An 'Out of this world' production!- TOP CLASS!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Boston (Audio CD)
All those out there who own a copy of this album, will agree with me, I'm sure, that this has to be one of the best produced, if not THE BEST PRODUCED rock album, ever made! There isn't a single weak song on the disc, and the team of Delp/Scholz/Goudreau/Sheehan/Hashian, work extremely well together, and Tom Scholz has really proved himself, as a more than able producer(well, with his background as a Mechanical Engineering graduate, etc, etc, it's hardly surprising!) The tracks all tend to veer somewhere between the realms of progression and hard rock, but the idea of mixing the two is welcome in my book. 'More than a feeling' is a great driving song(it goes well with other favourites of mine like 'Lido Shuffle' by Boz Scaggs, and 'Babe', 'Lady' and 'Borrowed Time' by Styx), so congratulations, Boston, on making a
real 'uplifter'; good for moments of dullness. As for the others- they all offer something special- you never quite know what is going to come next, whether it be a sudden key change, a personable message, or a virtuoso twin lead guitar
riff from Messrs Scholz and Goudreau(Scholz is an entertaining keyboard player, too). The whole thing is a classic rock masterpiece- and please'LISTEN TO THE RECORD!'
