After inventing the Polaroid Land Camera, guitarist Tom Scholz turned his knack for gadgetry into a second career when his multi-layered basement recordings became Boston's mega-selling debut. Among the top-selling records of all time, its first single, "More Than a Feeling," went Top Five in 1976. What at first sounded like a breath of fresh air on the stale mid-'70s airwaves soon turned stale due to incessant radio play; the song became lodged in the collective consciousness. As was the fashion of the day, "More Than a Feeling" begins as a gentle MOR song but bursts wide open when the sound of pounding drums meets the power chords of the main riff. Not exactly a power ballad, the song does display an extreme shift in dynamics throughout. From its breezy opening and the aforementioned power chords to the crunchy yet sugary chorus and brief bridge which makes way for Scholz's epic, noodle-style soloing, the formula was often repeated in the late '70s by lesser bands. Thus, "More Than a Feeling" is often pointed to as an example of everything that was wrong with the decade's music and is generally reviled by critics of '70s corporate rock.
