4.0 out of 5 stars Luke's Pen now mightier than his sword. January 13, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I notice that Luke has some co-writers on various songs.But if he is the motive force behind the lyrics, then he really is letting us see into his soul.His guitar playing, superb as always although conventional, is cast into relief by the strength and meaning of the words.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!! November 15, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
What a great cd. Steve Lukather is with out a doubt one of the best guitar players around today. The thing that sets him apart is the ability to write catchy songs with deep lyrics. This is a superb rock album, covering all styles from hard rock, pop, and even a little bit of country. If you want a great rock album that sticks in your mind long after you have turned it off, GET THIS CD!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars LUKE - STEVE LUKATHER November 16, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Steve Lukather's 3rd solo album is, in his own words, "...a bit of a departure...this record is the closest amalgamation of all the different facets of me than anything I have recorded in the past..." LUKE encompasses a variety of catchy tunes, intense flavours, raw sounds and awesome playing; it also features inspired songwriting collaborations with Fee Waybill, Phil Soussan, Randy Goodrum and Rodney Crowell. The record kicks off with the dark, gutsy and driven riff of The real truth. Cool hook, great harmony vocals and a mindblowing guitar solo. My personal favourite is Love the things you hate, another monster groove with Gregg Bissonette and Phil Soussan, enhanced by Luke's own electric sitar performance. Tears of my own shame is Hendrix-esque and Hate everything about you is Dylan-esque; the album also includes Stephen Stills' Bluebird. In addition to vocal, guitar and sitar, Luke plays a variety of vintage keyboards and harmonica which add a spectrum of interesting tones and colours. In addition to contributing his sublime talents to hundreds of top 40 records, Steve Lukather is a musicians' musician. For me, this record is the epithesis of that talent. Get your teeth stuck into this one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff November 17, 2001
Format:Audio CD
What can I say! Steve is a great song writer and he sings and plays guitar with such soul. A perfect example is the song "Tears of my own Shame" the third track on the album which has got to be my favourite. It has a really smooth, "jimi hendrix" like guitar riff that is just really funky - I just can't stop listening to it.This song's "fav" status is closely followed by several others on the album like "You'd always be there for me" in which he experiments with playing other instruments (he's a multi talented guy) and "Blue bird" is cool too. This is different from his Toto stuff, musicians and guitarists alike will love this album :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars awesome! October 13, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'd just sum my review up in a few words. Steve Lukather is without a doubt one of the the best singer/songwriter/guitarists on the planet today! This album shows a side of Steve that you're not going to get on any Toto albums (for the most part). There are influences from country to grunge on this disc, and it does take a few listens to fully appreciate it- but every song on this album is great. Now, only if the U.S record companies would give Steve and Toto the promotion and tour support they deserve, so more people are aware of some awesome music out there!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bitter, Angry, Hard Driving Guitar Rock at it's best October 26, 1998
Format:Audio CD
Lukather SHINES on this CD. This is probably the most emotionally charged CD I've ever listened to! Lukather at his absolute best.

5.0 out of 5 stars A guitar enthusiast's "must have"!!! February 1, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Thus ain't Toto. Steve shines bright on this offering. Not that he doesn't play excellent with Toto, this is just a different side of him. His song writing and guitar playing have matured in leaps and bounds from the, 1989, Lukather solo release. I can't listen to this album enough. Each song has a character and feel all it's own. His rendition of Jeff Beck's The Pump, though a bit over the top, is still fun to listen to.
I would be interested in hearing from anyone that saw the Luke tour live, to hear what it was like.

4.0 out of 5 stars A winner, but a 4 star since I'm a tough reviewer March 26, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I loved the cd. I was unaware of Lukathers' solo career. This was my first of his, but had many Toto. I have recommended this cd to friends and family. I highly recommend this cd to any fan of music. If you are aware of Toto, you know the quality work they do and have done throughout the years. Any ballad by Lukather is worth the price of the cd alone. I actually bought it and sent it out as stocking stuffers to family. If you buy a cd, buy this one. You will not regret it.

Boring rock track after rock. Some experimentation with country music and some dull acoustic guitar driven tracks, but none of the melody of a good toto song. Read more
