1. This album supports the album "Falling in Between" so it's not trying to cover all the hits. Having just seen them perform brilliantly in Auckland, I picked up their DVD to see that this incredible Parisian concert was almost identical to the concert I saw 2nd March 2008. This DVD showcases Toto at the top of their form - this is what they're like now and they rock!
2. We have a new keyboardist, the vastly experienced Greg Phillinganes, plus the bass legend Leland Sklar standing in for Mike Porcaro. These new musicians bring a difference and their own style and enthusiasm so that when you see them perform tracks which they also did on their 'Live in Amsterdam' DVD, like 'Africa' for example, you are seeing something unique - check out the cheeky keyboard solo sounds. What is a great addition on this DVD's is 'Pamela'. Simply wow! Funky, slick with the richest vocal harmonies - beautiful.
3. This DVD is worth the price alone to see the stunning Simon Phillips play an amazing drum solo over Greg on keyboard playing the odd-time signature, 'Hydra'. I believe Simon has over 20 mikes on his kit and like all their live recordings his drum tone is instantly recognisable - a drum kit that is sonically a pleasure. (Alas 'Live in Amsterdam' had no drum solo).
4. This DVD rocks harder with fresh arrangements and wonderful improvisation - from the opening stunner 'Falling in between', Bobby stamps his vocal authority and Luke is soloing with an intensity that is up a notch from their previous DVD.Read more ›
I would put this concert DVD in the all time top 3 (Boz Scaggs Live is amazing as well)
anyway, the band is tight, great mix from the board... incredible 5.1 audio and video, love the setlist..
Simon Phillips is sick, just stellar..., appreciate the contributions of the new bandmates..
have always wanted them to jam out I'll Supply the love... it has so much potential live
other personal favorites: Pamela, Rosanna, Africa (killer version, gives me chills past the 3:30 mark, Falling...)
to sum it up: this is why HD was created, for this specific concert dvd
great job band, sound engineer, mix, video (my only criticism: during Simon's drum solo, when he does a couple amazing fills, the camera is focused on Greg, the cameraman misses the best fill of his solo)
any other drummers notice????
Great DVD, one of the all time best, only wish more of them sounded and looked this good!
They rock, they swoon, they reggae, they soul, they funk, the just flat tear it apart.
I have the CD of the live album right after Simon Phillips joined back in the 90's version of the band after the passing of the Jeff the great!, and that disc was at that time just stellar. This one just lapped it at over 100 mph. Jeff is smiling on his heavenly drum stool! He would be most proud.
The band is solid, the vocals are out of this world. Tony Spinner, holy crap, how did Luke snag him? SOLID ADDITION TO THE BAND DUDE.
Being a bassist myself, do we have to say more about Leland Skylar, get some of his work with the Barefoot Servants, this cat just puts the B in bottom end!
The DVD is beyond great in production.
You will keep this playing for days and days.
Hear is hoping these guys can hit the road here in the States and show the american fan base some love!

Like everyone... I knew Toto more for Hold the Line, Rosanna, and Africa and a handful of slower songs I didn't think all that much about. I knew they were considered great musicians, a touch progressive, and lighter than most hard rock or metal. I thought I knew they had a well renowned guitarist that sort of didnt get to shine within the Toto framework. WRONG on that account. They rock plain and simple and Steve Lukather (their guitarist) really riffs it up in an impressive way (but also with feel and control). His guitar tone is great.
Anyway, this BluRay is great and it showcases a good mix of things new and old from Toto. I LOVE it... the video is great... the sound is great... the musicianship is great and even the short little interviews are very entertaining. If you like any form of hard rock music... I think you will like this.
What happened after I bought this about a month ago is, I first checked my CD collection to surprise myself that I only had their first greatest hits CD and nothing else... not even Toto IV. I then logged on to Amazon and bought every CD that was 6.99 (which is many of them). After getting those and enjoying ALL of them, I proceeded to buy just about everything else reasonably priced. I still do not have mindfields and a few others. I even went and bought some of Lukather's solo CDs. I realize man... I missed out on some great things through the years from Toto... but the fun has been that I have been able to catch up in a huge way lately.Read more ›
