- This outstanding copy of the band’s third album earned outstanding Double Plus (A++) grades on both sides
- One of the better copies from our recent shootout – big, bold and lively with a punchy bottom end

- 4 stars: “Foreigner continued its platinum winning streak on Head Games, the band’s third album… and the supergroup’s successes would continue well into the ’80s.”
This copy showed us just how good this album can sound — BIG, rich and ENERGETIC.
As I’m sure you know, there is a Mobile Fidelity Half-Speed Mastered version of this album currently in print and I can only imagine how terrible it sounds.
