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.

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".
InScholz 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.

He took it on himself after negotiations with 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.
