About the Artist

Toto are responsible for some of the best sounding albums in 80's rock. With top of the range studio facilities and outstanding musicians, founders David Paich, Bobby Kimball, Steve Lukather and the Porcaro brothers know how to craft a song or two. Their fourth album, released in 1982, was aptly titled IV and contains world hits 'Rosanna' and 'Africa'. Noteworthy contestants for 'best songs' on this legendary album are 'Make Believe' and 'I Won't Hold You Back', both of which have proven chart success. The band was arguably at its commercial and musical peak with this Grammy winning album.

After doing some research on the Sony SACD releases, I found that this specific TOTO release (Nov.2003) is the final one which offers SACD audio in both Stereo and Multi-Channel formats (initial 1999 release was stereo, the May 2002 was Stereo/Multi-Channel).
I am a huge fan of this album, and the moment I pressed PLAY on my player, I realised that the guys at Sony did a tremendous amount of work. I was afraid that this could be an simple digital transfer from old digital masters (from audio CD) but I was wrong. The guys seem to have converted to DSD all instrument tracks for each song, and the end result is just an amazing feeling of this music.
I have never heard Pop/Rock music from the 80's with such splendor, the surround here is not just 'echo' but proper instrument placement, while the overall clarity is worth of this purchase. Minor hissing is present, but hey, analog tapes of the 80's are the best place to start a DSD transfer.
If you like this album, wether you had purchased the initial SACD Stereo version or not, this is a must for all 80's music fans. The instruments, voices and ambiance is just too good to be true. I have certainly not regretted buying this title. I strongly recommend it to all those SACD lovers out there.

Toto were famous for playing on megastars albums e.g. Lionel Richies 'Can't slow down' but up until the release of this 1983 classic were largely unknown in their own right bar the hit 'Hold the line'. This release brought them well and truly out of the shadows and was barely off my turntable when it came out.
The album kicks off with the grammy winning single 'Rosanna' sung by Steve Lukather and Bobby Kimball. A mega pot pourri of sounds; brassy with razor sharp guitar. Here, it's longer than the single release with an extended instrumental fade out. 'Make believe' was a single but is actually a rather standard track so bombed. Next up is Steve Lukathers 'I won't hold you back'; beautiful, a lovely ballad which took the band to the top 10 in the states but was not as successful in the UK. Bobby Kimballs 'Good for you' is next up, as standard pace effort contrasting well with Steve Porcaros 'It's a feeling' which closed the original side one. Back to back rockers 'Afraid of love' and 'Lovers in the night' follow and merge into each other. Stomping AOR at its best. 'We made it' is probably the albums weak point but then comes a slushy soulful Kimball sung effort called 'Waiting for your love', panned by the critics when released as a single but without justification. Finally, the album closes with the magnificent 'Africa' which everyone must have heard; again extended from its single release.
One of the best AOR albums in my collection.

This is the Toto album that has sold more than the rest of the back catalogue put together.
It's a masterpiece of an album, opening with the classic Rosanna, ending with another classic (Africa), and packed with outstanding songs. There isn't a single filler on this CD, each piece has it's place.
This was also the last album with Bobby Kimball until Mindfields a couple of years ago, in between there have been 3 others until the other members decided to take over themselves (mostly Steve Lukather).
Bottom line, get it. 8 grammys can't be wrong.

If you found this CD by searching for SACDs, don't make the same mistake as Amazon; it's only recorded in standard CD format. They have made the same listing error with several CDs, notably Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here. I don't like using the star rating in this manner but Amazon ignore all notifications that they have made a mistake. Hope this helps anyone thinking they are about to purchase a bargain SACD.

Wow! Just wow.

I love this album and it has been a favourite of mine for years. One thing I always wished for was a remastered version as the original recording is rather poor. Well, my wish has finally come true and I wasn't prepared for how amazing this new version sounds. I am discovering things in each song I just couldn't hear before. All the instruments sounds alive and exciting.

If you love Toto 4 and you are looking for the ultimate version. Then this my friends is it!

Buy it now, you won't be disappointed.

This was based on the 2014 Remastered version.

I'm not a big TOTO fan. But I always liked the song "Africa". So I bought TOTO IV on cd a few years ago but was not happy with the sound quality. It sounded poor, thin and without any volume. It was not an invitation to discover the other songs.

When I heard that Culture Factory would release a remasterd version I had no doubts about buying it again. I already own a few releases of that record company so I knew they would do a wonderful job. And it really is amazing!! It's like listening to a completly different record! That's how good it is!

And I can't understand that a big record company (as I believe Sony is) was not able to release a remasterd edition of TOTO IV in the past. A shame, really a shame!!

This is the definitive remasterd version of TOTO IV. Although the price on Amazon is way to high.

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.
