EDITORS’ NOTES

Foreigner’s Keith Olsen–produced second album plays pretty much like all of their records: soaring vocals, thick Bad Company–like riffs, several tenderhearted moments for the girls and a few headbangers for the boys. It’s very arena rock circa the late ’70s. Besides the three hit singles (the title song, “Blue Morning, Blue Day,” and the crazily infectious “Hot Blooded”), highlights include a proggy instrumental (“Tramontane”), a rocker with baroque-y backbone (“Back Where You Belong”), a late-night comedown (“I Have Waited So Long”), a Toto-ish ballad (“You’re All I Am”), and a scorching non-LP live version of Betty Wright’s soul chestnut “Love Maker.”
