Harry Potter: The Exhibition - Museum of Science, Boston - Through February 21, 2010

First, it was delivered to us in written form. Then, the dream grew closer to our human reality in film. And now, at the dawn of the new decade, we get to physically climb inside the world of Harry Potter. See it now at the Museum of Science, Boston. And, in a few months, take the experience for a faster, more complete spin at Universal Orlando's "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter." Can you even remember a world before the wand ? !

  • I love the sense of movement in this poster, "The Eight", about 1930 Cyril E. Power (English, 1872-1951). Catch the entire exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in the Torf Gallery now through June 1, 2008.

  • So funny! Getting one of these for my French Bulldog obsessed friends next week.

I particularly like this one from the Boston bike manufacturer Seven Cycles. It's titanium which makes it ridiculously light and strong. The downside? It'll cost you a pretty penny. This is what some of my peers would call "Stealh Wealth." The average hipster would not be able to distinguish this apart from a Republic or BikesDirect fixie but those in the know will be turning their heads and giving you thumbs up when you roll by.

It's said that consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, and if that's true, Robert Pollard must have a mind as big as all outdoors. For an artist whose melodic style is as instantly recognizable as Pollard's, there's been a remarkably wide swing in the level of quality in his post-Guided by Voices projects, and the third album from Boston Spaceships -- Pollard's ongoing collaboration with Chris Slusarenko and John Moen -- unfortunately isn't as strong or engaging as their first two efforts. Zero to 99 is certainly a lot livelier than most of Pollard's solo work, featuring some rollicking post-glam melodies powered by a handful of musicians who aren't afraid to draw sweat and make with the strut. Pollard and his friends were also able to attract some A-list guest stars for these sessions, including Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey from R.E.M., as well as power pop guitar hero Tommy Keene and Sam Coomes of Quasi. And Pollard's own performance can't be faulted; he's singing as well as ever and sounds as engaged as anyone on board. But while Zero to 99 has more impressive credentials than the previous Boston Spaceships' discs, the results don't feel much different from where they've gone before, and this album suffers from the same bugaboo that curses so much of Robert Pollard's music -- the impact of a few really good songs has been seriously diluted by a whole bunch that are ultimately nothing special. On Brown Submarine and Planets Are Blasted, Boston Spaceships stood above much of Pollard's recent work because he stuck to top-shelf material with worthy collaborators backing him up. The musicians are as good as ever, but Pollard once again can't seem to tell his star players from his B team, and that's why Zero to 99 disappoints, despite all its virtues. ~ Mark Deming, All Music Guide « less… more »

They've been a long time coming, but live recordings -- "authorized bootlegs" -- have found their niche in the CD market. Instead of listening to chopped-up concerts from the 1972 tour, Grateful Dead and New Riders of the Purple Sage (NRPS) fans can listen to the whole show. Boston Music Hall, December 5, 1972 is the second NRPS release plucked out of the vault by Kufala, and qualifies as another rocking show from the band's classic years. The gig gets a jaunty kickoff with "Truck Drivin' Man," a good-time ode to life on the road, and then delves into the hippy-dippy "Watcha Gonna Do." One of the joys of hearing NRPS live during this period is the dual powerhouse of David Nelson's guitar and Buddy Cage's pedal steel. Even on a throwaway like "Hello Mary Lou," Nelson's country-flavored fretwork sounds as though it would match Clarence White note for note, while Cage's wacky no-holds-barred approach guarantees that something interesting will happen each time he cuts loose. There are fine versions of "Portland Woman" and "Glendale Train" from the band's own catalog, and plenty of fine, and, occasionally, unusual covers like "Down in the Boondocks," "Long Black Veil," and "She's No Angel." John Dawson's a fine vocalist, and overall, NRPS handle vocals with much more aplomb than the Dead. In a way, NRPS' combination of country and rock realized the potential of the new genre in a way that the Flying Burrito Brothers only hinted at. While it goes without saying, fans will want to pick up a copy of Boston Music Hall. ~ Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr., All Music Guide « less… more »

Great live albums accomplish two things: They show how an artist sounds in real life (or something close to it) and they make you wish that you were there the night they recorded this gig. By this measure, Live on St. Patrick's Day From Boston, MA is one of the best of the breed. You may have to go back to Live at Leeds to catch this kind of stage energy. Dropkick Murphys, working-class heroes in blue-collar Boston, crash through their set with hair-raising exuberance. Their sound, a muscular collision of punk and traditional Irish elements, connects directly with the crowd, whose presence is never lost in the mix; throughout the set the band welcomes relatives in the balcony, runs footage of old Boston Bruins hockey games as a video backdrop, opens the stage to a bunch of step-dancers, brings a guy up from the audience to propose to his girl as the crowd roars its approval (the girl, no fool, says yes), and invites any woman in the crowd to join them as their massive, beer-swilling piper, Spicy McHaggis, plays a jig. ("His pipes are gigantic, and so is his schlong," Al Barr yells as the band thunders merrily.) From the opening moments, a stirring skirl provided by the Boston Police Gaelic Column Pipes & Drums, to a final chant of "Let's go, Murphys!" performed in the wreckage that follows the finale, Live on St. Patrick's Day From Boston, MA is ultimately a raucous, brawling, and sentimental testament of love between a band and their perfectly matched audience. ~ Robert L.

If you are a collector of classic rock records, then no doubt you already have these, but if you are only starting to get the bug, who could ask for more than the first two records by Boston -- both of which soared to the top of the charts and remained there like an albatross for weeks on end -- in the case of the first one, it remained in the Top Ten for nearly a year. For those who lived through it the first time, this package is likely to accomplish one of two things: either having you remembering your high school years and reveling in their hedonism and camaraderie, or send you screaming into the abyss with your hands over your ears wishing you could blot out not only the sound but the nightmarish memories of clothing styles back in the day. Bill and Ted never counted Boston's first two recordings into either of their Excellent Adventures. ~ Thom Jurek, All Music Guide « less… more »

For many years, there were only the official Boston albums in the group's catalog. Unlike many bands, they held out recycling their work in a series of budget-line collections, granting only a two-fer release of their first two albums in 1983. Things changed once Greatest Hits was released in 1997, since its release guaranteed the eventual appearance of records like Sony Music Special Products' Rock and Roll Band, a budget-line compilation of highlights from the first two albums. Since it's a budget-line collection, it does not contain all of the hits. In fact, it has only one big hit in "More Than a Feeling," which may well satisfy the needs of most casual fans. The remainder of the disc features one minor hit from Don't Look Back ("A Man I'll Never Be"), plus four tracks apiece from the first two albums. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide « less… more »

The follow-up to Boston's mega-hit first album, Boston, Don't Look Back took two long years to complete, and it's hard to figure out why because it's almost exactly the same as their debut. The guitars still sound like they are being fed through computers and stacked into great walls of sound by robots, lead singer Brad Delp still sounds like he is ripping his throat out, and the harmony vocals still sound like a choir of androids warbling angelically. Most importantly, the songs are overflowing with hooks, there are plenty of riffs to air guitar to, and the songs stick in your head like dirt on a dog. The main difference lies in the semi-melancholy tone of the record. Boston was a nonstop party of a record but one look at the song titles lets you know that Don't Look Back is a little different: "A Man I'll Never Be," "Used to Bad News," "Don't Be Afraid." These songs reveal a reflective side that was nowhere to be found on Boston. Not to say the record doesn't rock because it does mightily. "Don't Look Back" has a killer riff that's very similar to the timeless riff in "More Than a Feeling," "Party" is a storming rocker much like "Smokin'" and "It's Easy" is mellow 70's AOR at its absolute best. Don't Look Back is basically Boston, Pt. 2, but don't let that put you off because even though the band was treading water they were treading it like Esther Williams. This record is better than 96.7% of the AOR records released in the 1970s, combine it with Boston and you are looking at two tickets to AOR paradise. ~ Tim Sendra, All Music Guide « less… more »

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 songwriter/guitarist 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. Third Stage has some strong moments, especially the number one hit "Amanda" where the band blends acoustic and electric guitars to complement the layered vocals. 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. Given the time between albums and the changes in the pop landscape, it was a little disappointing to find Boston stuck in the same sound. The album still sounds great when it works on all cylinders ("We're Ready," "Cool the Engines"), but the album is not filled with enough satisfying moments. This may be nostalgic pop rock of the '80s, but casual listeners should start with their debut. ~ Vik Iyengar, All Music Guide « less… more »

Boston is one of the best-selling albums of all time, and deservedly so. Because of the rise of disco and punk, FM rock radio seemed all but dead until the rise of acts like Boston, Tom Petty, and Bruce Springsteen. Nearly every song on Boston's debut album could still be heard on classic rock radio decades later due to the strong vocals of Brad Delp and unique guitar sound of Tom Scholz. Tom Scholz, who wrote most of the songs, was a studio wizard and used self-designed equipment such as 12-track recording devices to come up with an anthemic "arena rock" sound before the term was even coined. The sound was hard rock, but the layered melodies and harmonics reveal the work of a master craftsman. While much has been written about the sound of the album, the lyrics are often overlooked. There are songs about their rise from a bar band ("Rock and Roll Band") as well as fond remembrances of summers gone by ("More Than a Feeling"). Boston is essential for any fan of classic rock, and the album marks the re-emergence of the genre in the 1970s. ~ Vik Iyengar, All Music Guide « less… more »

Since Tom Scholz is such a slow worker, there were only four Boston albums between the group's 1976 debut and this Greatest Hits collection in 1997. That may mean that there isn't much music to compile, as the reliance on their biggest-selling album, Boston, suggests, but that doesn't matter for most casual fans, since Greatest Hits gathers all of their best songs, from "More Than a Feeling" to "Amanda," on one compact disc. For the collector, the record isn't quite as appealing, even if it contains three new songs as bait. These three songs simply don't deliver the melodic punch or guitar crunch that distinguishes the group's best work. It's nice to hear original vocalist Brad Delp on "Higher Power," but "Tell Me" is slight, and an instrumental version of "The Star Spangled Banner" is nearly an insult. So, for the devoted, Greatest Hits is a mixed bag, but for less dedicated listeners, it may be all the Boston they need.
