Walk On (1994)


Details Lead Performance: Boston

Dork-rock perfectionist Tom Scholz, leader and mastermind of Boston, has spent the last seven years trying to figure out how to stretch out one decade's tinker-toy guitar sound and un-campy Queen rip-off (''More Than a Feeling'') into another decade's worth of mortgage payments. And he's succeeded. Walk On is much more than a feeling — it's pure product! Three new singers re-create original vocalist Brad Delp's castrati style, and four pages of an accompanying booklet urge fans against domestic violence, buying fur, and hunting — but nothing about wasting trees. Brought to you by the conglomerate that successfully regurgitated Meat Loaf, it goes down like Tuna Helper. C+
