Overview

Toto XX: 1977-1997 is hardly the definitive collection that its title suggests. Essentially, this is a Toto reunion album, featuring nine new studio cuts and four live tracks, including a version of "Africa." The band sounds better than you might expect, but the material isn't all that different from that on Tambu -- the performances are a little tighter, slicker and better. That said, it's not particularly interesting to anyone except hardcore fans, who will probably be pleased to hear an approximation of the original lineup back in action, regardless if the tunes are memorable or not.

This is not meant to be a greatest hits album. Rather, it is a compilation of unreleased songs and demos from this talented group. Reading the liner notes along with the songs is like taking a journey through time. The live songs serve a purpose, and aren't just filler. If you are a fan of the original line-up, as well as the Joseph Williams years, you will not be disappointed.
