Always meant to buy this album back in the day and now I have, boy am I glad I did, great guitar work from Mr Goudreau, Killer hooks and riffs and classy concise solos with great harmony singing. Boston without all the technical tweaking and `gilding the lily'. If you liked the first two Boston Albums, especially the shorter `rockier' tracks ie; `Rock & Roll Band,`Smokin, `Something about you', Its easy', `Party', etc, then you will love this. Rock on Barry Goudreau!!

Tired of waiting for Tom Scholz to release material for Boston's third album, guitarist Barry Goudreau borrowed vocalist Brad Delp and drummer Sid Hashian to record this solo project, co-produced by John Boylan (an assistant on Boston's two previous projects). The album was released by Boston's parent company, CBS, and marketed as "Almost Boston," a move that convinced Scholz that Goudreau and his record company were conspiring to take Boston away from him. Scholz and Goudreau would not work together for nearly three decades. This album also features the songwriting and vocals of Fran Cosmo, who in the 90's contributed to Boston's fourth and fifth releases, Walk On and Corporate America.

Where Boston's first two albums still sound fresh 30 years later, this album sounds like you might expect something that was written, recorded and produced in six months and shows quite clearly that Scholz' compositional skills and methodical perfectionism in the studio are the key ingredients to the Boston sound. Only one track here sounds remotely like Boston, Goudreau and Delp's "Dreams," the only song that will resurface on tour in the pair's future RTZ project and which saves this recording from a zero rating. Check out the two RTZ recordings for a much better taste of Goudreau.
