    Boston has a new album "Corporate America" out on Tuesday. I listened to a few of the songs online at http://www.boston.org/ and also at amazon.com and they are really good! I wasn't that excited at first because I thought that "Walk On" was pretty disappointing, but this new stuff is up-to-par with their first three albums, IMO.

    I think the new stuff is alright, nothing spectacular. It took awhile to grow on me, just like Walk On. I think it'll be better than Walk On as long as they get a real drummer this time around. It's cool that they've got Brad Delp as well as Fran this time around. I don't think the new material is anywhere near the level of the first two albums (I didn't like Third Stage. Couldn't stand the 80s drums. My least favourite Boston album.), but then again it's in a completely different vein than that stuff. the tune Corporate America is pretty far off from Don't Look Back, but it's still kinda cool after a few listens.

    When the F are these guys going to put out a live album of the whole fist album and Amanda and call it quits? That's the only thing left they could make some decent record sales on. They have to have allot good old live recordings. What the hell are they waiting for?

    It's pretty amazing that the guitar sound is relatively the same after all these years. I heard some of their new tune on the radio and knew it was Boston after a few notes. I'll have to take a stroll to boston.org to listen to it some more. Thanks for the link.

    I heard I had a good time on the radio some weeks back and I knew I had to buy it.

    I went to the website and I heard some Oasis sounding shit on top of it and was not too impressed.

    I like the Tom Scholz shit on there but that Oasis sounding spunk has got to go. That aside, I think it's a good album. I'd say "I had a good time" is my favorite cut.

    Could've done without the extreme environmentalist/liberal message on the back of the insert, but I'm glad I got it.

    All in all the stuff that is Scholz is still Boston.
    FUCK THE DUMB SHIT!!!!

    man, I dont know. I think its good that they (he) is still creating music and doing what he enjoys, but this is definetly a band that blew there creative load in the 70's. The first Boston album is nothing short of pure musical marvel. The most innovative? probably not, but just excellent songwriting and execution. Helped define the era.
    Dont Look Back and Third Stage I lump as the same, some great songs there but it really starts to dip. I'm just about finishing Corporate America, and yikes, its not for me. The only song I can tolerate is With You, nice song except the Scholtz guitar solo crashes it like Chris Farley at a poetry reading. They are there own cover band. Enjoy

    Never did like "Amanda" though I did like several tunes off the 3rd Stage album. However I don't see Sholz putting out a live album, he's too much a strict perfectionist and control freak that a live sound would just be too raw for him.

    This is my least favorite Boston album, but it's still better than most of the stuff out nowadays. If only they got rid of that stupid country song, the live song that's exactly the same as the studio version, and added two more rockers in their places, to balance out the ballads, then it would be a really good album.

    Personally, as ridiculous as this will sound, I think "I had a good time" alone is worth the price of the cd. It is one of the best songs I have heard in a long time. The guitar riff is so damn melodic and catchy. I wish the rest of the album was more consistent. Only 3-4 good songs.

    I gotta go with jonjuan on this one. Remove the country song (which, as many have stated, is not a bad song--it just doesn't belong on a Boston record), and the live version of "Livin' for You" (which DOES sound exactly like the studio version), and put a couple more rockers on there.

    I like the album quite a bit, but it's Boston's weakest effort to date and could have been much better. I mean, think about it. They take 20 years between each release. Isn't that enough time to make sure every cut is quality? And to put more than 10 tracks and barely over 40 minutes worth of music on the disc?

    In closing, I will state that "I Had a Good Time" is one of my all-time favorite Boston songs. It has the classic sound. It also doesn't hurt that Bradley provides the lead vocals for it...All the Bradley songs were pretty strong, imho.

    You are correct, BAM5150. I was being facetious. Walk On came out in '94, and Third Stage in '86, and Don't Look Back in '78, so it IS more like 8 years. It just SEEMS like 20 years. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]

    I like I Had A Good Time but just don't get why they're still using an electric drum set like it' 1986.

    Well I had it for about a week and I can say I think really like it. (Pun intended).

    "I Had a Good Time" is one of the best songs I've heard in a long time. "Stare Out Your Window" is good song.
    "You Gave Up On Love" , good song...
    I'm waiting for the rest of the cd to grow on me.

    All and all, I can listen to the whole cd at one time and enjoy it! [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
    "Keep honking buddy. I'm reloading..." -The Mard

    "......HEY!.............alright............." -BIG FOOT

    " I know what you're thinking: "Do I want to watch Mard? We know that horses were very strong and could actually stop airplanes from flying away. The ones made out of stone called "statues" -- occasionally came to life and rode off is a colonial cliche. How many more times do we need to hear about how the oppressive Raj's wore villainous black capes, crafted cunning plastic masks to impersonate people, and drained all the blood from their slaves so they could keep the fluid in bottles in their dungeons? I mean, YAWN!

    But if you're willing to sit through this dry sort of historical drama one more time -- or even just this dry historical review -- you will not be disappointed. In fact, some of you might just learn something they didn't teach you in school!-
