Default Any Fans Of Toto?

I've become a huge fan within the past year. I've always been a fan of their most well-known material (Africa, Roseanna, Hold The Line, I Won't Hold You Back, I'll Be Over You) but I started delving deeper into the band's catalogue and have found songs that I really, really love. Takin' It Back has become one of my all-time favorite songs. Carmen, Angel Don't Cry and Endless from the Isolation album have also become among songs that I listen to on a regular basis.

Lately, I've been hooked on Lea. God what a song! It's such a well-written song but the vocals from Joseph Williams (who I've also become a huge fan of) and the closing vocal overlays are so beautiful.

I've always kind of questioned why Toto IV was so acclaimed because even though the band is recognized world-wide, they don't have the huge success outside of it. Listening to that album, I understand why because while the hit songs are so good, the other songs on the album are also fantastic. Waiting For Your Love is such a great song that a lot of people probably would expect when they think of Toto. The musicianship and production of Toto IV is absolutely top notch.

Toto also has some similarities to Fleetwood Mac with several lead singer changes throughout the years, the notion that while they're recognized as a great band, one album rightly or wrongly is put on a pedestal over others and in the past few years the Toto has had to go to court to fight for the band's name.
