5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty darn good indeed. 20 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD
Whilst I prefer 'Universal Juviniles', 'Million Vacations' is packed with some seriously good material - hell, a mate of mine who hated the whole 'prog scene' owned a copy of the 'Paradise Skies' single. The album finishes off with two real classic Webster tracks - 'Rascal Houdi' and 'Reasearch' (at Beach Resorts) - but also includes firm favourites such as 'Moon Voices', 'Night Flights', and jeez! it's easier to say that the only non-superb songs are 'Sun Voices' and 'Look Out' (both good) - ultimately a pretty darn good album but if they'd only put 'Party' & 'Distressed' on this album instead of those two then this would have been their equal best album.

And sorry for all the '''s

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rocking Blast from Back When 21 May 2006
By JimR
Format:Audio CD
I still remember, vividly, seeing Max supporting Rush in London and being completely blown away by the vastness of their sound and the virtuoso range so remarkably demonstrated by the the band on stage. This album, better than any, demonstrates what made Max so special. Kim's guitar-work ranges from the delicate sensitivity of a neurosurgeon to the wild thrashing and manic picking of a caged beast. Tracks such as Rascal Houdi don't come along very often and it is worth getting this album for this alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Smashing Album - Max at his best 23 July 2004

This compilation is a showcase of the many writing and instrumental talents of Max Webster, Canada's answer to psychedelic rock. The best of their work since their debut with many notable singles an a unique style.

5.0 out of 5 stars . . . a million reasons to buy this album . . . 1 Sep 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A Million Vacations isn't neither the best nor the least of the Max albums. I bought it first in 1979 not long after it's been released, and their excellent "Live Magnetic Air" was also one of the first contacts I had with this group. Sooner or later, I got ALL the LP's ; Max Webster was -and will always be- my favorite band (or one of my few 'desert island' choices...). From their first album (includes the famous 'Hangover') to the electrifying "Universal Juveniles", Max Webster never lacked in terms of originality, versatility, and all their albums contain some great rock & roll moments of their own. The myth would like you to believe A Million Vacations isn't "as good" as their previous efforts, or is somewhat "more commercial". In my websterian point of view, A M V sounds more "progressive" (most of the songs have a rather complex musical structure). Not a description of some 'average' commercial stuff... If a song is best described as 'commercial', this could be 'Let Go The Line', although it is a very good song per se. On A M V, Kim Mitchell and his bandmates have decided to go for something really different (in this band's case, there's not a 'cheap beat' replica from one album to the other !); the content is less 'hard rock', less 'underground' than "Mutiny Up My Sleeve" (the darkest album from M W, although -perhaps- the most exciting), and makes A M V a 'summer-ized' disc. It has a 'vacation feel' into it, and that produces a pleasing and judicious contrast with "Mutiny Up My Sleeve". Vocals, in particular, are even better (if anything) than their earlier material. A key element here is to understand that every disc from this band is different (still, retaining their signature), thus a piece in the history of this band. There's a million reasons to buy this album, as any Webster albums, but I'll let you discover the music for yourself. I do NOT think this album "lacks the passion" and is "watered down" as reported somewhere in these reviews. After all, there's NO New Age here, and should I add A Million Vacations does have plenty of these good rock & roll moments you can expect from a band as good and unique as Max Webster.

5.0 out of 5 stars Max to the Max 20 Mar 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
One of the most frustrating things I experienced growing up in Canada was that Max Webster was only a local phenomenon. I always felt they should have achieved Van Halen type status. Now I'm old and I live in the U.S and I make my living in the music biz I still think Max should have been huge. Vacations is their best work although Mutiny up my Sleeve comes in a close second.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular rock music that is highly emotional and moody. 17 Dec 1998
By newman@snet.net - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A Million Vacations hit my CD player a few weeks ago and instantly became one of my favorites. Max Webster is a Canadian band that really knows how to write provocative music. The shapes, textures, and sounds that Kim Mitchell gets out of his guitar are unreal- he makes his instrument talk in a language anyone can understand. Kim's vocals are also quite ethereal at times. Keyboards and synthesizers provide a richer, more full sound that really reinforces the tracks. "Sun Voices", the record's masterpiece, is beautiful as well as visceral. Opener "Paradise Skies" is similarly musically exhilarating. There are so many outstanding tracks. A Million Vacations is a concept album that focuses on pleasure-seeking and beach-hopping, but does so in a unique, personal, and stylistically creative way. Bass playing and drumming are also excellent and just serve to bolster an already fabulous effort. Max Webster seems like a cross between Rush and Yes. No song on this album is really much over 5 or 6 minutes, though. I hope all of Max Webster's releases are as brilliantly creative and emotional as 1979's A Million Vacations. I'll keep you posted. -David Newman 1998

4.0 out of 5 stars Holds up through time. 7 Oct 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Though Max has put out plenty of great albums, Million Vacations, is the best in the catalog. The writing and flow of the music is unmatched in previous albums. The title song is on of the great cruising songs ever put out. Fire it on and move down the highway and take one of your own Million Vacations.
5.0 out of 5 stars THE Max Webster CD 17 Feb 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Truly, this is THE Max Webster CD, released as an LP in 1979 at the peak of the band's very bizarre career. Their wierd antics and solid, partytime rock'n'roll took them from local high school dances in '75 to New Year's Concerts at Toronto Maple Leaf Gardens in '80. At the time, it almost seemed that the main stream was ready for them when Million Vacations was released. The locally popular "Let Go the Line" received a lot of air play, while they toured in the states as the back up band, and then called the sister band to Rush.
Musically, they were performing in the studio and on stage at top form. It's what anyone over 35 remembers as 70s Rock'n'Roll. Its loud, wild and great travelling/cruising tunes. Lyrically, Pye Dubois is true to his form: "Igloo Omelette", painting eclectic images that captivate the feelings of that time. However, political undertones present in previous LPs are replaced by less complex material playing upon the struggles of coming to terms with identity (Research), destiny (Let Go the Line), and coping with mondain urban life of the 70s. (Million Vacation).
