Foreigner 'Can''t Slow Down'

6 posts in this topic

So I picked this album up, and I think it's an awesome effort. I suppose I'm a bit biased, because I'm a huge Kelly Hansen fan because of his previous band Hurricane, and his stint in Unruly Child, as well as being involved in a bunch of tribute albums. Jeff Pilson's involvement as bassist, and backing vocals only seals the deal.

How about the rest of you? Awesome effort? Or is it nothing without Lou?

well, Lou has been through hell, and now really is only half the vocalist he was. I saw Foreigner with him at a casino like 10 years ago and his voice was toast back then.

Foreigner is one of my all time fave bands.

That said, I really haven't listened to much of anything since Kelly Hansen joined. For the record, I thought the one album they did with Johnny Edwards was pretty good. I did like Hansen in Hurricane. I think he has developed a following of his own with Foreigner.

I heard this album sold well its first week out of the gate. I will have to listen to it. Mick Jones really is the heart of the sound, but Lou's vocals set them apart. But I think the band lineup the way it is now makes more sense then trying to have Lou Gramm kill all the songs.

Do you have the new Kiss album too?

I've listened to this a few more times, and I'm still incredibly pleased with it. It's slightly more mellow than the hard rock I'm accustomed to, but that's probably why I like it. 'When it comes to Love' is a great, not too sugary ballad, and 'Angel Tonight' almost sounds like Danger Danger and Giant did a collab. Simply awesome.

Do you have the new Kiss album too?

Nah, I'm not a terribly huge KISS fan, and have a few other albums to chew through from the likes of Lynch Mob, Danger Danger, and the upcoming Winger one.

melodicrock should have the winger album review up soon.

to me, i love winger 'in the heart of the young' but i think winger was more of a producer creation than the band being good on its own. "can't Get Enuff" is one of the tunes I still turn up to 11 in the car to get a throbbing bass fix, which is a lot easier to do now with Ford Sync. 'play artist winger'

Danger Danger? their first album is a complete classic! they have a new CD right now actually, but the soundbytes didn't resonate with me immediately.. i will have to give it more time.

I will prob get the Kiss CD after i listen to some soundbytes.

did you like Survivor? I just got Jimi Jamison 'Crossroads Moment' in the mail today, and I gotta tell you, its 80's done well. I had heard the new Foreginer was mellow but still good. You might like Crossroads Moment if you like that.

I actually liked the last Foreiger album prior, back in 94 or whatever.....cant even remember the name of it. Song on it 'white lie'. decent CD.
