Top Customer Reviews

By Sebastian Palmer TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 12 Feb. 2013
Format: Audio CD
I'd never heard this album in its entirety until I started researching an article for Drummer magazine on Jeff Porcaro. My original intention was to write a piece on 'IV', famed for tracks such as Rosanna and Africa. As I worked my way back through their albums I expected the first to be the least impressive. Surely they'd be just finding their chemistry? I knew the core of the band had worked together a lot already as sessionistas, but I wasn't prepared for the magnificence of this at all.

Sure, it's not 100% consistent in some respects, although it's more a matter of their wide range not necessarily appealing equally to all. In term's of musical prowess and focus it's 100% consistent though, and personally I regard Toto's eclecticism as a major strength, in these days of niche-marketed uniformity. At the time of release the dullards at Rolling Stone found Toto's eclecticism and use of four vocalists* weaknesses... oh dear! As a musician myself I find, even amongst fellow musicians, that people seem to think 'the public' can't cope with more than one person taking lead vocals. Of course there are countless example to prove such narrow thinking wrong, I'll just mention one: The Beatles!

There are tunes here many will know, Hold The Line being the prime example. But there are also such lesser known gems as the rockin' Girl Goodbye, or the joyful keys-driven pop of Rockmaker - both totally new to me - the latter blending American pop rock gloss with a proto-eighties (remember this was recorded in '78!) semi-English pop vibe. Or did Toto subliminally inspire some of our more whiny punk-soused acts of the 1980s? It hardly seems credible, but there's a definite sonic parallel, even extending to the vocal stylings of composer/keys player David Paich.

Needed this for my collection of Toto works, prior to seeing them live at Hammersmith Apollo in May 2015. I put these guys up there with the best rock bands of my lifetime, they never fail to produce high quality albums and they are even better live. There latest album suggests that they will be around for a lot longer yet.Hail Lukather, Paich, Williams and Porcaro, masters of musical brilliance.

It's hard to believe, but this appears to be the first Amazon.uk review of one of Toto's best albums! Were folk worried that Hold the Line would turn out to be the only good song? It's a great single, but hardly the only decent song on a varied, very accomplished collection.

Highlights are many. Georgie Porgy (first American single, I believe) shows off the band's soulfulness and humour, plus Steve Lukather's excellence as a soloist. You Are the Flower, written by Bobby Kimball, takes those qualities even further - it's a real standout. For heavy rock, Manuela Run and Girl Goodbye are hard to ignore, and Rockmaker is a quirky hard rock moment. The icy cool, so-light-it's-almost-spectral Taking It Back would've made a good follow-up single (and maybe it was/did), again showing what a great guitarist Lukather was, even in those early days. David Paich on keyboards was another virtuoso who didn't show off unnecessarily. The Porcaro brothers made a great, interesting rhythm section. And nearly all the band could sing, which put them on a plateau with Styx.

And there's Hold the Line...

As debuts go, this is unusually mature and representative. The next lp was more progressive, the third heavier, and the fourth - well, that must be reviewed elsewhere - I'll eat this page if it isn't...

This disc is a great recording. Very clear separation between instruments and clear vocals - always important, but particularly for Toto's complex musical arrangements. The tracks are great of course, including the well known and classic track 'Hold the Line'.

Every track excellent. Fantastic album. This replaced an old tape that I had in 1979.
