Endless, How Does It Feel, Carmen and Lion are amazing.

Endless is my favourite Toto song.

I guess its to late to scratch out "and possibly some others" from the thread title at this point.... ;)

:laughing guy:

Me and Segue are the only 2 fans.......it's ok.  don't care.  It's better then just me posting in this thread over and over and over, lol

Mick
At least you have someone to talk to about Toto.  I've been looking for a Police fan to gush with and, for the most part, have been talking to myself.  I do find it mind boggling that a Rush fan would like John Denver more than The Police.  I know I've already said that, but I can't tell you how astonishing I find that.  

Anyway....be grateful you have another person to gush with.  
Maybe a Police fan will show up .........
I am sure Segue will join you soon. I have never really been a fan. I have two beautiful barely played vinyl copies of Zenyatta Mondatta in my collection. Not sure how I got two of them. I know I didn't buy either one. Mrs Narpski must have bought one of them. I inherited some of her albums long ago and some of them are actually good.. :huh:

The song that made me THE TOTO FAN I AM TODAY.

I forgive the record a lot just because of that song. I love the album, but it is only down to How Does It Feel and Endless that I raise it just a tad above IV and the debut.

TOTO'S FIRST NEW ALBUM IN 10 YEARS GIVEN RELEASE DATE
Jan . 8
First New Studio Album in Ten Years Out In Europe 3/20,
The UK and Oceania on 3/23, and North America on 3/24

Frontiers Music Srl has announced a March 20 release date for TOTO XIV in Europe, with The UK and Oceania on 3/23, and North America on March 24. The album will hit retail globally, with specific dates for territories in Asia, South America and others to follow. Configurations include CD, with a deluxe edition available featuring a "making of" documentary on DVD, expanded booklet that includes an in depth story and interview about the new album alongside exclusive pictures in ecol-book packaging. Additionally Toto XIV will be available as a 2LP vinyl set, and a Super Deluxe limited edition which includes the Deluxe CD/DVD edition, 2LP vinyl, an exclusive poster, t-shirt (large size only), and lithograph. The album will be available via all digital retailers.

A pre-order is available via Amazon:
LP Edition
CD Edition
Deluxe Edition

The new album is a realized vision three plus decades in the making exhibiting world-class musicianship, masterful arrangements, topical lyrical commentary, and melodies that the collective genius of Lukather, Paich, Porcaro, Williams and their assembled band-mates bring to life. TOTO XIV is the band’s first album of new material since 2006’s Falling In Between. However, the band personally considers the new album to be the true follow-up to TOTO IV, which made the band global superstars.

Keyboardist Steve Porcaro reveals, "This is opposite of going through the motions. We are treating this like it is Toto V, our follow-up to TOTO IV. We just want to be the best version of ourselves that we can be. Be true to ourselves and make the best music we can. Entertain people which is what we were put on this Earth for." Keyboardist David Paich reflects, "I think of TOTO as a unit and a band that carries a responsibility when it goes out there in to the public consciousness. There is so much negativity and darkness that I think you have to be as Quincy Jones puts it, 'beams of light that blast through the darkness'."

As they began the process of a return the studio, all of the principle long-term members brought their A-game to the table. Guitarist Steve "Luke" Lukather offers, "When you put us in a room, and everybody brings in their pieces, the next thing you know it all fits together. Everybody's performances are top notch. We are really bringing our best out, forcing ourselves to make personal best choices, what's best for the music. I'm really excited to hear what people think." Singer Joseph Williams adds, "We are talking about a band where everybody is a writer, and everybody is a lead singer, and everybody is a player. All involved brought this trio to the table where it could just live on its own."

Founding bassist David Hungate returns to the fold, about whom Luke simply offers, "No one plays like David Hungate." Drums were performed by Keith Carlock who's commitments to Steely Dan prohibit him from participating in the 2015 World Tour. Shannon Forest will be behind the kit, who was a part of the band's 2014 North American run. Luke offers, "Shannon is a world class drummer and we are honored to have him back with us."

The sessions were co-produced by CJ Vanston, who Paich looks upon as, "everything a producer is supposed to be and more - a musicians producer." Vanston states, "There have never been better musicians on the planet, especially in a band together. This is an amazing record and I am completely thrilled to be a part of it. This is a dream job for me." Porcaro offers an additional thought stating, "I think the band is hit upon a very healthy creative tension for this project. I'm very excited about it." For Williams he reflects, "Just imagine being able to stand on stage in front of enormous crowd of people, and you are playing great music with the best musicians in the world, and you look around, and they are some of your best friends in the world. It's the best feeling any person could have." For Porcaro he shares, "It is kind of hard to find words of what it means to have a smile on your face to go to work every day and we have the fans to thank for that - so thank you."

This annoyed me a little bit...sounds like they are dismissing a lot of their best work.

Agreed! It looks so eighties, but with state of the art modern graphics!

But I hold a special place in my heart for the city romanticism of Fahrenheit's cover art. This new album is on that same level!

I do love the number 14 on the door! Makes up for the unoriginal title.

I think not...I have not heard a thing about him in ages.

And the production on IV was so glossy, even Kimball was bearable!

Replaying IV. Actually top three. Sorry Isolation...
