Toto: Turn Back

Released: Jan 1981 / Produced by: Toto and Geoff Workman

Early attempt at straight-ahead rock from Toto is mostly disappointing, in many ways marred by dated production of one-time Journey producer Workman (evidenced by successful live renditions of same material during later tours).

David Paich is conspicuously absent vocally, and most of the songs, with exception of sprightly "Goodbye Elenore," "Gift With A Golden Gun," and the brutal "English Eyes," are mostly undistinguished. Bobby Kimball's vigorous vocals and Lukather's guitar clinic are about the only standouts here, and there were no top 40 charting single. Original LP package did include a cool poster, though. This one is for aficionados only.
