"Foreigner's most lucrative years came during their first four albums, with their guitar-driven arena rock flair settling in nicely with the rest of the late-'70s music scene. Twelve of Foreigner's 16 Top 40 singles are from a six year span, between 1977 & 1982, which is why Records makes for such an entertaining collection of the b&'s early work. With cuts stemming from Foreigner, Double Vision, Head Games, & 4, Records lines up ten of their first 11 hit singles, somehow leaving out 1979's "Blue Morning, Blue Day." But even with this minor deletion, the album is agreeably brief, & it's the most opportune route in exploring Foreigner's best material. Both "Cold As Ice" & "Double Vision" are stellar examples of Lou Gramm's vocal gusto & Mick Jones' bang-on guitar playing, while favorites like "Urgent" (with Junior Walker on sax ), "Head Games," & "Feels Like the First Time," with its shiny keyboard segments, are unblemished radio-rock st&ards."
