Boston's second outing. It's an overall great album, when it came out fans were led to believe it would be greater than their record debut album, the hype was over the top...so it did'nt do as well as their first album. A softer album and a definte must for a Boston fan. And talk about an awsome cover ! You can now get it at a reasonable price, wich today is a bonus.

Boston's second album Don't Look Back was rush-released in August of 1978. The album was the follow-up to the mammoth selling debut which has sold to date 17 million in the US alone and the pressure was on guitarists Tom Scholz(whom also wrote all the songs) and Barry Goudreau, vocalist Brad Delp, bassist Fran Sheehan and drummer Sib Hashian to deliver an album equal of its predecessor. While they were slowly trying to complete the album, Epic/CBS wanted a blockbuster for the last quarter of 1978. Despite Scholz's objections that he was not finished, seeing as the album is only 33 minutes long, CBS literally took the tapes and released Don't Look Back. The album stormed right to #1 on Billboard and sold FOUR million in its first month. Don't Look Back was the first Boston album I ever got which was the day after Christmas in 1986 and I played this baby constantly in elementary school whilst most of my fellow then-fifth graders were digging forgettable dribble like Europe and Bon Jovi, and it still sounds fresh today. Every song is excellent, it's difficult to say which one is my favorite. I would give the edge to A Man I'll Never Be which was a great epic which is such a beautiful song. The title track and Feelin' Satisfied are still rock radio staples and kick-ass songs. The closing Don't Be Afraid was a great way to close this superb album. If you like the first album, get this album too. Highly recommended!

Very similar in sound to their debut album, but the mood is a little more mellow. The production with the multi layered guitars, great vocals and vocal harmonies and excellent drumming are all still there as in the first record, but with a track like the brilliant ballad "A Man I'll Never Be" there is something that did not appear on the almost non stop rocking first album.
This album should be considered essential for those fans of classic '70's rock. The title track is one of the all time great rock tunes, with a lead run that just makes the hair on the back of my neck stand on end. Other stand out tracks are "Feelin'Satisfied" and "Don't Be Afraid".

All the songs are GREAT and usually you hear the same boston songs (more than a feeling,dont look back,long time foreply) on the radio but I think that their best song of all that you never here on the radio could be (A Man I'll Never Be) and also a lot of their songs from THIRD STAGE are also great but you never here them either. Boston is just a great group.

Close on the heels of their record-breaking debut release, Boston followed up with this highly successful sequel cd. Although not as critically acclaimed as the "Boston" album, "Don't Look Back" is very good in its own right. Once again, Brad Delp's incredible vocals shine through on the title track as well as my favorites "Its Easy" and "Feelin Satisfied". The late 70s and early 80s was the era of the great arena rock bands, and Boston was at the top of the list. This is a first-rate cd with searing guitars and top notch keyboards from Tom Scholz and the boys. Buy this great cd and take a trip back in time to the great arena rock days.

I don't think anyone can write a review of this album without comparing it to the first one so here goes:
This is one of the most incredible albums ever. Awsome guitars, unbelievable drums, of course Delp's voice is the best. Every song has that classic Boston feel. Compared to the first album, this is the perfect follow up. Not out doing theirselves, but simply making an album almost as good, if not the same, as the first album. Buy this (and the first for you idiots out there who haven't yet) or burn in hell for all eternity.... that is all.
