Editors’ Notes

Though it was impossible for them to top the excellence of their eponymous debut, Boston expounded on their signature sound with their sophomore effort, Don’t Look Back. Group mastermind Tom Scholz later complained that Epic forced the band to release the album before it was ready, but that’s just Scholz’s inner perfectionist talking. Don’t Look Back may be a little less muscular and a little less gilded than its predecessor, but “Used to Bad News,” “It’s Easy,” and “Feelin’ Satisfied” can easily stand next to the immortal hits of the first album. Boston’s recipe fell midway between the crafted pop of Electric Light Orchestra and the snarling riffs of Aerosmith, which made them the consummate ‘70s rock outfit. Though nothing here quite tops the solid-gold standard of the debut, there is something of a sequel to “More Than a Feeling” in “Don’t Look Back,” a glorious merger of Scholz’s searing guitar and Brad Delp’s soaring vocals.

Brad Delp Rules

Awesome album. A little short as a follow up to the first one. This was very much an underrated album when it first came out. Listening to it after almost 30 years, it is way better than most of the so called rock music out there today. Brad and Tom really had it going back then. Too bad that Brad left this earth; it was way too soon! "A Man I'll Never Be" is a song I can listen to over and again, 5+.

Still Greatness!

Don't Look Back is great! I'm a Boston fan myself, and after listening to it its a good album. Its worth your $$$.

The arena rock band behind one of the fastest-selling debut albums in history, Boston was essentially the vehicle of guitarist and studio wizard Tom Scholz, born March 10, 1947 in Toledo, Ohio. A rock fan throughout his teen years, he began writing songs while earning a master's degree at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. After graduation, he began work for Polaroid, and set about constructing his own 12-track recording studio in the basement of his home, where Scholz and vocalist Brad Delp...
