- Black Sheep Hit: "Amanda". It's not a million miles away from their usual sound, but compared to songs like "More Than A Feeling", "Peace of Mind" and "Don't Look Back", the difference is pretty jarring.
- Executive Meddling: Epic Records and Scholz butted heads on numerous occasions.
- Sequel Gap: Boston is notorious for long gaps between album releases. Third Stage, Walk On, and Corporate America each took eight years to produce; Tom Scholz even got into legal trouble with their label for taking so long.
