Review Type: 

Since their reunion in 2005, Foreigner has become a very successful unit again, despite only founder Mick Jones remained from the legendary line-up. However with Kelly Hansen he has found not only someone who could match the warm timbre of Lou Gramm but also improve and add his own identity to the vocals of the many classic songs the band has produced in their 40 years of existence. Of course many best of albums have passed the revue but this time a live registration with mainly the ballads was a first. During the last years Foreigner have toured with an acoustic version of their show and ‘I Want To Know What Love Is’ has captured this moment both on audio and dvd. Stripped down from all bells and whistles these acoustic versions still stand tall which says not only a lot of the strength of these compositions but also about the craftsmanship of these talented musicians. Furthermore some new arrangements and especially strong and harmonic backing vocals make this release a true masterpiece from beginning ‘til end. Awesome!
