Classic arena rock perfection. Lead guitar Tom Scholz wrote the entire thing, played nearly every instrument, recorded and produced the album himself in his personal studio (his basement) for $2,000... Awesome

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.
