But the only thing changing is the opinion of the person. Perhaps "fault" was a poor choice or wording, as it seems to place blame. But my point is you can't blame something's quality for changing if that thing is always the same. If something's the same all the time, it can't change. You said it yourself: you get tired.

I don't think that anyone is arguing against that point because it's pretty obvious.

That'snot the way it came across, since they were still trying to argue with me over the same point I've been making: that point.

And they're all pretty much making the same point too, if you'd look closely.

... I guess so, Frownland. I'm so used to disagreements on line. Still, it's a common belief and I rarely find anyone who sees it may way on this subject.

I've always liked Boston. I was burnt out on them for some time though thanks to the local classic rock stations putting them on heavy rotation, then it got to where we only had one classic rock station here in Houston and I just stopped listening to the radio period and I can enjoy a lot of those bands again. Tom Scholz is one hell of a musician and it always blew me away considering how little time he had been playing guitar at the time the first Boston album was recorded.

My take on the band is that Scholz has a unique tone, all his own, and I'll give him props for that, but over all it's about an inch deep to me. A little goes a helluva long way.

I heard Boston for the first time in ages here being played on a classic rock station and guess what it was "More Than a Feeling" I was never a huge fan of that song but I pretty much enjoyed listening to it again.

The very first vinyl I ever purchased for myself was "Don't Look Back". I was 13, and I had been on a steady diet of Led Zeppelin, Bob Seger, and War from what my Dad had been listening to around that time, so that album was more personal to me back then. Now days, not so much, but as far as Tom's playing, the outro solo on "Hitch A Ride" off of their debut is one of the most beautiful pieces of guitar work I've heard from him and it still holds a special place in my heart.
