Who doesn't remember their first Boston album? (The ONLY Boston album for a long time!) I played mine until it was gritty and scratchy. I loved that the band managed to fuse a progressive-rock sensibility with the infectiousness of pure pop rock. But Brad Delp's vocals really took the music someplace nobody else could go. Think about that line, "I closed my eyes and she slipped awaaaaaaaaaay!" It's burned in your brain, isn't it?
