Outside Inside

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Dave Connolly
Another bit of clever packaging outside the record label featured an iris that appeared through a cutout on the sleeve and inside, where producer David Foster and even more members of Toto help the Tubes punch up their new radio-ready sound with added energy. If their last record showed a newfound dancefloor sensibility, Outside Inside is absolutely funky.

Outside Inside is definitely a party record, which is fine, except that the Tubes were never a party band after all, their most radio-friendly album to date, The Completion Backward Principle, was still pretty dark. The change in direction will probably alienate old fans, just as it clearly attracted new ones the record reached the U.S. Top 20. If you enjoyed their hits from the '80s e.g., "Talk to You Later," "She's a Beauty", this is the album to own.
