||Toto 'Rocks' the foundations|
After a long absence from their previous relatively commercial 'flop' studio album 'The Seventh One', this was Toto's return album. Also having been plagued with personel problems, this was to be a much leaner and meaner 4 piece Toto with the 2 Porcaro brothers Jeff and Mike, Steve Lukather and David Paich. With a much much rockier, heavier and at times darker presence, than before, it was to be the last album that Jeff Porcaro performed his magic on, because not long after the album was recorded he was tragically killed in a most bizarre and unforseen of deaths (having inhaled pesticide whilst gardening, triggering a serious, undiagnosed heart condition, resulting in a fatal heart attack). Thus the masterful genius of his unbelievable talent was cut short in his prime...(and I feel robbed of the most expressive drummer of my generation). Toto literally 'rock' on this album and strip back all the gloss and any 'prettiness' of any previous Toto recordings...they mean business and give a gritty, dirtier, heavy metallic treatment to songs like 'gypsy train', 'don't chain my heart', 'never enough', 'how many times', 'she knows the devil'. They tone it down a notch on ballads such as 'the other side' and 'only you', and go psychedelic jazz rock on the instrumental 'jake to the bone'. Once Jeff died, everything changed and Toto were never the same. This album is the work of seasoned musicians, at their peak pushing and exploring their Rockier side. R.I.P Jeff, your genius cut down in its prime is truly missed.
