Boston – Boston
By Andrew Raub Thursday, 15 Mar 2007

For a band that is often credited with creating the “corporate rock” genre, Boston’s story is hardly friendly to the corporate world. The story is a bit cliche, perhaps, but bad ass regardless. Boston started as one man, Tom Scholz, alone in his basement working a full time job and recording in his slapped together home studio in his spare time. From here the story goes to the studio, where Tom took on the man and in cooperation with the producer, managed to evade having to rerecord in a proper studio. Yes, almost everything heard on this album was recorded by Tom in his basement studio.

On Boston’s first abum, the majesty of these secluded basement sessions shines through. Each and every song on the album, from “More Than A Feeling” to “Let Me Take You Home Tonight”, hits a high degree of emotion, excitement, and pure rock and roll ecstasy. The songs range from topics such as old, meaningful songs to ambitious rock and roll lifestyle to love and youth and the hardships of life. Pretty much anything you could ask for is here.

There are very few albums in which every song can be heard on the radio today. Off hand, the only ones that I can think of are Boston and Led Zeppelin IV. These albums provide a stark contrast, but both represent quite well the music of the era. One is the end of an era, one is the beginning. It’s all rock and roll.

The Boston album is the story of one ambitious man who put almost everything he had on the line. Had Tom Sholz been unsuccessful, the world would be missing a true modern masterpiece.

There’s so much I could say about this album, but it’s hard to describe the closest thing to a perfect album that I know of. There is not one thing I can complain about this album. I implore you, go get this record. The Tom Sholz remastered version is worth way more than the sticker price will lead you to believe.
