i still love more than a feeling that sonic burst alone is tight.they had a certain style about there music.the older material works far better than the later material.they are one of those bands that make you go what if?

only we didn't know it at the time. Why the need [for this album]? If you own Boston's first, you already have their "best" and even that is (or should be) solely for nostalgia's sake. And "The Star Spangled Banner"? Oh puh-leaze. The cover art is appropriately cheesy - they're still shlepping around that upside-down-guitar-as-spaceship. ...

If you're looking for good old bread and butter American rock, stick with the likes of Styx or REO, not the over-porduced Boston. Ever notice how Boston NEVER released a live album? Because they are NOT capable of pulling these songs off live. Tom Sholtz is a smart man in the studio but it's obvious he could never pull these off live and maybe that's why all the talented members left the band over the years. Buy the first CD and you'll have the only "Greatest Hits" you need.

One of the pioneers of music-making. One performer lays down multiple tracks. Very radio-friendly stuff, but amazing compilation here. If you're a die-hard, this one might disappoint. For me? Love it

Being a Boston fan from day one must have been very tough on the devoted. Tom Sholtz, guitarst, keyboardist, and a meticulous studio wizard that makes Mutt Lange recordings sound like Nirvana, worked at a snail's pace, taking almost 3 years to record their follow-up to their mega-hit debut, and calling that 'rushed'. It took 6 years each for the next two albums to be recorded and released, and by that time, Boston was basically Sholtz's solo project.
Through it all, as this cohesive collection shows, the sound remains the same, layered, harmonized, smooth, crisp. Best of Boston collects 5 songs from their debut, a few more each from Don't look Back and Third Stage, and one from the underrated '94 release, Walk On. It flows like a good album should, with some songs going right into the next just as they did on the original albums. Very few things are missing except notably, Hitch a Ride, but that would have placed too much reliance on their debut. Another song from Third Stage and Walk On would've also been nice, they're underrepresented here.
The new songs are considerably more problematic. Higher Power is a great song, bringing back original vocalist Brad Delp back into the mix, but two versions of it are unneccesary. The Sholtz-sung Tell Me is very weak, meandering, and uninteresting, and The Star Spangled Banner? What? Didn't Hendrix already do this? It should've been left in the history books. Removing the SSB and the second Higher Power would've cleared way for a couple more late-period songs that deserved it.
This collection serves as a fine introduction to Boston.

Maybe I'm flogging a dead horse - but once again I reiterate what I have said time and time before when it comes to oldies compilations [and, like it or not, Boston now qualifies as part of the oldies group]. If a company is going to issue such a collection under the title "Greatest Hits" they had better make sure that all the hits are there - especially when the artist concerned only HAD a handful to begin with.
Boston - consisting of MIT mechanical engineer graduate Tom Sholz on guitar and keyboard, vocalist Brad Delp, guitarist Barry Goudreau, Fran Sheehan on bass, and drummer Sib Hashian - had exactly six hits for Epic from 1976 to 1979 - and one of those is left out of this compilation - 1977's Long Time which reached # 22 in March and, as such, was a "greater" hit than any of Peace Of Mind [# 38 in June 1977], A Man I'll Never Be [# 31 in January 1979], and Feelin' Satisfied [# 46 in May 1978].
Each of those are here, along with their first, More Than A Feeling, which peaked at # 5 in November 1976, and their best for Epic, 1978's Don't Look Back, which topped out at # 4 that October. But why leave out one of their better Epic offerings? Also, Feelin' Satisfied was their last hit as a multi-artist group as the band broke up at this point, with Goudreau later forming Orion The Hunter in 1982 [one minor hit in 1984].
In 1986 Scholz and Delp got back together as a duo with MCA and, still calling themselves Boston, had a smash # 1 with Amanda, but this really had no connection to the larger band sound of the 1970s. They also had a # 9 in early 1987 with We're Ready and a # 20 that May with the Can'tcha Say (You Believe In Me)/Still In Love medley.
