TJR says

The debut album from the Boston group masterminded by Tom Scholz was assembled and well-produced on a hard-rock meets power-pop formula, pressing all the right buttons for America's record-buying / gig-going public. Ingredients poured into the production of multi-instrumentalist Scholz (electric and acoustic guitars, clavinet, organ, bass guitar) came from: Brad Delp (vocals), Barry Goudreau (guitars), Fran Sheehan (bass guitar) and Sib Hashian (drums). Former drummer Jim Masdea plays on “Rock And Roll Band”. Three singles were lifted from the set; “More Than A Feeling” (#5), “Long Time” (#22) and “Peace Of Mind” (#38). Their glamorous pomp-rock will never find favour with me, but it'd be churlish to deny a job well done on the much celebrated lead single. I hope my cool mates aren't reading.
