Re: Foreigner versus Journey!

I've always suspected that Foreigner, Journey, REO Speedwagon and Styx are all the same band, recording under different names.

Re: Foreigner versus Journey!

I'm a tad more inclined towards Journey than I am Foreigner, but I've always got time for both!

For the record, my two favorite tracks by Journey are...





As for Foreigner, it's probably...





With honorable mention going to a solo Lou Gramm number, as well as an unlikely live cover version from 1987...!

With all due respect, "meat and potatoes" is not necessarily synonymous with "interchangeable," nor "popular" with "generic"...

I don't deny that they are or were all popular, but they all sound pretty much the same to me, sorry.

Re: Foreigner versus Journey!

I like some of the tracks on the first 2 or 3 albums by each band.
I suppose Foreigner...a bit more bite/edge to the music in the early days.. ...and Ian McDonald is on the first 3 and he came from Crimson.
The first 2 Journey are interesting and not just AOR stuff. Greg Rolie and Neil Scohn were both in Santana and on the first 3 Journey...as well as Aynlsey Dunbar on drums who played with some cool rockers in his career.

Neither? I'm not inclined to own / purchase any of their albums (even a greatest hits).

Re: Foreigner versus Journey!

First 3 Foreigner albums are great. I like them a lot more than Journey.

Foreigner on the strength of tunes such as I Want to Know What Love Is, Hot Blooded and Dirty White Boy.
