The Day My Music Changed
Before this album came out in 1979, I was listening to pop idols like Leif Garrett and Rex Smith. I was about 14 years old at the time, and a male friend of mine that was a few years older than I was, popped this album on his stereo. From then on, Leif Garrett and Rex Smith went by the wayside.
I hadn't been introduced to this type of music yet. My mom was a country fan, and most of my girlfriends were listening to what now is called Album Oriented music. I had heard the likes of Simon and Garfunkel, The Beatles, Folk music and other things along those lines, but I had never heard anything like this before. I asked my friend who the band was, and, by the time we got to the end of that album, I had decided that all that slow and nice stuff, was not for me. I had become a Hard Rock/Metal Fan.
I did eventually get my own copy of this album. It was on cassette. I think I bought it when I was about sixteen. Since then I've replaced it with another cassette, and now I have a copy on CD. Finding a vinyl version would be really cool, but, I'm not sure how that will all work out.
This album has since become one of my favorites. So much so, that I've put some of my favorite songs from the album on my cellphone to listen to when I'm on the road for work.
My favorite songs on this album are: Feels Like The First Time, Cold as Ice, and Headknocker. Everyone knows the first two, but the third one is buried on the B-Side. I like it because it really rocks, and the words are kind of humorous. I thank my friend for helping me discover this album, and this kind of music.
If Foreigner is a good album, this one is even better. I have worn out two cassettes of this one.
This one, in my opinion, only has a couple of good songs on it, but the ones that are good, are very good. Traces of their roots are evident.
This one really rocks. I believe it is on the album called 4.
I almost wore out this section of my first cassette for this song.
A love song with a hard rock twist.
