I think Toto are a band that never got the respect they should have. They put down some important work on their first four albums, although the second was a bit of a letdown. Toto was a commercial band with dept. Normally I stay away from commercial music, especially from the 80s, but these guys had something to them. They were intelligent, they could rock, they could be soft, they were progressive and they could put down a beat. I think they drew so much flack because they were one band that showed how popular music should be done, which is something too many people can't wrap their heads around. Although the fifth disc in this collection shows them degrading into the spiritless music tag that was attached to them early on, I think the other four discs, for the most part, show why this is a band that deserves to be taken seriously.

I grew up with Toto albums. My first one (Toto I) was an LP, and then their second ("Hydra") was a cassette tape. This boxset offers first 5 album in the CD format. All original, not re-mastered by someone "non-original" (often re-mastered albums are too "tweaked" for more palatable but un-faithful to the original. As a bona-fide Toto fan (I learned everything from them how to play the guitar and how to set up rack effects etc. etc.), I definitely recommend this boxset. It is very affordable, too!

These five albums are a great 4-to-5-star music. I repeat, music. However, the sound coming from these bundled CDs is somewhat unclear, muddy, distorted/harsh midrange and treble, lacking dynamics, and nothing close to the original LPs or properly produced and manufactured CDs. This disappointment has made me purchase the audiophile quality LP replica versions of the Toto, Hydra and IV CDs, as well as separately issued and re-mastered Turn Back and Isolation CDs, and now my Toto's sound the way they should. I do not recommend buying this 5 CD package at all.

This is well worth the purchase; if for no other reason than I and IV are fantastic! II, III and V are decent, and worth investing time into listening.
