramm didn't like it of course--as he states in his book (which I'm reading now). But I never thought the band 'lost the plot' or anything. You always knew it was Foreigner on each release. Funny how LOu loves that Mr. Moonlight record,but it's hardly a 'rocking' affair. More stripped back and even almost acoustically driven in parts. I love it and Lou never sounded better,IMO. But back to cSD--amazing comeback record that could have EASILY put them right back on top--with radio play. There are so many gems/potential hits on that cd. I have to wonder if Mick will have the heart to write any more new material. That'd be a damn shame as it's evident that he's STILL got one helluva knack for great tunesmanship! Think I'll go respin that cd again right now,in fact. lol Cheers, T
