Fahrenheit is a beautiful Toto album. And that's really saying a lot. Another Amazon reviewer summed up Fahrenheit perfectly: "Summer and romance" - that really says everything you need to know. There's a certain romantic mystique, a kind of autumn-like, gorgeous ethereal quality to this album that I really only find on this album and to a certain extent "The Seventh One". It really encapsulates the late 80's with beautiful ambiance, perfect instrument dynamics, incredible grooves that turns on a dime. There's also an hint of sadness in the romance, listen to I'll be over you, listen to Somewhere, tonight...it's there - the classic sweet sorrow. Some parts are so ambient and soulful it almost makes you cry - listen to the end of "Lea" with those gorgeous Don Henley backing vocals at the end. Listen to "Could this be love", with those amazing dead-on chorus backing vocals, and gorgeous ending modulations - and feel yourself recapture that youthful first love, that first crush, those...
With Toto, either you love them or you hate them. I'll assume if you're checking this item out, you love the band and are familiar with the music on this CD. If you're not, but you love polished, expertly played studio session music of the likes of Steely Dan, later-day Doobie Brothers, 70s and 80s Boz Scaggs, and even early 80s Quincy Jones, Kenny Loggins, Al Jarreau, and Michael Jackson (what a combination, eh?), then you'll love this CD. (Most of Toto played on all of those artists' CDs.)
What I'll address is the new remastering. While a casual listen will reveal an improvement, a serious listening session will finally show what a great recording this disc was. More warmth, clarity, dynamics, and "space" have been given to the instruments and vocals. I heard faint flourishes by keyboards, percussion instruments and even vocals that I've never heard since I purchased the original CD in 1989. Yes, as with many remasters made in the new millennium, the...
Toto's "Fahrenheit" is NOT a bad album, not at all! It's very melodic, and if you ask me, the album where Steve Porcaro gets to perform a lot. Well, actually, this is their album where all three of the Porcaro brothers gets to play to the limit. This is also the new singer Joseph William's first album out of two and he does a wonderul job! I can see my self in an 80's bar listening to this stuff on the radio, it's that kind of music if you ask me. Steve P makes this CD just like any other music from the 80's - SYNTH! "We can make it Tonight" and "Fahrenheit" is very harmonic and is summermusic, you know this special music from the 80's that fits SO good to the summer, just like taken from the movie Beverly Hills Cop, doesn't it?! Fahrenheit is a mixture of romance and summer. On the romance side we've got "Could this be Love", "I'll be over you" and "Lea" amongst others, and we've already gone through the summerside. The...
