Always original....up till now !
on 12 October 2010
I'm Toto & Steve Lukather's biggest fan !...but i have to say, for the first ever, i think that Luke is running out of idea's ! ? Listening to this latest release is enjoyable, but at the same time, very annoying ! All through the album you can hear things you've heard before, to the point where it's almost a blatant rip off ! ( if you could rip off, your own work ? )
There's parts of " The Seventh One " ( track ) " After You've Gone " from " Mindfields ", The instrumental, sounds like " Jake to the Bone ", in places. I've listened to the album several times now, and each time i find myself wanting to play through all the past albums, to pick out the parts that sound the same. It's extremely annoying ! I've followed Steve Lukather & Toto from the begining, and i've never known them repeat themselves, but i'm afraid Luke has, in this latest offering. His last release, " Ever Changing Times " was so much better, and original, compared to this !
