We’ve lost count of the number of Toto compilations, especially since they cover more or less the same selection each time. Since the album IV, a true hold-up from 1982, with two worldwide hits, “Rosanna” and “Africa”, and a torrent of awards (no less than six Grammy Awards), the band which gathered some of the most efficient studio sharks in the world has gone through many hardships without ever recreating this feat. But they didn’t prove unworthy, however, as evidenced by this Greatest Hits: 40 Trips Around The Sun, mostly destined to be released alongside a big new worldwide tour which will celebrate the fortieth anniversary of the release of their first album, Toto. If Toto’s creativity had really dried up 36 years ago, it probably still wouldn’t draw such huge crowds today. Other than “Rosanna”, it’s without surprise that you’ll find some of those first names ending with an “a” (pure coincidence, according to Lukather), with “Pamela” and “Lea” here (“Angela”, “Manuela Run”, “Holyanna” and “Mushanga” are missing).
