The Greatest Hits from the greatest band ever.

From: koogles Date: January 2, 2002 at 7:30
A botched attempt at encapsulation. Contains what you'd expect, but throwing on the Star Spangled Banner and a "Kalodner-edit" of a mediocre new track ruins what should have been a fat-free, all-killer, no-filler compilation. Some crucial tracks were omitted in the process: "Can'tcha Say/Still in Love", "It's Easy", "We're Ready" and "Hitch a Ride". The only saving grace is: we didn't have to wait 8 years after "Walk On" for this to emerge!

From: Harryboy Date: March 7, 2002 at 4:08
One of my favourite bands!Great musicians,great guitars,great Boston!Greetings from Bulgaria!

From: jason Date: June 3, 2002 at 18:56
I don't understand this album? Their debut album was a greatest hits. It's the best debut album by any band ever!!

From: TIM Date: June 3, 2002 at 22:50
I never suspected you thought so high of Boston jason. I consider that album to be one of the best for sure. I could never get tired of hearing it.

From: jason Date: June 4, 2002 at 17:32
TIM, That first Boston album is unbelievable. Like I said, it's the best debut I have ever heard. Everything about it blows me away. From volcals & guitars to production & mixing. For a band to go into the studio and have their first album come out like that one is outstanding! They could have stopped after that record and walked away if they wanted too. They didn't have to prove anything after that album.

From: chief7 Date: June 13, 2002 at 20:45
Its ok, I expected much better though.

From: RichieRocker Date: June 30, 2002 at 21:52
Great compliation "Smokin, Rock n Roll band, Amanda, and More than a Feelin" I like these songs the most, out of the whole album, the album is solid, but the tracks i just mentioned are my favorites.

From: kaylee Date: February 27, 2003 at 16:20
i'm only 14, but i think boston is the greatest band ever. tom shultz(i think that's how you spell it) is the best guitar player i've ever heard. i love boston!

From: robert Date: February 28, 2003 at 15:04
No esta nada mal esta recopilacion, y no es para menos, con esos temazos y esos pedazo d musicazos... una buena manera d descubrir uno d los grandes grupos miticos del AOR.

From: Blaster Date: November 6, 2003 at 3:51
great collection if you stop the album after track 14. i can't believe scholz changed rock music forever musically and invented the rockman, hes like music's leonardo davinci

From: rocketron Date: July 20, 2004 at 12:05
I agree tracks 15 and 16 are totally unnecessary.Should have finished with "Hollyann".Otherwise a good compilation.

From: Alejandro Date: November 22, 2004 at 8:33
Fabulosa recopilaciòn de una banda increìble.Todas las canciones que podrìamos llamar clàsicas, estàn aqui.Ideal tanto para el fan màs acèrrimo como para aquel que quiera adentrarse en la historia de Boston.Inconfudible el sonido de Scholz y su emblemàtica guitarra, que le dieron otro enfoque al rock americano en los 70`s. No debe haber muchas bandas capaces de editar tres discos en diez años y hacer un clàsico de cada uno.Absolutamente 10/10. carro_mamrtin2000@yahoo.com.ar

From: Augusto Date: November 22, 2004 at 9:24
Simplemente uno de los mejores grandes exitos que se han editado, tiene todo, aunque para mi seri adificil hacer una compilacion de boston, es como los beatles, como haces para poner los mejores temas, si todos son los mejores temas.Un clasico de todos los tiempos, esencial para cualquier amante de la buena musica. No dejen de deleitarse con el sonido UNICO, para mi, de las guitarras, hasta ahora, no escuche ninguna que suene asi. Recomendado, aunque quedes con ganas de mas...

From: RockHits Date: June 28, 2005 at 1:48
It's funny for a greatest hits album, how they could add possibly 4 of the worst songs they have ever done. Too many songs were missed IMO

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

From: juan carlos Date: June 19, 2007 at 14:28
Boston.. Grande entre los grandes y éste de los mejores recopilatorios. Demás está nombrar sus gloriosos temas. De los nuevos temas pues la semi-balada "Tell Me" no está mal asi como la Bostoniana "Higher Power" típico tema con el sello Tom Scholz. Perdimos al gran Brad Delp pero Tanto él como Boston quedarán por siempre en nuestros corazones, así sea. 9.5/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 24, 2007 at 19:02
Gran compilado de Boston que van desde el Aor mas sutil ("Living for You") hasta el Hard Rock de ("Feeling Satisfied")y bueno ademas del Himno "More than a Feeling" entre otras maravillas musicales que aparecen registradas en este sobrio "Greatest Hits".Solo para amantes de la buena musica.10/10

From: DanDare Date: October 22, 2010 at 10:58
I guess a Greatest Hits album is as good a place as any to find out about a bandf or to hear some of their lesser known stuff, and that can be said for this one. Obviosuly all the well known songs are on here as you'd expect, but I do like 'Higher Power' as well.

From: Doug Date: October 22, 2010 at 13:53
If folks do not know Boston's music they are aliens from a different planet. Even the "lesser known" songs are staples. This band was HUGE in the 70's; one of the greatest singers in rock history (RIP Brad Delp)...their Achilles Heel was they were way too slow in putting out music. They could have ruled the world.

From: happy2849 Date: January 13, 2011 at 14:15
The only release I have by this band, although I am tempted to find their first, due to comments above! These guys were on top of the heap in the 70's and this is a good place to get any idea what they sounded like!

From: 123charpenay Date: March 13, 2013 at 13:12
superb greatest hits from one of the best hard rock band ever.a collection of incredible hits.only killers, of course with a band of this class no fillers.the story of the hard rock is in this record.boston forever.no bonus track in the japan version.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: February 23, 2016 at 16:02
