The album sold over four million copies in the first month of its release, and was certified 7x platinum by the RIAA in the US. This album also marked the beginning of the band's legal fight with its record label, Epic.
Guitarist, producer and primary songwriter Tom Scholz claimed that Epic executives pushed him and the band into releasing the album before they felt it was ready. He also said that the album "was ridiculously short.
It needed another song". Their next album, Third Stagewas not released for another eight years, by which time the band and record label had parted ways and were fighting a courtroom battle that Boston ultimately won. The album was listed erroneously as Arrival in the cassette inserts of some other CBS releases at the time promoting albums available from the record company and its associated labels. Billboard described the album as "an equally superior effort [to their debut album ] that further refines this group's ability to play hard rock underlined by a sweet, melodic base".
In Feelin Satisfied - Boston - Dont Look Back , Scholz cited it as his favorite song on any of Boston's first three albums, but wished that it were longer. Grein described the transition from "The Journey" to "It's Easy" as "appropriately jarring" due to the latter song's fast boogie guitar introduction.
It begins with a short, slow introduction before a surprising change of pace to the fast, harder sound that persists throughout the rest of the song, in much the same way as "Something About You" from the debut.
Emerson described "Used to Bad News" as "a charming, rather Beatles-like song". The song had an earlier genesis than other songs on the album, as it was originally one of the demos Scholz worked on before getting a record contract.
Don't Look Back was among the first commercially produced Feelin Satisfied - Boston - Dont Look Back discs when the Feelin Satisfied - Boston - Dont Look Back was introduced inbut because of ongoing legal issues between Scholz and CBS Recordsthe title was pulled after a small production run and did not reappear on CD until three years later.
Inserts for the original CD pressings contained the "spaceship blueprints" from the original album dust jacket; those illustrations were not included in the reissue. This album and the group's first album were remastered and re-released on June 13, The reissues were digitally remastered personally by Scholz after he heard indirectly that the remastering project was to be handled by Sony's team, which he felt was unacceptable.
He took it on himself after negotiations Feelin Satisfied - Boston - Dont Look Back Legacy Recordingssaying, "I've always wanted to make those albums sound good on CD, and the chance arrived". A small number of the Sony-remastered versions briefly went on sale in Canada on April 4, before being removed from sale.
Those discs also included a live version of "Shattered Images" mistitled "Help Me" on the packagingan unreleased Boston original recorded at a concert in Philadelphia. Per liner notes .
