TOTO – TOTO XIV
(POP/ROCK): I had “Great Expectations” for the first Toto album since 2008; they did not disappoint. Though Toto is almost a completely new band since the release of Falling in Between, they still manage to forge ahead yet capture Toto-isms from the past. “Chinatown” is David Paich at his finest. “Running Out of Time” captures Steve Lukather’s guitar pushing Toto to new heights — and “The Little Things” not only celebrates the glorious return of Steve Porcaro, but it’s one of the best Toto songs … ever.
