Toto: Fahrenheit

Released: Aug 1986 / Produced by: Toto

Toto's Fahrenheit was a return to form enabled by the gritty vocal debut of Joseph Williams (son of composer John), fine band arranging /production, and solid material. Mid-80's slick in places (particularly drum-machine heavy title track), while bordering overtly commercial ("Can This Be Love, "I'll Be Over You," -- Billboard #11), but effective set which was a vast improvement over the previous release, Isolation.

Opener "Till The End" mimics Michael Jackson (it was 1986), but Williams takes immediate charge and is obviously much better match than earlier replacement Frederiksen. Airy but tight Tom Knox/Greg Ladanyi mix leaves plenty of space. Paich continues mysterious vocal exile, singing lead on 1 and 1/2 tunes. Standouts: moody "Somewhere Tonight," singable "We Can Make It Tonight", and offbeat, beautifully haunting "Lea" (featuring exquisite David Sanborn sax and Don Henly support vocal). Recommended.
