Product Description

Amazon.ca

"Better music through science" was the Epic Records-coined slogan that Boston leader Tom Scholz hated, but this masterwork of studio-happy, high-school-parking-lot music earned it. Scholz fine-tuned his overdubbed guitar orchestra to a pitch that a thousand subsequent album-rockers couldn't resist. And why should they? Where the band's later records were hardly worthy of note, Boston pulls together classic after classic: "More Than a Feeling," "Peace of Mind," "Hitch a Ride." The pseudo-cosmic ambience invites scoffs as the year 2000 approaches, but it's really just part of the disc's charm. Let it take you home tonight. --Rickey Wright

I just purchased my sacd player and picked up Boston and Billy Joel's the Stranger at the same time. After listening to the Stranger, my mouth dropped. Billy's voice coming from the center speaker and all the other instruments and melodies coming from every different direction. Then I put in Boston and couldn't tell a difference from the cd version I already own. I think it's one of the best albums, but if you already own it on cd, don't bother upgrading - there's nothing special about the SACD version.

I love this album by Boston. I bought it in SACD format, but it's nothing like the other SACD's I bought. It only plays out of 2 speakers and my sub. It sounds "okay", but I was pretty disappointed. Nothing comes out of the center channel and the rear speakers. What's with that?

Where would classic rock be had Boston's self-titled debut album not been released? This is one of the greatest cds I own. 3 years ago, I had never heard of them...and now I own all of their albums and even saw them in concert last summer - which was an experience I will never forget! If you're new to classic rock, I think Boston's debut album would be a terrific place to start.

In 1976 Tom Scholz after a few years of trying to achieve something in the music buisness decided that after his last attemp he was going to sell all his equipement and do something else.He had been trying to make a succesfull band since 1970 basicly just recording tapes in his basement.In 1975 Scholz borrowed Aerosmith's recording equipement and recorded what would be the band's first album.I am sure glad that it turned out to work if not we would have never had the chance to listen to the wonderfull and timeless album that is "Boston".In fact not only did it work,it turned out that it became one of the best-selling debut album with over 17 millions albums sold(if not the best-selling one),but you probably knew that by now.30+ years latter it is still as good as it was back then and hasn't lost any of its appeal.The band had good competition that year,Fleetwood Mac's "Rumours",KISS'"Destroyer",Aerosmith's "Rocks" and planty of others but managed to be on top with its distinctive sound which attracted both rockers and radio stations.It had a fews succesfull singles and most of these songs are still played on the rock stations even today,right there that should tell you something.

Boston were said to have a sort of futuristic sound and were even marketed as "music trought science" as other reviewers have said.But Tom Scholz has often said that he did not use synthetizers for the album to get the sound,well whatever he did,he made it right!The album was commercial rock yeah,but this stills rocks to me,it just has more melody to it and it attracts a wider range of people.The musicians weren't incredible,Brad Delp did have an amazing voice and they were good but not extremely gifted musicians,still they played very well and everything sounds good,voices,guitars,bass,drums,all!

A few months after my arrival a fellow group from my native Boston, Mass. coincidentally called Boston released their self-titled debut album in September of 1976. Boston was a great band that was the mastermind of guitarist Tom Scholz and frontman Brad Delp. In addition, there was guitarist Barry Goudreau, bassist Fran Sheehan and drummer Sib Hashian. The album was maily recorded in Scholz's basement but you would not have known. The album is still a staple of album rock and classic rock radio today and is the largest selling debut album in history(not even poseurs like Alanis Morrisette or the 90s equal to The Starland Vocal Band called Hootie and the Blowfish could topple) with 17 million sold in the US alone and peaked at #3. I first heard and received this album on my 11th birthday on cassette in January of 1987 and still is one of my favorites today. The album's opener More Than a Feeling was a great song and was a monster hit. Other standouts are the rocking Peace of Mind and the first half closing Foreplay/Long Time. Tom did most of the guitar work on the album while Barry did not join until the sessions were just about finished nor did Fran. Rock and Roll Band was written about how the band got their deal with Epic. Smokin, Hitch a Ride, Something About You and Let Me Take You Home Tonight round out this masterpiece. Despite the fact it was recorded in 1976, it sounds like it was recorded yesterday and this band got the success it deserved because of the music and not how well they dressed! Highly recommended as well as Don't Look Back, Third Stage, Walk On and Greatest Hits but avoid Corporate America.

Boston's 1976 debut album countering both the Progressive Invasion from the UK and disco frenzy back home became the fitting album to commemorate bicentennial mood and filled the need for Americans to get the music of their own that can be really proud of.
Reflecting the 70s when progressive sound was trendsetting, the band uses the state of the art techno gadgets and created new genre of rock'n roll. And they used clean high-toned vocal harmonies to get the better of such synth backings. PEACE OF MIND is the typical of such gem creating the healing of our mind. FOREPLAY/LONG TIME is an excellent coupling of progressive instrumental and feel-good pop music. ROCK'N ROLL BAND and SMOKIN' are the rejuvenated mainstream American pop. HITCH A RIDE, SOMETHING ABOUT YOU also have the impressive high-tone chorus. LET ME TAKE YOU HOME TONIGHT well wraps up this album having both soft healing pop and aggressiveness of prog-heavy rock at the latter part.

Essential for classic rock fans.
