Rocks In The Attic #264: Foreigner – ‘Foreigner’ (1977)

RITA#264This is Foreigner’s debut album. It has a terrible album cover, showing the band members wearing a selection of ladies overcoats, looking like a group of half-hearted transvestites.

As bad as the cover picture is, the album has Cold As Ice and Feels Like The First Time on it, so you can understand how this catapulted the band into MOR stardom.

Album tracks like the terrible Starrider show how weak the band can be – like an American version of The Moody Blues – but other cuts firmly place the band in the soft-rock category they made their home.

This is definitely one to throw at zombies in the back garden when the apocalypse comes.

Hit: Cold As Ice

Hidden Gem: At War With The World
