    Don't bother with the new Boston. There are 3 singers (Delp, The Delp-clone from the last studio record and tour, and a female singer!) on this one.
    Go to WinMx and put in BOSTON CORPORATE AMERICA and you'll find about 10 lousy songs. Pretty wimpy record!

    I'm closing this fuckin' thread.........Boston sucks............just kidding.......

    I did hear one new tune over at melodicrock.com.

    A piece of shit........they need to listen to Foreplay/Longtime and take some notes.
    Actually I think most of us are Dave, Sam, and Mike fans. There's just a small group of people who have strange allegiances and like to get into petty pissing contests that I can't believe everyone on this site isn't bored of. - Brett

    Granted, the song, "Corporate America," has some wierd techno crap in it, but when the guitar kicks in, it's pretty heavy. Another song, can't remember the name, is pretty cool, slow, kind of modern sounding, but cool, nonetheless. The one ballad I've heard, though, is pretty lame. I am excited for this album. I love Boston.

    You guys are bumming me out with the negative reviews. I was hoping for a good album and a tour to follow. Is it really that bad?

    That's why I suggested downloading the songs first. I was pretty disappointed with it.

    Haven't heard much for these guys in ages. How many original members of the band are left? It cracks me up how some bands continue to use the name when there are 1 or 0 original members left.

    I never really cared for Boston. That guitar dude did make a neat little gizmo called The Rockman but other than that I put them into the catagory with Foriegner

    With Boston it's a little tricky, because even though there are 5 guys pictured on the first album's cover, from what I understand only 4 of them contributed to the recording of the album and two of those guys' contributions was minimal at best. So basically Boston has always been Tom Sholz on instruments and Brad Delp on vocals. But then on their fourth album - Walk On - they didn't even have Delp. He's supposed to be back on this one, but from the post above I'm disappointed to learn he doesn't do 100% of the lead vocals. Gary Pihl has been part of the group since like '87, other than that the slots for live performances have been pretty interchangeable.

    Well, with Boston, only Tom Scholtz and Brad Delp are really important. Even Delp is deemed expendable at times. It's like Whitesnake, except the main guy is the guitarist/organist, so it's ok for it to be called Boston.
