4.0 out of 5 stars Trademark Boston, 19 Dec. 2013
This review is from: Life, Love & Hope (Audio CD)
I'm quite surprised at the poor reviews of this album. Yes, it's not a classic and for me the inclusion of three previously released tracks is a bit cheap, but I buy a Boston album for that trademark sound that only Tom Scholz can produce. If Boston had done an unplugged album or gone in a different direction I can only imagine the outcry. The opening track Heaven on Earth is everything you would expect if you love Boston and hits the mark big time. The rest of the album is more of the same culminating in the final track The Way You Look Tonight which for some will come across as soppy but it leaves you wanting more and is a real grower. In fact I would say the whole album grows the more you listen to it and I personally can't keep it off the player. My advice, go on a 45 minute car journey and turn up the volume and remember with Boston you get what you pay for.

The result... Corporate America. That album had a female country singer and songs that sound closer to Oasis and Smashing Pumpkins than classic rock. No amount of 'turning it up' can make up for this stinker. In fact, is there a voulme lower than mute?
