Johnny Foreigner - Vs Everything

Rating: 7

Johnny Foreigner’s enviable talent is to capture an air of youthful exuberance potent enough to make even the most jaded old rocker feel like a teenager again. Lyrically, nostalgia, relationships and the power of music are high on the agenda. Although some of the quieter tracks can overstay their welcome, this is a well-structured album, hopping between these and frantic, uplifting songs that prove Johnny Foreigner have a firm handle on both melody and noise. The band are at their most life-affirming when the music reaches mach speed, the drumming is frenzied and the excitable vocals delivered with such enthusiasm it practically demands a smile.
