This is not like the Boston albums of old, where you could pop it in and enjoy every song. This is more hit and miss.
I enjoyed "You Gave Up on Love" and "I Had a Good Time". These are the two strongest tracks and fans of the traditional Boston sound will enjoy the driving tempos, screaming harmonies and heavy guitar. "With You" is a departure from the Boston power balad, but never the less is a great ballad with some power elements.
The rest of the album is unremarkable. The title track is a political statement, but is one of the few Boston songs that musically you can actually say is truly "bad". Other tracks have fleeting similarities with the Boston we know, but most sound tired and flat. They don't have the depth and power we are accustomed too.
Guys: Forget politics...we don't care. We want the music!
If you want to argue about Tom's drum synths, get the album, post a bad review, and don't let anyone see you rockin to Corporate America.
I've listened to the album several times now, and I wanna do it again. Thankfully I listened to the album before reading the reviews here.
