Wow what have I been missing......
Greatest Hits is my first Boston purchase and wow what have I been missing all these years. I can't stop playing this fantastic album. Tremendous songs like "Higher Power", "Don't look back" and "Peace of mind" and the greatest ever "More than a feeling" and I'll never tire of listeneing to the hauntingly beautiful "A man I'll Never Be" These tracks are so unique and with such depth and feeling.This will not be the last Boston cd I'll purchase and I'd recommend it, you won't be disappointed. An absolute 5 stars!

Let's first get one thing straight. Generally most Melodic Hard Rock bands (Foreigner, Journey, Boston etc) are NOT CORPORATE!!! This is a steaming pile of BS put about by the Punk/New Wave obsessed music press of the late 70s and 80s. In Boston's case they were a hard working and struggling band for a few years playing the bars and clubs of Boston before they got a record deal. True Tom Scholz is a graduate of MIT who developed most of the electronics used by the band (this is the reason for their unique tonal quality), but they were never put together by some record company mogul (unlike the Sex Pistols, who were put together by record mogul Malcolm Maclaren and given a record contract with EMI with the specific purpose of being the English answer to American 'Garage' band The Ramones - in the same way that The Monkees were the American answer to The Beatles, I could also mention the fact that The Clash were from mostly wealthy backgrounds and were given a grant by their record company to go out and learn how to be 'working class'). But enough of that to the music, most of this selection comes from their seminal eponymous release from 1976, this is understandable since they never managed quite to scale the heights of that release again, however listening again to these songs in wonderfully 'remastered' form (I used to have the vinyl and unremastered versions of their albums) they've been given almost a new lease of life. Particularly pleasing are the tracks 'Piece of Mind', 'Foreplay/Longtime' and of course 'More than a Feeling' (Barclaycard advert watchers will be familiar with this one).Read more ›

Boston: Greatest Hits

I'm on a bit of a 70's rock retro fix at the moment and only really know Boston by the rock classic that is: 'More Than A Feelin'. On the strength of this one song I decided to buy the Greatest Hits package and overall I'm glad I did. A lot of the songs contain great 70's guitar riffs to get you reaching for your air guitar and at a price that won't break the bank. Sure there's a few duds lurking in the track-listng but thats not really a reason to miss out on tracks such as:

Piece of Mind, Foreplay-Longtime & Don't Look Back

BG's Verdict: I'd recommend this CD for anyone who likes the classic era of rock music (The 1970s) or to anyone wanting a cheap introduction to Boston!

Bargain.

Buy the first three albums.
Don't buy this album because: it misses out some of the best bits of the other albums, messess up the continuity between songs that the other albums half relly on (being partially conceptual in track listing terms), it includes songs that do not have the original singer and therefore feeling on them, and because you can get hold of the first three albums on CD really cheaply anyway.
The first three Boston albums are brilliant. Not even the artwork on this album has the same feeling, being computer generated, which completely goes against the original ethic of the band. There's a decided air of someone making a fast buck (and lack of repsect for the band) about the whole product. Go and buy the first three albums.

Even something as simple as a Greatest Hits compilation takes time when Tom Scholz is involved. Originally scheduled for release to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the release of Boston's debut album, the project was pushed back nearly a year and became the first Boston album to feature computer generated artwork and a ship at rest. Songs from the fourth cd, Walk On, are absent, as is any rational for a greatest hits package. Given the wide availability of second hand copies of all of Boston's previous four albums, Scholz and Sony used three new songs as bait to lure in consumers who otherwise have no need to waste their money on a greatest hits package. "Tell Me" is a mid-tempo ballad written by Scholz and featuring David Sikes on lead vocals. The song has nothing to recommend it and had it been released previously would not have been on a greatest hits package, quite unlike Higher Power, a foot-tapping rocker that opens with a quiet guitar shuffle before blasting off with the chorus and finishing with guitar and harmonica solos. The third "previously unreleased" track was in fact circulating among Boston collectors for a number of years, a 1994 promo-only instrumental of the US national anthem, The Star Spangled Banner, added here most likely because there were no other finished tracks on Scholz's shelves. Equally useless and not likely to be listened to more than once is the album's final track, a radio edit of Higher Power. Altogether, this is an uninspired compilation and except for Higher Power is for the consumer a complete waste of time and money.
