In a Foreign Town is the 16th studio album by the English singer-songwriter Peter Hammill. It was originally released in 1988 on Enigma Records, and was subsequently reissued on Hammill's own Fie! label. The album has not proved popular with some of Hammill's fans, due largely to the rather dated 1980s rhythm tracks and production.

Peter Hammill 컬렉션을 완성하세요. I LOVE this album! I must say that because it's tremendously underrated among Hammill fans. But, having been a demented Hammill fanatic for 23 years, I think I can have a say. First, never mind the drum machines, never mind the 80's FM synthesis, care about the songs themselves. You'll find that "Hemlock", "Invisible Ink", "Time To Burn", "The Play's The Thing" and "Under Cover Names" are among the best songs Hammill has written. And the rest of the album is not a filler, either

Produced by Hammill himself, the album is far more upbeat than most of his past work, and sounds like mid-'80s Genesis at times. But it may be one of Hammill's most musically varied albums; just give a listen to the new wave sound of "Invisible Ink" (one of the album's catchiest and strongest tracks), the Talking Heads-like "Sci-Finance (Revisited)," and the Adrian Belew/King Crimson sound of "Auto.
