RTZ represent what I like to call the Frankenstein’s Monster school of rock. Under other name (Boston), were highly successful late-’70s band brought to life by mad scientist Tom Scholz of Boston. This is long gone, but the group live on in new incarnation. Do they miss their creator? Return to Zero, sounds exactly like their predecessor, but that only proves, first, what a faceless front man the band had in guitarist and technocrat Scholz, and, second, how soulless singer Brad Delp’s voice was on even Boston’s most indelible tunes. RTZ’s monkey-with-a-typewriter soundalike perfection makes one wonder how Scholz could ever have been mistaken for a genius. D
