Album of the Day
THIS IS THE NODE AOD FULL TEMPLATE
With three Americans and three Englishmen in their line-up, Foreigner's name was appropriate everywhere on the globe, and the band's irresistible arena rock brought it immediate success around the world. The sextet's self-titled 1977 debut was a smash thanks to such tracks as "Headknocker," "Long, Long Way From Home," "Feels Like The First Time" and "Cold As Ice" - the latter two Top 10 U.S. singles – and the album quickly went multi-platinum. There's no denying the craftsmanship of these songs or the one-two punch of vocalist Lou Gramm and guitarist Mick Jones; the four bonus demos on the Expanded Edition of FOREIGNER make that chemistry even clearer. The band's original drummer, Dennis Elliott, turns 65 today, and we'll celebrate the birthday with another spin of this AOR classic.
