I can't remember the last time I heard a Boston song without having been the person who decided to play it.

Well. Maybe not listen to that classic rock station so much and you wouldn't think they are overrated??????????

Just saying.

But I think I get it. Why would you want to tune in to some other station anyway? Radio has nothing but sh*t on it. Mostly.

Boston was great, their music is timeless.

I respect their talent, speaking as someone who was a kid at the time when they were first around. I'll admit that I was not too much into their music, but looking back there was reason why the first two albums hold up. When it came to FM Rock in The US that seriously needed to live up to the growing demand for technically sharp sounding music, they fitted the bill very well. Hooks, songs, musicianship that did not extend itself to side long epics that would have turned off radio programmers, and very direct lyrics.

I'm not into their music, but for what it was and where it was aimed for, Boston and Don't Look Back were right for the time and the audience - and looking back on bands that never made it and getting why they did not when Boston were huge, it's a tough thing to achieve. In serious fairness, "More than a Feeling" is a song perfect for Super Vans!

Never been to Boston, so I couldn't say. Hear it's pretty cold this time of year, though.

yes, 74 till 76 where a bit of a slog in terms of rock n roll, despite some good stuff, so although the first Boston album was a giant seller for its time, I don't think it stands the test of time overall.

I mean they only really had the one album.

If you listen solely to classic rock radio, then there are any number of songs/artists that you will burn out on. Given that corporate rock radio of the classic variety has a limited playlist, you'll hear "safe" songs constantly and almost never deeper cuts. Treat yourself and forget all about regular radio- get Sirius and listen to a different station every day, and you'll be surprised how often you hear something you've forgotten about, or hear something new to you that's 40 years old, lol! Personally, I haven't listened to a radio station in over a decade, unless I'm in someone else's car. I constantly rotate CDs from my collection into the truck and listen to something "new" every day. I rarely burn out on stuff anymore...

Radioplay shouldn't affect the quality of a song. The song can't help it if people decide to play it all the time.

The first album is a masterpiece. Ever listen to it with headphones?
