I'm 60 years old and have loved TOTO since hearing "Hold the Line" in 1978.
Having never seen the band LIVE, I bought Live in Amsterdam and Falling in Between
and now this masterpiece. This one is the best because it's NEW and fabulous at the same time.
Bobby Kimball was great, but I DO prefer JW at the mike this time out. Steve Lukather also handles all the guitar himself this time with no Tony Spinner (too bad I liked the guy). Steve is as as great as ever and the show feels wonderfully
different (for a longtime fan) and like Deep Purple, they seem to keep the integrity of the band while changing up the players.
If this is your first DVD get it, if you have every DVD its still worth it because they even change the "usual" songs
and improvise so you can't complain about some songs that you've seen before.
TOTO is one of the few bands that you can actually watch from start to finish and LOVE the whole thing; no skipping cuts
or wishing the concert was configured differently. This is no exception, but an exceptional concert that will surely
see some mileage on my surround system. Wings of Time is absolutely "killer" and so is Better World, but these guys
are not a "has-been" band, they truly are amazing to see and hear.
Seasoned session players who have created a masterful catalogue of MUSIC of different genres, all woven together.
Sad to see Simon Phillips leave (although he's on this one) as his groove is Jeff Porcaro approved!
Luke to me is the glue that pulls it all together and he gets better with time, his guitar work majestically perfect.
I wish I could have interviewed these guys for the bonus behind the scenes. The only complaint is it's not long enough.
I'm in TOTO heaven and look forward to their new album in 2015.
