Synthesizers were pushed more up front for Foreigner's 1984 release, AGENT PROVOCATEUR, and it scored the band another monster hit. Just about every radio-oriented rock band of the mid-80's took the synth plunge at one point or another (with varying degrees of success), but Foreigner did not foresake their talent for penning anthemic love songs and rockers. This was proven by one of their biggest all-time hits, the ballad "I Want to Know What Love Is," which also turned out to be one of the year's top singles as well, while "Love in Vain" and "That was Yesterday" proved that the boys could still rock with the best of them.
