Amanda is OK. How this is Boston's only number one hit is beyond me. Probably just goes to show that ballads get more airplay on more stations. I can skip "The Launch" (it's not even really a song!), "My Destination", "A New World", and "To Be a Man". That's three and half tracks worth that I think are essentially wasted.
The other real problem with this album is that it never sounds like Scholz is playing with a real band. Compare the drumming on this with Sib's from the first one, and you'll conclude that there's a whole artistic component missing. Not to mention that the drums sound like they're in some sort of sound-absorbing box.
"Third Stage" is another one of those albums where I get the impression a talented group didn't get enough outside input on song selection. Note to aspiring bands: Write constantly and throw out half the stuff. Keep the best.
There are a few good tracks here, namely Amanda, I Think I Like It, and Hollyann, but nothing really measures up to anything on Don't Look Back or Boston.
