"In 1980,Barry Goudreau of Boston decided to make a solo album.He brought most of Boston with him for his self titled album.Brad Delp handles the vocals and Sib also from Boston plays the drums, I'm not sure on who the rest of the band is, I have a cassette so it doesn't say anywhere.Goudreau's solo album, should have been Boston's third album like previous reviewers have stated.This album has the Boston sound!If you like 1976's Boston and it's 1978 follow up Don't Look Back you will like Barry Goudreau!A few highlights off the album include: Hard Luck, NOthin' to Lose, Dreams, and Sailin' Away. Possibly the best album nobody remembers or has heard of."
An interesting artifact for lovers of the band Boston.

"Tired of waiting around for Tom Scholz to finish the latest Boston album, most of the band got together and recorded this above average album. There are a couple of really great tunes here- "Dreams" (the best Boston song that Boston never recorded) is worth the price of the album alone, while "Life is What We Make It" & "Sailin' Away" would cover shipping & handling. All-in-all, this is better than Boston's Walk On.What's most interesting is the addition of Fran Cosmo to the line up. The story goes that he was added because the real Fran from Boston didn't want to participate. Fran Cosmo of course stayed with Barry after this project for Orion the Hunter ("So You Ran"), while Brad Delp returned to Boston for Third Stage. Brad then rejoined Barry (his brother-in-law) to form RTZ, while Fran then joined Boston as one of the many blended voices attempting to recreate Brad's voice for Boston's Walk On. Brad then recorded new songs for Boston's Greatest Hits package, while still singing for RTZ. The revolving singers is a very interesting story."
Great Boston sound, but without Tom.

"This album features band members from the group Boston, and is very similar in sound. If you like power chords and rock and roll, this album is a must have."
