Everything you need to know about melodic guitar playing is to be heard here!
Pure 80s pop perfection
A early 80s classic. Sure, its overproduced and OTT but it makes it even more sweeter. The well known hits 'Africa' and 'Rosanna' are on here, but 'Waiting for Your Love', 'Make Believe' and the fantastic ballad 'I Won't Hold You Back' make it a must have.

Once upon a time, there was Toto. You didn't need to hear much else in the realm of power ballads. They had most of it sewn up. 'Toto IV' bridged the 70s and 80s, combining the best elements of both musical realms. There was the snappy pop and crackle of the 70s, mixed in with the big drama and grand sounds of the 80s. Or was it the other way round? Anyway, the result was a lot of class, perhaps a touch too much melodrama in places, but plenty of sweet guitar – and those vocals! The gamble worked. 'Rosanna' and 'Africa' remain, to this day, superlative pop statements.
