Boston - Third Stage download album


Third Stage is the third studio album by American hard rock band Boston, released on September 23, 1986 on MCA Records. Scholz and Brad Delp, the group's vocalist, were the only individuals that remained in the group from its original line-up. In terms of lyrics, the release invokes the themes of aging and working through differing 'stages' in one's life.

Boston - third stage album.

Manufactured in West Germany for MCA Records Inc. Track 2 has an index 2 at 0:59 to locate 'Ignition' and index 3 at 2:36 to locate 'Third Stage Separation'. Track 9 has an index 2 at 2:21 to locate 'Still in love' and index 3 at 3:27 to locate 'Can'tcha say (conclusion)'. The tracklisting on the back-cover is faulty: Track 9 on disc is split into two tracks on cover.

Album · 1986 · 10 Songs. The Launch: I. Countdown, II. Ignition, III. Third Stage Separation.

Album Name Third Stage. Data de aparición 1986.

After rushing their second album Don't Look Back, Boston took eight years to complete the album Third Stage. The long delay is even more surprising considering that their sound didn't change at all; even though only Tom Scholz and vocalist Brad Delp remained from the original lineup, they were the ones responsible for Boston's sound. As such, it is difficult to avoid comparisons with their landmark debut. However, the songs are not as strong as those on their debut, and the album is marred by the presence of instrumental fillers and an attempt to cling to a theme of "journey through life's third stage. Thus, rather than focusing on universal topics such as the exuberance and uncertainties associated with youth, the mature lyrics are lost on most of their young rock audience.

Boston Fan (June 23, 2004). Excellent comeback album for Boston, few comebacks sound this good. It was as if they never stopped playing. I find it extremely hard to compare another comeback album of any band to the quality of this one. Boston didnt.
