Foreigner: 4

Gene Sculatti, Creem, October 1981

This is what? These guys’ second or third LP since Mick Jones publicly declared F’gner ain’t dinosaurs and that they were really starting to get, er involved with "the new music scene." Not that the fabled yob squad behind ‘Hot Blooded’ had gone ‘punk’, mind you, but the guys didn’t want to be left holding the dry ice in case New Wave did happen to seize the day.

Total word count of piece: 300
