4.0 out of 5 stars A wide range of music May 7 2004
Format:Audio CD
Although most people say that this is Foreigner at their best, I don't really think that this is their best album (that honor goes to their self-titled debut album) although it's a very good album and this is the first Foreigner album where they become a quartet instead of a sextet.
I'm going to rate this album track by track
Night Life: The album begins with a harder paced rocker about the night life in a big city and I don't think that this is a good way to start off the album (I would've chosen Juke Box Hero as the album opener) but the lyrics are good. 7/10
Juke Box Hero: This is one of the heaviest songs Foreigner has ever recorded and this song is a classic, I love it when it starts off soft then it gets hard, I think that it's cool when songs are like that. 10/10
Break it Up: This song is like a cross between of Cold as Ice and Blue Morning, Blue Day and they were both the 2nd songs off of the first two albums respectively and this song was a moderate hit reaching the Top 30 although it didn't appear on most of the 'Best Of' CD's. 8/10
Waiting For a Girl Like You: This is one of the most beautiful songs that I've ever heard and this song was actually Foreigner's first Top 10 hit in the UK and this song still gets heavy adult comptemporary airplay, I was saddened that this song didn't get the #1 spot when it should of. 10/10
Luanne: This is a mid-tempo pop/rock song and this was also released as a minor hit single reaching #75 on the charts and this song is deserves more recognition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock's great example of less is more June 13 2004
Format:Audio CD
Foreigner released their fourth album simply called Foreigner 4 in late June of 1981. The album was the band's first since 1979's Platinum seller Head Games. Head Games while a Platinum seller, did not sell as well as the first two albums and founding members Al Greenwood and Ian McDonald quit over creative and personal differences. Instead of breaking up,lead singer Lou Gramm, guitarist Mick Jones, drummer Dennis Elliot and bass player Rick Wills forged ahead with Mick and AC/DC and Def Leppard producer now Shania Twain's husband Mutt Lange co-producing and unleashed Foreigner's most successful album ever with Foreigner 4. The album was #1 for ten straight weeks and sold millions thanks to the massive Top 5 hits Urgent(with Jr Walker's sax solo) and the ballad Waiting For a Girl Like You. Also, the album contained rock radio classics like Juke Box Hero, I'm Gonna Win and the opening Night Life. My personal faves are Girl on the Moon and the closing Don't Let Go. To correct a one star reviewer, Foreigner continue to be heard on rock radio whilst Duran Duran were nothing but a bunch of Roxy Music poseurs. Foreigner lost popularity when Lou Gramm quit but Duran Duran lost popularity because their music was too tired and contrived and dated. I recommend Foreigner 4.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent album, and the end of an era May 25 2004
Format:Audio CD
4 (1981.) Foreigner's fourth album.
A good deal of classic rock artists failed to survive the transition between the seventies and the eighties, due to the changing rock music trends, and several of those who did survive were pretty much ruined. Fortunately, Foreigner managed to survive into the new decade pretty well. Mick Jones and Lou Gramm weren't ready to stop rocking. Foreigner was now down to four members, and they were recording their fourth album, so what better name to call their album than 4? It came out in 1981. Read on for my review.
This album is one of Foreigner's most popular ones, and it's also one of their best. To put it simply, this album deserves all of the positive feedback that fans give it. The band even recruited some guest musicians to play on the album, including saxophone player Junior Walker, and even Thomas Dolby (best known for his lone eighties hit, She Blinded Me With Science.)Three fairly large hits from the band came from this album, including the rock anthem Juke Box Hero, the legendary rocker Urgent, and the slow-paced love song Waiting For A Girl Like You. These songs are all excellent, and among the band's finest works. But, like with any Foreigner album, you have to look deeper than the hits to experience the true mastery that the band displays on the album. The opener, Night Life, is classic hard rock at its very best. Why didn't it become a bigger hit? Another severely underrated rocker is Woman In Black. Girl On The Moon and Don't Let Go close out the album, and they are other songs that never got the proper credit. Through and through, 4 is an album of big hits and underrated masterpieces alike.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good for arena rock April 3 2004
By Morton
Format:Audio CD
I dont usualy like arena rock and 1980's hairbands like I have said before but Foreigner did make a couple good songs, and a twodecent albums, this being one and the other being Double Vision.
I dont mean to sound all pretensious but I only like the hit singles off this album, and thats why to me Foreigner will always be nothing more then a singles band, kinda like Bon Jovi, or Paul McCartney. 'Juke Box Hero' is my favorite Foreigner song, and the best song on the album. 'Waiting For A Girl Like You' is a decent popish sappy love ballad to make out with your girlfriend with but nothing more, and it gets a bit tierd aafter a while. 'Urgent' is a pretty cool pop/rock song with its saxaphone intro and all that, probley the second best song on the album. 'Women In Black' is the last good song on the album, well for me anyways. Its kinda got a cool feel to it.
Look if your into 1980's rock you might love this, but its not for me, this 1980's rock isnt for me maybe, but all I can say is who ever say Foreigner was the best band of the 1980's must have been living under a rock!

2.0 out of 5 stars in it for the hits/$
Buy their singles, if you must -- their only good one was Urgent -- but avoid the discs/alblums which are full of half-baked filler. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars The one sign that AOR didn't have to be sterilized!
What was famous in the 1970s & 80s as AOR is more the subject of ridicule today, being a way of conjuring up old memories courtesy of songs that couldn't & wouldn't stay out of... Read more
