1.0 out of 5 stars Be careful!, 7 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great price and super delivery for this product, but I guess you always get what you pay for! After 3 weeks of little use and only out the house 3-4 times, the inner stitching burst while on my son's back. Fortunately no lasting damage to the guitar when it fell to the floor, but pretty disappointed after just a short time. Be careful folks....

3.0 out of 5 stars Don't be ripped off................, 12 Nov 2007
This BOOTLEG DVD captures the band on tour in support of the "Through The Looking Glass" album, and although the footage is good and professionally shot, it is completely unofficial and unauthorised by TOTO. Look at getting your hands on their "Live In Amsterdam" DVD instead if you haven't already done so, the same songs are there in much better quality.
Or hang off til February 2008 when the new tour DVD comes out............

Crazy price for this release tho, and its not worth it really!

5.0 out of 5 stars ALBUM OF THE YEAR from the giants of AOR...., 11 Feb 2006
This review is from: Falling in Between (Audio CD)
Stunning in every way - the quality, in every aspect of "Falling In Between", is difficult to put into words unless you have actually heard it. Just when you thought there were no more surprises from a band who have been together for nearly 30 years, this release gives you a gentle kick between the legs and gives your head a massage of the finest rock you are ever likely to hear.
The production, mainly overseen by Simon Phillips, is simply superb, and will get you finding new things with every listen.
Each member of the band, including "new boy" Greg Phillinganes, has never sounded better than on this recording, and that is probably due to the fact that they have spent nearly a year creating a masterpiece which they are, and rightly should be, proud of. Steve Porcaro is here in abundance, adding clever touches to most of the tracks, and Joe Williams makes a triumphant return to duet with Luke. Nice touch.
For me, there are no stand-out cuts on this album, 'cos each track is an absolute GEM! From the brutal opening of the title track to the funk of "Let It Go", the mesmorising "Bottom of Your Soul" to the sheer adrenaline of "Taint Your World", the musicianship and enjoyment is clear. Album of the year without a doubt - and that's any year!

5.0 out of 5 stars Groove-laden holiday release from TOTO guitarist....., 6 Nov 2005
This review is from: Santamental (Audio CD)
WOW! What a truly awesome album in soooo many ways! I know what you’re thinking – “Christmas CD’s, what a total drag, they’re so bloody cheesy”. Right? Wrong on this count, brother, no mouldy stuff here whatsoever. Even the two brand new tracks written by Luke for this project are like fresh TOTO songs. The groove on “Broken Heart…” is as good as anything he’s ever produced, and is quite simply a killer track with clever lyrics by his pal, Stan Lynch.
Luke and Jeff Babko have done such really clever arrangements with the tunes and harmonies that sometimes it’s kinda hard to pick out the ‘traditional’ melody we all know. But that’s not to say there’s no Christmas vibe here, it grooves and relaxes at the same time, and the groove comes dominantly from Luke and the supporting cast. Eddie Van Halen is here, his first new session in a long while, Slash, Edgar Winter, Gregg Bissonette, Steve Vai, Mike Landau & the late Sammy Davis Jnr, a really clever duet on “Jingle Bells”. Luke’s son Trevor is also introduced to his first session – in 5/4 no less, well played man!
This might be a Christmas CD, but I can guarantee I’ll be still playing this when the tree and decorations are long back in the loft! You won’t be disappointed – get a hold of this now, even if you’re reading this in July!
