5.0 out of 5 stars Classic melodic rock! 26 Feb 2011
By Michael - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Boulevard were a melodic rock band from Canada and this is the Majestic Rock Records reissue of their second album Into The Street. Boulevard's music is a blend of strong songwriting and excellent musicianship with good quality production and killer vocals. The end result of this mix was a classic album of high quality melodic rock similar in style to Toto, Tim Feehan, Neverland, and early Richard Marx. Highlights include the opening song "Talk To Me", the melodic rocker "Lead Me On", the blissful sound of "Eye Of The Hurricane", the strong power ballad "Crazy Life", and the awesome playing in "Where Are You Now". Into The Street is a good example of what happens when everything comes together for a band and it's a shame that Boulevard faded so soon after the release of this album. Into The Street is definitely a melodic rock classic and is essential listening for fans of this style of music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Follow Up Album, An Essential Album For Fans Of 80s And Early 90s Rock 2 Jan 2013
By Kirk Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
You can tell the band hit the ground running on their second offering. It's a powerful album, featuring quite a few good songs. The recording quality has improved as well. Still, there's something about their first album, and their earlier works from Germany, that speak to me on a deeper level. If you're into 80s rock laced with a little synth, or early 90s rock, this album should definitely be added to your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have! 27 Mar 2012
By A L X - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm writing this review just to let you know that If you are a fan of classic 80's AOR then this is a must have. This band has a unique sound, crisp and clear vocals, full of melodic harmonies and great musicianship. Actually you must also own their first album, that one is more keyboard oriented as "into the streets" is more guitar oriented. Make no mistake, you won't regret it, both albums define what AOR really is. All songs are great, no fillers, but my favorite is "Crazy Life", man what a great song, go to YouTube and check the promo video of this song, it's just pure classic AOR breeze with great melodic moments. Too shame these guys from Canada didn't get what they deserved and only lasted 2 albums after quitting all thanks to the grunge wave, but I least we can still hear them today with these re-issues. Get both albums really.
5.0 out of 5 stars Popular AOR master-class!!! 4 Jan 2012
By Nikiforos V. Skoumas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"Into the street" is the second album by Canadian AOR band "Boulevard" originally released in 1990, reissued in 2010 by "Metal Mind Productions". The line up has remained fairly consistent since their 1988 debut, featuring lead singer David Forbes, guitarist Randy Gould, keyboardist Andrew Johns, saxophonist Mark Holden plus the new rhythm section of Tom Christiansen and Randall Stoll.

Technically "Into the street" provided a considerable departure from the sound of their debut "Blvd". The guitars have been brought to front carrying riffs, rhythm parts and sharing the melodic lines with the keyboards while saxophone leads have been substantially reduced and the bass takes a complementary role (though just as technical as before, indeed a key factor to the appeal of "Boulevard"s sound). One happily finds that the new rhythm section re-creates the intense, largely produced rhythm patterns found on their debut, being a big part of the "Boulevard" identity; furthermore Forbes once again becomes the tip of the spear, carrying all the core melodies impeccably crafting stellar melodic moments as "Where is the love" and "Lead me on".

Other highlights on "Into the street" are the groovy-melodic "Crazy Life" the bass-driven "Where are you now" and the climactic "Eye to eye". Somewhat harder-sounding that their debut, "Into the Street" provided a faithful continuation of the "Boulevard" sound delivering in the process even more memorable radio-rockers which should appeal to seasoned as well as younger fans of melodic rock.
4.0 out of 5 stars Classic AOR album 27 Jun 2009
By Justin G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
1990's Into the Street is the second album from Canadian AOR band Boulevard, whose keyboard-heavy melodic pop/rock style was similar to 80's bands like Toto, the Outfield and Mr. Mister. You know that quintessential "80's movie soundtrack" pop/rock sound? Boulevard had that sound down perfectly.

Into the Street is just a solid AOR album from start to finish, and is on par with what the Outfield was releasing at the time. There aren't really any standout tracks, but that's only because they're all equally impressive. The songs range from poppy ballads to poppy (kind of) rockers. They're all catchy, melodic, and well-written and executed.

Boulevard never really got much radio play, and by 1990 this kind of AOR was already sounding pretty dated (and with grunge just around the corner). Into the Street ended up being Boulevard's final release.

If you're a fan of the lighter edged AOR acts from the 80's, you'll definitely want to check out Boulevard.

Edition Notes: Into the Streets was reissued in 2010 by both Yesterrock and Metal Mind. Both companies remastered the album, but Metal Mind went with their signature cheap digipack.
