Even though the recently re-formed Toto will probably not release another studio work in the foreseeable future, fans of the American AOR band currently have reason to rejoice: On February 26, both guitarist STEVE LUKATHER and singer JOSEPH WILLIAMS will release their new solo albums. The highlight: The childhood friends supported each other during the productions, and keyboardist David Paich was also involved in each case, so that both records together almost make a Toto album, according to Lukather
With their new studio album "Toto XIV", the first in nine years, Toto want to continue their great deeds in the eighties. And on paper the chances are not bad, after all there are three founding members in the current line-up as well as singer Joseph Williams, who once refined the albums "Fahrenheit" and "The Seventh One". Nevertheless, the US band doesn't remain in the past with their sound, rather they have delivered a multi-layered work that easily stands up to comparison with younger groups. But it could have been her last record.
