After the gritty "Kingdom of Desire", "Tambu" struck a good balance between Lukather's grumpy blues and the groovy R&B leanings of the now-classic debut. There's something for every Toto fan here. "I Will Remember" is a stark and haunting ode to a departed drummer. "Gift of Faith" would have fit well on "Kingdom". "The Turning Point" recalls "The Seventh One". I would say this is Toto's best work in the 90s.

A fantastic album, with great songwriting, possibly the bands most complete album as all the tracks are excellent. There is much more of a soulfull vibe on the album with heartfelt lyrics and very tastefull playing all the way through. Simon Phillips and Luke are on fire for this 13 track work of genius. Having sung its praises I would say that people looking for more pure aor might not enjoy this as much as other toto albums, though "Drag Him To The Roof" has a great chorus. Fantastic!!

No hay más reviews?Para mí este disco es especial,incluso dentro de la particular discografía de TOTO.Grupo difícilmente definible que consigue con"Tambu"un trabajo muy equilibrado que combina R&B y AOR-Westcoast con enormes dosis de emotividad.Técnicamente impecable además de ADICTIVO,una vez le"pilles el rollo"no podrás sacarlo del lector!Uno de los CDs que más he escuchado gracias a este encanto inexplicable.Vuelta a las raíces?En mi opinión,un gran álbum...de los'90. 8/10 run2u69@hotmail.com

From: giorgos-greece Date: July 15, 2004 at 11:13
Another quality creation from the experts of melodic rock.Kingdom of desire and mindfields may fit better to their mainstream listeners ,but "Tambu" is essential for Toto-regulars(like me). What a band...

From: TIM (2) Date: August 17, 2004 at 7:39
If you loved "Kingdom.." you'll love this too. I didn't, and don't. Although "I Will Remember" is killer, and "The Turning Point" and "Drag Him to the Roof" are pretty passable. Otherwise this is pretty pointless. 4/10.

From: Chevalier Date: August 17, 2004 at 10:27
I have to agree with TIM.I've been waiting for this album for years and when it came out it wasn't what i expected.Maybe i was missing Jeff Porcaro's grooves to much....still is a good album...some great tunes too Gift Of Faith,Dave's Gone Skiing,I Will Remember and Lukather's voice is just beautiful.It's just that they started to take that direction which will give the next albums that I don't appriciate so much.Perfect production anyway.

From: Lovedrive Date: May 21, 2005 at 13:18
No sé que tal debe estar el disco entero, pero "I Will Remember" es mágica. Q ganas tengo de escucharlo enterito

From: Lovedrive Date: August 5, 2005 at 8:29
Y por fin lo he escuchado! QUE DISCO MAS COJONUDO. Me ha encantado..tiene un sonido muy peculiar, con esos coros de "voces negras", los solos de Lukather (que se desmadra mucho en este disco y encima canta muy bien)..Paich como siempre aportando magia en cada canción y el batería Simon Phillips lo borda tambien, que gran trabajo...TOTO FOREVERRR!

From: ANR Date: March 6, 2007 at 9:22
Soft and elegant of course. Rock, blues, jazz, pop, soul mixture of music with it's finest. But I think you've got to have the "mood" to enjoy this recording though. My favourite track: "Slipped Away". 7/10

From: Carlos A. Date: August 18, 2007 at 11:14
Vaya con estos maestros...otro trabajo de buena factura, introspectivo, elegante y con un variado repertorio de estilos, "I Will Remember", "Slipped Away" entre mis preferidas... y eso que Lukather es "El cantante" (como lo fuera el valioso "Kingdom of Desire") influencias del R&B, coros con escuela soulera y claro ritmos tribales. No es mi favorito pero es un disco brillante.

From: ShadowAngel Date: March 23, 2013 at 15:18
Just like Kingdom of Desire this album was a surprise but not a positive one. While i do like RnB and all that this album never made much for me. The songs are long, some are boring and whats with the horrible drum machine on Baby he's your Man? Does a band with one of the most talented drummers really need to use the TR-808? Good songs are I Will Remember, The Road Goes On, The Tuning Point and Time is the Enemy. That's it, the rest is forgettable, Dave's gone Skiing is basically a rehash of Jake to the Bone and while Slipped Away starts out great it is destroyed by a horrible multi-layer chorus...ugh.

very good release by TOTO but not among their best ones!Tambu starts where the previous stopped but with more rnb elements especially in the vocals approach!as always the musicianship,production ,songwriting are of the highest level and of course it s a highly recommended release!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 29, 2015 at 17:11
First album without Jeff on drums and the "new man" Simon Phillips did an admirable effort..."Gift Of Faith" is my fave tracks...other fine moments are tracks 2(dedicated to Jeff Porcaro),4(nice),6(nice),7,8,9,10(nice) & 12(nice)...a typical Toto album with plenty of mid tempos and softies...a pleasant release to say the least.88/100
