That's pretty cool. It's an awesome album.

Exactly right ... you won't get any disagreement from me !! This album was indeed incredibly amazing !!

Also, I should have mentioned too, that it sold more than 17 million copies when it was first released ... that is why it's pegged as the 'Number-one-selling" debut album in U.S. history.

3 shots in a row, right to the gut.

Rock doesn't get much better than that.

I was never a Boston fan, but 55 is way too young to die.

My condolences to his family, friends and fans.

Yes, that's true !! ... Side One is indeed 'mind-blowing'.

I always enjoyed it more than Side Two, although, I liked 'Smokin' which was an "on-fire" type of song ... and 'Let Me Take You Home Tonight' was a GREAT ballad too.

Heck, this album was their BEST one, and ALWAYS will be ... it's not any easier to explain than that !!

Boston's debut album is one of the few albums ever I can listen to without skipping a song. It's awesome. It never gets the credit it deserves for being one of the most definitive album of the 70's. Back then it was right up there with Led Zeppelin IV as a must have. As time went on, VH-1 labeled Boston 'corporte rock' and put them down so they never got the recognition they deserved. I hope they will get it now, though it shouldn't take someone dying to draw attention to its greatness.

I liked Boston too. Their debut album was brilliant, and I also liked Third Stage. Delp's distinctive vocals were a major part of what made the band stand out.

RIP Brad Delp.

I listened to Boston for the first time in a long while this weekend. That album brings back memories.

Sadly, it appears that Delp took his own life.
