Corporate America was something of a departure for Tom Scholz, both in composition and recording, as well as in marketing and distribution. I didn't much care for it when first released in 2002, but having dusted it off five years later, I found myself enjoying it far more than I thought possible. Released as a 5-track EP, it might have fared better with the Boston fan base. It is doubtful, though, that anything could have made it a better seller. Time has left the Boston sound behind.

Corporate America was Boston's first release on a minor label, previous albums having been issued by CBS, MCA and Sony. Now defunct, Artemis Records was an independent label specializing in niche marketing of recordings by bands and musicians past their prime. Boston fit the profile perfectly, having sold fewer and fewer albums with each successive release, relying for financial survival on 30 and 40 years old that grew up to Boston's music in the 70's and 80's.

The album that composer, guitarist, engineer, and producer Tom Scholz delivered to Artemis featured the largest collection of musicians yet assembled for a Boston recording. Returning were stalwart vocalist and alter-ego, Brad Delp, and his sound-alike from Walk On, Fran Cosmo, as well as guitarist Gary Phil. New members included Cosmo's son, guitarist Anthony, country/blues songwriter and bassist Kimberly Dahme and history teacher/drummer Jeff Neal. Besides recording their performances, Scholz also recorded several of their compositions, making Corporate America the least Boston-like album in the band's abbreviated discography.

Of the 10 songs, five sound like classic Boston - song structure built on melody and hooks and embellished with carefully crafted guitar and vocal harmonies.

26 years on, Boston release their fifth album. The music still has that spine tingling effect; Scholz has the ability to make the hairs on your neck stand on end. The strongest tracks are the ones Scholz has written himself. The weaker tracks come courtesy of a bizarre Dolly Parton pastiche ("With You", written and performed by Kim Dahme) and the indulgent "Turn It Off". Furthermore, why include "Livin' For You", already on the excellent "Walk On"? Otherwise, this album has the usual mix of soaring guitars, excellent vocals and politically aware lyrics. All fans of this unique band should buy this as tracks 1,8 and 9 are worth the money alone.

This isn't the usual Boston-product we've been used to from the past. Instead it's diverse - meaning it has got the usual Boston trademark tracks on there, but also a few different things.
If you're a Boston-fan from the past you'd probably really like I Had A Good Time, Someone, Didn't Mean To Fall In Love and You Gave Up On Love. The title-track Corporate America is sort-of a modern sounding BOSTON-track with a very polished production. Stare Out Your Window isn't a Scholz-track, but sounds more like Oasis with the addition of pretty strong backing-vocals. Turn It Off is different too and rocks pretty hard. Originally it was much shorter and monotonous, but Scholz opened it up with the addition of a midsection and a soaring guitarsolo. Judge for yourself. Cryin' is also different from the usual Boston and sounds like something else...
I don't like the country-song called With You and thinks it's totally misplaced on this album. However they did record a rockin' version of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen which was downloadable on the record-company's website at some point. It's much much better than With You and should have been included on this instead...

It was really exciting to hear that Boston were about to release new material after so long away, and upon listening to the CD you can still hear certain tracks and say "That's Boston", although it's definitely not all that way.
The main review for this CD rates tracks 1, 8 & 9 - that's no coincidence as original vocalist Brad Delp sings tracks 1 & 8. No doubt Tom Sholtz feels that he "is" Boston and any vocalist with his (no arguments here) fantastic guitar sound and technique will do, but I'm sorry to say that it's the combination of Tom Sholtz guitar work and Brad Delp's amazing vocals that really "IS" Boston and that will never change for any seasoned Boston Fan.
In conclusion, if you're expecting another "Boston", "Don't Look Back" or even "Third Stage" you WILL be disappointed (It's also very interesting to see that a copy of this CD is already for sale second hand on this site and it hasn't even been officially released in the UK yet!). If you have wide musical tastes and can bear to hear other vocalists plying their trade on tracks that were crying out for Brad Delp, give it a try. The CD overall deserves 2 stars, but I have given it 3 stars as at least Brad Delp had the opportunity to remind us of better days. Shame the reality didn't live up to the hype.

Well this about wraps it up for Boston. What a shame that they end on a whimper not a bang. A more MOR and self smug album you have yet to hear, it should have "Only for vegans" on the cover (no offence to vegans intended). The fire finally went out on Boston with this release, everything seems Boston by numbers and tired and bloated. Rock by numbers, nothing to stir the soul or give you goosebumps like their first album. Do yourself a favour and miss this one out and just remember Boston when they were great.
