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.

Boston had one really good album. In fact Id say it is one of my favorites. Of course Im tlaking about BOSTON, their first album and unarguably their finest. All the radio mainstay hits are there, as in practically hte whole album. thankfully almost all of it made it here. Their 80's stuff, like the openers Tell me, and higher power are reasonably good, but Boston wasnt an enormous hits machine, and it shows through the double tracks on here. The star spangled banner reprise is ok, but not really much of a "hit". After higherp ower though, Boston cranks up their oldie goldies, like more than a feeling, Peace of mind, dont look back, the magnificent foreplay/long time, and smokin. a few more 80s hits, Amanda, Man Ill never be and cool the engines are pretty catchy, but not quite up to the earlier stuff (A lot of brilliant 70s bands fell through in the 80s). All in all a pretty good album, if not middle of the road. But worth a listen definitely for the old monster hits.

This is a fantastic collection of songs representing the storied recording career of BOSTON. Mastermind Tom Scholz delivers the goods in a big way. The songs have been remastered and tweaked so the sound quality is superb. If you already own the previous Greatest Hits package, get this one too because it offers a different selection of songs as well as a new booklet with never before seen pictures as part of a tribute to Brad Delp and as a retrospective of BOSTON. Having heard the remastered versions of the debut and Don't Look Back, I was delighted by how much better "Amanda" and other songs from Third Stage, Walk On, and Corporate America sound. Tom is working on a new BOSTON cd and I can't wait to hear it. When he has time, I hope that we get a remastered version of Third Stage, Walk On, and Corporate America as well. I know, I'm asking for a lot.... but it would be great. Too bad I can't give this one 10 stars..... and a guitar spaceship too!

if you're just a casual fan of Boston, you might want to just stick with their first album, "Boston". As one reviewer has already pointed out, Boston wasn't exactly a "hit machine". There is a reason for that and it's not due to "writer's block". Tom Scholz was (is) a victim of his own perfectionism. He just can't "sign-off" on an album until it meets his demanding standards. It's those standards that (at least partly) have kept Boston from cranking out album after album. But, to the discriminating listener, that's not all bad because the professional crafting of Boston albums set the bar for the industry.
Now, to this album. Not a greatest hits album in the truest sense because not all of the band's best are here such as, "Hitch a Ride" and "Let Me Take You Home Tonight". To include those two songs, however, would give the listener a duplicate copy of the first album (minus one song). Probably not a good way to try and sell new albums. New songs, "Tell Me" and "Higher Power" are very good and the addition of "The Star Spangled Banner/4th of July Reprise" is a nice touch. The other selections "More Than a Feeling", "Foreplay/Long Time", "Amanda", "Rock & Roll Band", etc., are well-known Boston standards that won't disappoint.
As Boston followers have found out, it's tough to be a fan of an under-achieving, perfectionist band. They always leave you wanting more. That's still the case with Boston and their "Greatest Hits" album. But, as those same fans have found out, what Boston does ... they do well! They certainly have stayed true to form with this album.
