Foreigner - 4 Numbered Hybrid SACD

Foreigner 4 Numbered Hybrid SACD 

 

#1 1981 Album Teems With Hits: "Urgent," "Waiting for a Girl Like You," "Juke Box Hero". Foreigner's Most Consistent, Economical, and Cleanly Produced Record. Be A Juke Box Hero: Sound Will Rattle Your Walls and Shake Your Windows!

 

Want to be a juke box hero? Here’s your chance. Featuring Mutt Langes spotless production, contributions from Motown legend Junior Walker and new-wave icon Thomas Dolby, no less than three huge singles, and Foreigners most economical performances, 4 is classic-rock nirvana, a model of crystalline pop-rock melodies and lighter-flicking balladry. More than six million copies later, the 1981 record is still rightly discussed as a front-to-back masterpiece of precision, power, and economy. Its an album that demands to be experienced in the highest-possible fidelity.

 

Mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelitys hybrid SACD presents 4 in a room-filling, stadium-big sound that simply crushes whats heard on all prior digital versions. Replete with energetic rockers such as Urgent, Night Life, and Woman In Black, the record benefits from a sonic facelift that opens up the previously compressed dynamics, expands the dimensions of the soundstage, dials in a clear path to the instrumental images, and erases the ceiling that pressed down on Lou Gramms superhuman vocals.

 

For the first time, Langes obsessive, detail-oriented production can be enjoyed in all its splendid glory. Fresh off blockbuster success with AC/DCs Back In Black, Lange uses his magic touch on 4, pairing with guitarist Mick Jones who, armed with the best batch of riffs of his career, shared a the producers sentiment for discipline, efficiency, and cleanliness.

 

And so, on crisp tunes like Break It Up, pianos and hard-hitting guitars share the same space without ever impinging on one another or overstepping boundaries. The winning formula also propels Top 5 hits like the wildly funky Urgent, sent to new heights by Walkers dazzling saxophone solo, and the touching Waiting for a Girl Like You, a crossover smash that introduced Foreigner to soft-rock and adult-pop audiences.
