An standard hard rock album. Very 70s-ish.

Boston's debut album is never boring, and features some classic rock essentials like "More Than a Feeling" and "Foreplay/Long Time"

I can almost hear Thomas the Vance announcing Boston on the Friday Rock Show and to be honest, back then, I was more interested in hearing Led Zep, Rush and new metal bands like Diamond Head and Samson. What a great collection of stonking rock tracks this album is! Just picked it up on a brand new vinyl re-issue. I have realised what I have missed over all those years, however it was worth waiting for!

Excellent album; too bad their albums all sound the same. I would expect more from Tom.

Pretty solid album. More than a Feeling is the obvious standout.

More than a feeling is fine but way to poppy. I enjoy Piece of Mind and definitely Foreplay/Long Time! All the songs that come after these 3 top songs all have clear elements taken from these top 3. I don't know whether that are references or just Boston's style but it makes it less attracting to listen to the album as a whole

I finally got around to checking out this classic & I'm so glad I did with some great axe work going here ! . I've always loved 'More Than A Feeling' and its clearly the stand out track

There's a contemporary group clearly influenced a huge deal by this album , to the point its scary .... I'm looking at you The Darkness ! . Holy cow they are so similar

An album that anyone who has ever listened to classic rock will know top to bottom. All eight tracks. It's an incredible debut album.

From MetaKoopa99 11/08/2017 01:38
Probably the greatest debut album of all time. Every single song on this album is still a hit on classic rock radio. Out of a sea of greats, my favorite has to be Foreplay/Long Time. The subtlety of having the first two instrumental guitar strum interludes being acoustic and the final one being electric is perfect.
