If you’re a Boston fan, you already know they released a new album, Live, Life, & Hope, on December third. What I’ve always loved most is the structure of most Boston music, which includes the trademark guitar sound, and soaring vocals. More than that, however, is the way Tom Scholz blends it all in a symphonic effect. His songs are structured, using rock ‘n roll elements, the way a conductor might arrange music for an orchestra. That’s the common thread through the best of Boston’s albums, and it’s here in abundance.
Mike Mettler’s interview with Scholz, posted by SoundBard.com, gives remarkable insight into Scholz, his understanding of the “construction” of sound, and the influences that have made Boston a one-of-a-kind. Definitely worth a look.
