While the U.S. was being swept up by disco mania in 1978, Foreigner issued another hard rock tour de force, DOUBLE VISION. It was unthinkable that the sextet could outdo its solid 1977 self-titled debut, but it somehow did. Lou Gramm and company issued another set of rock radio staples and rock-steady album tracks, the best-known being such perennial arena rockers as "Hot Blooded" and the title track. But the highpoints didn't just stop there--such oft-overlooked compositions as "Blue Morning, Blue Day," "Lonely Children," and "I Have Waited So Long" are just as strong. DOUBLE VISION solidified Foreigner's standing as a '70s rock sensation.
