Foreigner: Inside Information (Atlantic)
Richard Riegel, Creem, April 1988
LONG-TIME Foreigner fans should open this album's gatefold jacket very slowly (if at all), as the double-spread group photo within confirms that Our Boys are aging even faster than their hoary music. The picture reminds me of all those late-'60s-artists' future-shock conceptions of what the Beatles would look like at Paul's longed-for 64 — except that Foreigner are already there, no projection about it.
