The Best of 2014!
January 26, 2015 -
2014, the year that was. The Best of lists from Mike, Pete, Jez, Terry, and myself have been posted. A strong year, but actually there was less consensus amongst the 5 of us then there has ever been. That tells me there were a LOT of good releases across many genres. Feel free to add your own list at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!

|This is basically a Los Lobotomys release & not a Lukather solo release,so don't go expecting any Toto like stuff on this. What you get is the mainly instrumental Rock/Fusion type thingy, with Luke playing an absolute blinder throughout. The Band ain't no slouches either, Simon Phillips needs no introductions, John Pena is one Amazing bass player & David Garfield an excellent keyboardist. One track on this sums up the whole disc and that is 'Froth' - just sit back and be amazed, be very amazed.

|That's correct, it's not TOTO like album , or an AOR album, but tracks like Borrowed Times or Never Walk Alone will satisfy any AOR lover apetite

|Sorry Jez, but this all just leaves me cold. I know I should have more of an open mind, and should marvel at the technical aspects of the musicianship etc etc. But this is not my thing at all, and truth be told it just bores me. "Borrowed Time" is a great track, and pretty much warrants me keeping this album, and it is better than "Luke". But it's nowhere close the the "Lukather" album, which combines great songwriting and musicianship on one album. 5/10.

|TIM - i can see what you mean - a bit of a 'Musos' release i think - you either like it or you don't.

|Sorry guys, I think it's still a Toto-like album. Just listen to Kingdom Of Desire (esp. Jake To The Bone) and Tambu albums, they still have the same atmosphere. Dont compare this to the Fahrenheit or Seventh One era. This is more guitar-driven. One thing never change from Mr Lukather (except his dissapointing 3rd album) is his typical chord progression and his lead solos, very impressive, sweet and jazz-oriented. Song For Jeff is a real tear jerker. Superb solo effort.

|This is nothing short of a phenomenal album. This is Toto's dark side showing the way Luke presented it on the here last Toto album Kingdom Of Desire which is just as much of a gem. Toto is one of these bands I basically like everything from. Them making the transition from Rock to Jazz, Pop to R&B and back is what makes them great. The fact that whatever they're playing they don't ever lose one inch of credibility, it's all highest quality material for you to enjoy. The thing is you gotta understand the band and their motivation of playing this wide range of genres back and forward to feel what they're all about. Luke's solo efforts are just like it even though he's Hard Rock what Toto is to AOR first of all. That said this is a Hard Rock release. However also on this one there are the typical moments of trademark Toto resemblance. If you understand the brilliance that is Luke's playing high class Hard Rocking music with moments of fusion I'd say pick it up right now.

|Miles ahead of his first Solo album and i know this is supposed to be Los Lobotomys but it has Luke all over and in front of it. It goes away from the typical TOTO sound, going more in the Blues and Fusion corner, Luke's main band only sometimes showed (Jake to the Bone). It has a great production and a "Live"-feel to it. There isn't a bad song here.
