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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
Those aforementioned three bands started out making music that was somewhat more "respectable" (jazz fusion, progressive rock, etc.), but languished for years before finally finding success with something a little more accessible to the public. But Foreigner began their career making rock music with more polish than Mop N' Glo, and yet made no apologies. It was because of that they still remain reputable in this AOR-free climate of today's popular music. Even now, their crowning acheivement is their 4th album, appropriately titled 4 (1981).
By this time, Foreigner had recorded 3 platinum albums and were one of the biggest bands in the world. When they recorded 4, only four members were left & as a result, the music had to be augmented with session players. Have no fear though, 4 still contains music to rock the arenas with as well as apply to what is now called soft rock radio. That combination resulted in Foreigner's largest-selling album of their career with 5 hit singles & a rare high-selling album that is considered to be one of the greatest ever made.
The first single was the scorching rocker "Urgent", with a smoking saxophone from Motown legend Junior Walker & a vocal from master Lou Gramm that literally oozes sexual frustration. The unholy trinity of AOR could only dream of creating a song this delightfully raunchy.Read more ›

Foreigner 4 is a very polished disc by this very pop rock band from the 70 / 80's that really could kick out some of the best Pop Rock stuff that I ever heard on the Radio. Read morePublished 12 days ago by spigomars
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 morePublished on Dec 6 2012 by B. Keith
