5.0 out of 5 stars Toto comes to your living room!, 25 April 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: IV (Audio CD)
This classic AOR album from 1982 is given new life by the painstakinglyre-engineered multi-channel sound. As a big fan of Toto I tend to listento their less well known stuff (they are still together after 26 years) asit is easy to tire of the still much played radio friendly Africa, Rosannaetc. However, the multi channel treatment has re-invigorated these wellknown classics and, in particular, I think Africa is absolutely stunning.Not far behind are Afraid of Love and Lovers In the Night, not to mentionRosanna and the beautiful I Won't Hold You Back. Close your eyes and youcould swear that your are sat centre stage with the band all aroundyou.
I get very frustrated by the lack of recognition this band gets. They aresuperb musicians who can turn their hand to just about any genre and alsowork very hard - they are constantly on the road and play the Royal AlbertHall this June. The stuff they made in the 90's can be at times awesome.Nevertheless if you are new to them and like being surrounded by the soundof experts at their trade playing something reasonably familiar, this is agreat place to start. I seem to recall they were nominated for 8 Grammieson the back of this album.
One word of caution, please do not be fooled into buying the 1999 SACDversion of this album - it is stereo coming out of 5 channels andironically is often the more expensive product. This later version is truere-engineering into multi-channel sound and is simply delicious.
