Foreigner Head Games Hybrid SACD
"Head Games," "Dirty White Boy" continue group's hit streak
The moment Head Games begins, a nastier, grittier tone is established, and it becomes apparent that Foreigner is bringing something new to the table. Namely, an edgier, leaner sound built around stronger guitars and harder rhythms.
The heaviest record of the band's career, the 1979 effort functions as irrefutable proof that the quintet rocked as hard as anybody in the mainstream and did so without losing sight of the melodies that put it at the top of the charts. And with Head Games, there Foreigner would stay.
Half-speed mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity's collectible audiophile Hybrid SACD of this longtime favorite classic-rock staple bursts with tremendous dynamics, soaring vocal timbres, punchy dynamics, and newfound instrumental separation. With more emphasis placed on Mick Jones' guitar riffs and meatier grooves, you may just find yourself investing in a new power amp to get every last degree of detail that's been uncovered!
Synonymous with AOR (album-oriented rock), Foreigner essentially perfects the style throughout this concise, focused, down-and-dirty ten-song set. The key to any memorable 70s rock record is a catchy single, and the quintet has several lying in the waiting.
Longtime fans will be thrilled to hear the subtle nuances now fully discernible amidst a gargantuan soundstage. This product is a Hybrid SACD designed to play in both CD and SACD players, as well as all SACD-compatible DVD players.
