Johnny Foreigner - Johnny Foreigner Vs. Everything

Their most accomplished record yet
Johnny Foreigner - Johnny Foreigner Vs. Everything
Never a band to do things by halves, Johnny Foreigner’s third album consists of seventeen songs and a whirlwind of sounds and emotions. Quirky but accessible, ebullient but tragic, it’s their most accomplished record yet. Whether it’s the elegiac lament of ‘Johnny Foreigner Vs You’ or the frenetic, frantic scramble of opener ‘If I’m The Most Famous Boy You’ve Fucked, Then Honey, Yr In Trouble’, it’s an album full of yelps, squawks and angular/mathy melodies that captures life at its most brittle, brutal and beautiful. Seventeen songs may sound like a lot, but as soon as they’re over, you’ll want to play it through again.

8/10
