5.0 out of 5 stars One Of Toto's Best!! Feb. 14 2006
Format:Audio CD
Just gave this a listen to last night after having it on the shelve for awhile. I forgot just how good this release was. Stranger In Town, Holyanna & Carmen are my fav. tracks but the entire album has no weak songs, I real classic and one ot Toto's finest releases. A must have!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Average effort for this great band! March 24 2009
Format:Audio CD
Toto definitely became ambitious with this disc, but seems to have come up a bit flat. Part of the issue was controversy over the lead singer role. Why Bobby Kimball departed has never been totally clear, but the import of the capable Fergie Frederiksen didn't seem to enhance or even complement Toto. Having said that, Toto's virtuoso style continues to impress.

The best qualities of this album are its diversity. On one side, songs like "Carmen", "Change of Heart" and "Angel Don't Cry" rock as hard as Toto ever has, and the biggest reason is the style of Frederiksen's vocals. The incredible Steve Lukather can definitely play hard rock, and Jeff Porcaro is equally capable on the drum kit. On the other side, the lush balladry of "How Does It Feel" is as smooth as ever, and the jazzy stylings of "Lion" and "Holyanna" show off David Paich's ample skills and he's well complemented by Lukather again.

Oddly, the first single, "Stranger in Town", is probably the key reason this album was poorly received. The song is completely out of character for Toto, adopting new wave sensibilities and sounding more like a wannabe band than the defending Grammy Album of the Year winners! IMHO, this sent the band backwards from its multi-platinum success of "Toto IV". And with the first single tanking, fans were now wondering why the album seemed all over the place...rather than applauding its diversity of style!

My ultimate take on this album is that Toto was struggling deeply with its identity at this juncture of their career and in terms of public acclaim made them appear to be flashes in the pan. Unfortunate, because those of us who know Toto best know that they're probably the most unappreciated band of the seventies and eighties.

3.0 out of 5 stars NOT ON THE GREATEST HITS; WHY? April 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
I love "Stranger in Town" and "Holyanna". But these 2 greatest hits are not on thier Greatest Hits. They have 2 Greatest Hits CDs out and they have nothing from the Isolation album on them. Maybe it's copy rights, I don't no. I just wish Toto would put out one OUTSTANDING greatest hits CD out so we don't have to go get all their CDs. Even though I like Toto, I really only like their hits. EMail me at: blackmj@2fssg.usmc.mil with any questions.

5.0 out of 5 stars L'album des Fans de Toto ! Oct. 25 2003
Format:Audio CD
Fergie Fredericksen remplace Bobby Kimball, tandis que Mike Porcaro remplace David Hungate.
Ce cinquième album sera bien loin de connaître le même sort que le précédent.
Car, malgré l'entrée de " Stranger In Town " dans le Top 30, Isolation se vendra moins que Toto IV...
Pourtant il ne demeure pas moins comme un grand hit pour les fans, un album très abouti, très Rock, ceci grâce à l'énergie insufflé par Fergie qui en fait un album très rythmé que l'on ne se lasse pas d'écouter.
Un Must !
Best : Carmen, Isolation, Mr Friendly, Holyanna, Lion.
