  • A compilation of greatest hits should be just that: greatest hits. Having stated that, now I’ll contradict myself by thanking Boston for including “Higher Power” (both tracks)and an energized, well vibed “Star Spangled Banner/4th of July Reprise” on this CD. Both cuts are soothing nirvana for those of us who appreciate clean, powerful guitar rifts.BOSTON – GREATEST HITS contains several of the band’s most memorable hits, including “More Than A Feeling,” “Don’t Look Back,” “Amanda,” and several others. I’ll respectfully disagree with another reviewer who lamented the inclusion of “Rock & Roll Band” on this album; to the contrary, this is one of the band’s signature songs in terms of style, instrumentation, and energy. What I don’t get is the inclusion of tracks that fall remarkably short when compared to the rest of the music on the CD–singles like “A Man I’ll Never Be” and “Tell Me,” the very first song. Overall, BOSTON – GREATEST HITS will placate and please the band’s legions of fans, but this must be said: if you really want to listen to Boston’s “greatest hits,” look no farther than the group’s debut album, aptly titled “Boston.”
