From: freddy de keyze Date: June 11, 2003 at 15:06
With all respect, this is one of the biggest crap records of the last ten years ! In fact, this is no longer Boston, it's a different band. Gone is the traditional, classic Boston sound and now we get a kind of poppy, weird record, not worth listening to ! Boston was a great band. Amen !

From: Reno Date: June 11, 2003 at 15:22
I actually agree with Freddy on this. The nice flowing vocals of albums past are gone and replaced with that digital pitch shifting thing that Cher and many other artists have been experimenting with. The songwriting is lacking and the wall of guitar has crumbled. Piss poor effort to say the least. Stick with the earlier Boston

From: Gar Date: June 11, 2003 at 20:05
True, it IS a far cry from classic BOSTON. But really this isn't all that bad of an album. Its a little experimental in places, but not overly so. There's no way the band could ever top their early releases and this one doesn't come close. However, CORPORATE AMERICA winds up being a decent rock album- nothing more.

From: Great Dane Date: June 12, 2003 at 0:04
Avoid...........If youre expecting a Boston release, like earlier GOOD releases, you will be sooo dissapointed.

From: Fog-hat Date: June 23, 2003 at 6:31
Sold this stinker within two weeks after I bought it. Won't make the same mistake again, bye bye Boston, FOREVER!!!!!!!!

From: ThunderDan Date: June 23, 2003 at 15:47
I like this album because it is different than anything they've put out. A few songs have the Boston sound, although I don't like the programmed drums (nice try, Tom). It is anything BUT a classic Boston release. The songs that Anthony Cosmo wrote aren't bad at all. 'With You', although not a bad song, certainly doesn't fit on the album. I also don't understand of adding a live version of a song that fans already have when we could've gotten a new song instead. I don't get it.

From: AORLover Date: November 16, 2003 at 14:08
Ohoh, Boston quo Vadis ? That's no longer the old Boston we all liked so much - programmed drums and some songs are nearly pure pop.

From: sbg911 Date: February 2, 2004 at 18:04
Listened to this several times but its simply awful. Sounds lost, "I Had A Good Time" is the closest to trad Boston, but still misses. "Without You" sounds like a demo of some Shania ballad and has the most out-of-place solo ever heard! "Cryin'" is the best song Oasis never wrote. It just disintegrates all over - esp of you've spent extra for the bonus instrumental track that just goes on...and on. Okay, Tom, you've excorcised your plackard-waving demons...can we get the ol' Boston back now?

From: Great Dane Date: February 2, 2004 at 18:34
The message, the production, the music and just about everything on this cd suxx. Its an awful release.

From: Reno Date: February 4, 2004 at 7:37
Agreed Mr Dane!!! They got "Corporate" correct though.

From: michael,belfast Date: May 17, 2004 at 17:21
this album is brilliant with only "turn it off" letting it down. brad &fran on one album is a dream. kimberlys songs brill too. my only minus points are for the album length and live filler, however class version of livin for you. look foreward for the next cd but could be years away.

From: AORmaniac Date: June 29, 2004 at 23:14
I totally disagree with you. Do not ask from a band to play the same things all the times cause then the fans get so easily bored. This is a very good CD from Boston that they wanted to follow their age and no to stuck in their excellent past. Just listen to "I Had a Good Time", "Corporate America", "Someone", "Cryin'", "You Gave Up On Love" and you will understand how good this album is. Of course they can do it better but this one is a good album. Cheers...

From: AOR freaky Date: June 30, 2004 at 5:49
Let's be serieus guys ! This is a very bad, very poppy CD ! It has nothing to do with the real Boston. They should have changed their name for this release.

From: TIM (2) Date: July 9, 2004 at 5:41
I wish I had this with the nose-diving airplane on the cover, as it's a far more appropriate cover than the one I have, given what the material sounds like... Starts off ok, despite the botched production, but really tails off terribly towards the end and makes a tiresome listen from start to finish. 4/10.

From: Scott Date: July 29, 2004 at 13:12
Seems that 'ol Tom has become a crusader for more than rock-n-roll and has taken on the roll of a new age, environmentalist preacher. Such phrases as "Shoot With Cameras, Not With Guns" and "Vegetarians Rock!" adorn the inside of the cover. Vegetarians rock? Uh, OK, whatever. There are even web sites listed for PETA and other animal rights groups. So, I don't suppose Boston will be doing a tour with Ted Nugent any time in the near future. Still, not a bad album, although not their best.

From: Jesse Date: August 8, 2004 at 14:07
This is NOT even close to being a Boston release. The only track I actually like off this album is "Someone" and the live version of "Livin' For You" is alright. This is an insult to the name Boston...I'm sorry, but no self respecting fan of Boston could appreciate this. This is selling out to the extent of Metallica. Boston has been a hard rock/arena rock type of band from the beginning and this is nothing but cheesy pop music. The word "corporate" says enough about this record. The emphasis is

WE WANT THE REAL BOSTON BACK!

From: Wotty Date: August 15, 2004 at 12:39
As a long standing fan of this band,and I use the term band loosely after hearing this drivel.The tears only dried up when they gave us the live version of Livin For You.I hope Tom sorts his trouble out in the States and gives us our Boston back.

From: AOR freaky Date: August 15, 2004 at 13:38
Can't say it any better than you, Wotty ! Let's hope a great band will return with a great record, not with this piece of crap !

From: dckiss Date: August 15, 2004 at 14:24
I actually like this album once I get past the fact that it is NOT a Boston album I don't think that its a classic by any means but I really like Corporate America and it made a singles collection I put together for myself. The big mistake here is that Tom Scholtz called it Boston. By doing this he lost a lot of fans. It should have been called the Tom Scholtz Project and people might have liked it better. It's quite a shock when you first put it in expecting to hear Boston, because it isn't.

From: Gernie Date: August 18, 2004 at 14:18
Once a fan, allways a fan!

From: Wotty Date: August 18, 2004 at 14:24
Gernie,what a high pain threshold you must have....

From: scorpion_14414 Date: September 3, 2004 at 17:57
I just got a copy a few days ago as it was retailing for 22 over here in Ireland had to wait until i got a cheaper copy I am so glad i did not pay 22 for it as most of the songs are crap and it sounds as if it was recorded in a baked bean tin bloody awful what has happened to this once great band they need a kick up the backside hope the next cd is better altough it could not be much worse than this garbage

From: Wotty Date: September 4, 2004 at 14:28
As much as I love Boston,this was a disappointment of ROCK IT type proportions.OOPs it seems I did it again....

From: Rockhits Date: November 18, 2004 at 5:01
10 Tracks 3 Good tracks 3/10 Girls do NOT belong in Boston

From: don't look back Date: December 3, 2004 at 12:54
'I had..''Corporate..'e'You gave up..'valgono da sole il prezzo del cd. I cari vecchi Boston sono tutti qua...e nella cover! Manca un po' di Brad Delp e quel feeling anni 70 quando le chitarre imperavano,ma c' molta Kimberley Dahme che prima mancava.Provate a riordinare la track list:3-1-9-8-6-7-2-5-4.Questo un 10/10 album,nonostante tutto.'Don't give up so easily'.

From: Kip Date: January 20, 2005 at 20:03
Wow I'm surprised at all the negitivity here. Sure, it isn't classic Boston, but it's still a good album. I Had A Good Time is perfect, and the title track rocks and has touches of Foreplay/Long Time in it. This isn't a masterpiece, but I enjoy it. 6.5/10

From: RockHits Date: June 28, 2005 at 1:53
Some bands get better with time (Asia for one) Others put out the same stuff over and over (Aerosmith anyone) And yet some others just get old and really uncool after a while Guess which one of these 3 sentences are true for Craporate America

From: Missing the 70's Date: November 19, 2005 at 0:14
This isn't completely the same boston that they once were. Still some very good songs.

From: Leafsfan97 Date: March 10, 2007 at 12:03
We lost the greatest vocalist in Rock and Roll yesterday. God Speed Brad RIP

From: Carlos A. Date: October 25, 2008 at 16:27
This is a brilliant Album, lot of rock n roll guitars and the classic high quality arrangements, maybe some alternative tunes and different work voices but still sound Boston.

From: pibe Date: November 5, 2012 at 17:33
es distinto pero bueno

From: 123charpenay Date: January 18, 2013 at 10:36
i discover boston in 1978 when i stay three weeks in south carolina (greenville).i was invited by my penfriend.the two brothers of dawn, listen boston all day long.so i was under the charm of this fantastic band and i become a real boston s hard fan.in 2002 when this cd was out i read the killer comments in rock time (french magazine).they says that this record is a shame an absolute zero ect ect.like the comments on the site.eleven years later i had the occasion to buy this record in japan import (a real raritie) at a very high price.i take the risk cause in my mind i think that s it impossible that boston could make a bad album.right! i m not disapointed this record is grandiose.track 3 corporate america is one of the best and smart song never writen by a hard rock band.ok there is three singers (all excellent) ok the typical boston trade mark are not present on tracks 4.6.7.i hate "crying" track 7.erase this song listen to the rest and take pleasure.i love this record!!!!!!!!!!!!
