That most of Toto's biggest hits were pansy-ass ballads and sprightly West Coast fare almost seemed to be justify the addition of vocalist Jean-Michael Byron's into the ranks come greatest hits time. But to Toto's rock faithful, already galled by the lack of 'Isolation' and 'Turn Back' material herein, the addition of this Tinkerbell was enough to bring on Yellow Brick Road Rage. Wisely, he was re-assigned to ballet class or men's figure skating instruction or the like.

Maravilloso recopilatorio!! recomendado para los q nunca hayan escuchado a estos dioses d la melodia romantica.

It's too bad that one of Toto's biggest selling albums...(this greatest hits) has to bring newcomers to the face of Jean-Michel Byron. At first glance, you may think that he represents Toto in some way. But upon detection, you realize, he was a 12 month mistake and Toto got back to their roots, quickly!

I actually liked the new songs on this. Granted, they weren't the best the band had ever done but they were pretty good in their own right. Too bad they left off some of the band's best material when choosing the other tracks for the compilation. But I guess to the masses these were their best known songs.

I definitely like the new songs on this album. It shows a different side of Toto in the R&B direction. Not that they never did R&B before but this is just more soulful than what they've ever done. This is number five of my favorite albums by the band. Number 1 is The Seventh One, 2 Fahrenheit, 3 Toto IV, 4 Falling In Between and 5 this album.

Buena selección de temas pero me quedo con el doble recopilatorio de TOTO aunque ésta me lo compré primero. Grande 'Georgy Porgy' pero 'I'll Be Over You' es mi favorita de siempre de los TOTO. 8.5/10

Como la mayoría de los recopilatorios, muchos grandes temas quedan fuera, y en su lugar tenemos 4 temas ineditos con el denostado Jean Michel Byron, 2 de ellos siendo magnificos temas y los otros 2, de lo pero que han hecho TOTO. ¿Como diantres se puede comenzar un recopilatorio con un tema tan malo como ese?, pues si, en este recopilatorio encontramos el PEOR TEMA de TOTO, que es 'Love Has The Power'(y para adobarla, nos la restregan al final de los creditos en el DVD Past to Present...

From: YIRO SEVENTH Date: August 20, 2007 at 21:14
o sea, te imaginas lo que es tener que soportar eso cuando terminas de ver el DVD?... el otro tema 'Animal' sin comentarios, aunque no tan malo como el anterior(bueno, eso era dificil de superar). Ahora, los otros 2 temas son otra cosa: 'Can You Hear What I´m Saying' tiene unas percusiones irresistibles, al igual que el ritmo que se carga el tema y 'Out Of Love' es una verdadera maravilla de balada con una interpretación magistral de Jean-Michel Byron, demostrando que el tipo si sabia cantar...

this is the greatest single toto cd you could own if you could only own one. It contains great cuts from IV and the seveth one... the great 'I'll be over you' from the dodgy Fahreheit, then you get great sound quality (The relevant songs sound just WAY better here than on their respective original cd releases). I LOVE this cd. And I hate the way people always crap on about Byron. He added a nice spice to Toto in his short time there. I'm not saying he belonged to lead this band but his songs are vital to this cd's enjoyment and he added a great flavour to toto's musical history in my opinion. Brilliant disc. Pick it up. 9.5/10

With this album/compilation i saw Toto live for the first time in my life at the Hammersmith Odeon in London England...they were "introducing" a new singer named Jean-Michel Byron,a guy with a good range of voice and with a big influence of Michael Jackson in the way he sings and dances(well at that stage Byron was like that)...in this release you have four songs sang by the "new guy on the mic" and very good ones btw("Love Has The Power","Can You Hear What I'm Saying","Animal" and the beautiful ballad "Out Of Love")plus some all time Toto's classic that we all know...a good one to have...100/100

From: ShadowAngel Date: March 23, 2013 at 15:03
A rather weak "Hits only" compilation. Only 9 classics can't do justice to that band By now there are better Best of Compilations of TOTO on the market. So the only interesting thing for fans are the additional 4 new songs. Jean-Michel Byron was a nightmare and everybody knows that. The new songs..Love has the Power was never a favourite of mine. Animal has a killer Bass-line by Mike and a great solo by Luke but that's about it. Can you hear what i'm saying is a pretty good song, would've been better with Joseph and Out of Love is just horrible, never liked that Luke decided to continue play that in concert. So a weak compilation and thankful Byron was kicked out of the band. Nothing else to say here.
