Review Summary: If it isn't broke, don't fix it.
Let's delve into a much older album than my previous review. As a long time fan of Foreigner, I find this record to be my favorite of their discography. First-time listeners will praise the vocal performance of Lou Gramm and the instrumentation of Mick Jones, Ian McDonald, and Dennis Elliot.
The album opens amiably with "Hot Blooded", an upbeat track with consistent lyrical content. Personally, I enjoyed this track and consider it my favorite off the album. However, it does maintain as mentioned, a somewhat repetitive lyrical message. Words are repeated for emphasis and Gramm's technique is near flawless. "Hot Blooded" is then followed by the slower-paced "Blue Morning, Blue Day." This track showcases Gramm's vocal ability at its pinnacle as the slow pace creates a relaxing, laid-back song. The title track, "Double Vision", track six, reiterates the upbeat vibe that opens the album. The album maintains a polished, infinite sound throughout. Another example of consistency is its similarity to its predecessor, the group's self-titled debut. Maintaining the same, unique formula works quite well as Gramm's vocals at times seem almost second nature and effortless. Among the iconic singles that this record produced are some memorable non-singles, such as "The Damage is Done" and "Headknocker." Sit back and relax, because you have a treat on your hands.
