October 24, 2020: ONE WEEK REMAINING in the Annual Heavy Harmonies Donation Drive!

Donations stand at covering 63% of the site's annual expenses... so close and yet so far. The annual donation drive is what keeps the site free for everyone so that I'm only pestering you once a year rather than running ads year round.

If you are not in a position to contribute (which I fully understand), please disable your ad-blocker on heavyharmonies.com. When you click through any of the eBay links, if you buy something on eBay, Heavy Harmonies will get a tiny commission.

Donation buttons are shown below. There is a thread on the HH forum that explains the perks for donating at the $20 and $50 levels.

Thank you for supporting the Heavy Harmonies community!

-Dan

The debut, and an ideal calling card to what the Toto pastiche was, and would continue to be, all about. Red-blooded rockers like "I'll Supply The Love", "Hold the Line" and "Rockmaker" were interspersed with R&B flavors like "Georgy Porgy" and rolling ballads like "Angela". Toto would explore all these directions (and more) over the next two dozen years.

From: Desert Rat Date: August 31, 2002 at 20:23
"Hold the Line" kicked when released and still does, but most of the rest of this is just forgettable pop. They can play, and they can write songs, but the chemistry just isn't clicking for some reason. "Girl Goodbye" and "I'll Supply the Love" are the only other standout tracks.

From: Javier Date: August 16, 2003 at 14:42
Este disco, pese a ser el primero lo considero como uno de los mejores de TOTO, es mucho mejor que el segundo y tambien mejor que el tercero.La canción instrumental es buenísima.

From: Chris Date: September 30, 2003 at 13:34
I have heard many, many people regard this here debut as a classic. Well, i am a fairly big fan of this band, and have been for many years and in all honesty i feel that this is the bands weakest effort by a mile. Hold the line is of course the standout song on here, and thats pretty much it. I'll supply the love is not the song people say it is, and the likes of Georgy Porgy and You are the Flower are laughable nonsense. If you want Toto at their best then go for Isolation (it Rocks) this dont.

From: Biboker Date: November 11, 2003 at 18:10
Desde el momento que escuche Hold the line me quede enamorado de TOTO. Que clase...

From: robert Date: November 29, 2003 at 12:55
Vaya Genios!! empieza la leyenda del grupo mas romantico por excelencia!!! HOLD THE LINE!!!

From: PERU TOTO Date: March 16, 2004 at 14:08
QUE BUENA BANDA,UN BUEN DISCO,UN BUEN DEBUT,TOTO ES PARTE DEL ROCK CLASSICO.HOLD THE LINE TREMENDO TEMAZOOO.

From: quini Date: March 16, 2004 at 15:03
Si, si un gran disco con una gran cancion, pena q despues divagaran un poco, por q no se Hold the line

From: Chevalier Date: August 10, 2004 at 17:27
Great stuff.Not really comparable to the other releases,as a matter of fact doesn't really have anything to do with other efforts,still is a great album if u don't think about it as a rock album.Child's anthem it's really an anthem,I'll Supply the Love,Hold the Line,Georgy Porgy worth the album anyway.A must.

Classy debut and a one of my favourite Toto albums. 'Hold The Line' has always been a staple on fm radio and still is over 25 years later-a good song is a good song in my book, and there are plenty of those here, all immacuatley played and produced.

From: AOR freaky Date: February 4, 2005 at 13:35
Another agreement ! Their first and by far their best ! Hold The Line still makes me happy ! Nice to see it fully digitally remastered on jap import !

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: April 22, 2005 at 19:30
ESTE PRIMER DISCO DE TOTO ES EL QUE MAS ME GUSTA A MI. ME PARECE QUE AQUI EN ESTE PRIMER ALBUM DESPLIEGAN SU MUSICA EN FORMA MAS NATURAL, QUIZA UN SONIDO UN TANTO INMADURO CON TOQUES A LO CHICAGO O TENDIENDO AL JAZZ PERO EN GENERAL UN DISCO DE AOR ECLECTICO, MUY VARIADO. CHILD´S ANTHEM ES UN EXCELENTE INTRO INSTRUMENTAL DE GRAN CALIDAD MUSICAL, CON LA GUITARRA DE LUKATHER Y EL TECLADO DE PAICH COMPARTIENDO EL PROTAGONISMO DEL TEMA...

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: April 22, 2005 at 19:35
ASIMISMO, I´LL SUPPLY THE LOVE ES UN TEMA ALEGRE MAS ORIENTADO A LA RADIO CON UN EXCELENTE CORO, PEGADIZO EN DONDE DESTACAN LAS VOCALIZACIONES PUNZANTES Y ENERGICAS DE BOBBY KIMBALL;GEORGY PORGY, UNA CANCION ENTRE FUNKY Y R&B CON LUKATHER EN LAS VOCALES, BASTANTE AGRADABLE Y CON GRAN RITMO; MANUELA RUN, CON UN SONIDO DE ROCK ANDD ROLL MAS CLASICO; YOU´RE THE FLOWER, CON UN KIMBALL MAS APEGADO AL SOUL; GIRL GOOD BYE ES OTRA DE LAS EXCELENTES, CON UNA INSTRUMENTACION EMOCIONANTE Y DINAMICA

From: PODEROSO YIRO Date: April 22, 2005 at 19:39
TAKING IT BACK ES UNA BALADA CON UNA EJECUCION EXCELENTE Y AGRADABLE, QUIZA ALGO FALTA DE INGENIO PERO BUENA; ROCK MAKER ES OTRO ROCK AND ROLL CON UN RITMO MAS POPERO; ANGELA ES UNA BELLA BALADA CON RITMO DE MEDIO TIEMPO, EXCELENTE Y DEJO PARA EL FINAL HOLD THE LINE, UN CLASICO TOTAL DE TOTO, UNA DE SUS MAS GRANDES GEMAS CON UN SONIDO PODEROSO Y HARD ROCKERO POTENTE, CON EXCELENTES GUITARREOS DE LUKATHER Y KIMBALL GRANDIOSO EN LA INTERPRETACION...MAGNIFICO DEBUT!!!

From: victordeaor Date: September 16, 2005 at 9:04
Solo un 7,12 para uno de los discos imprescindibles del genero??? Si bien es dificil decantarme por un disco de toto, lo hago por este. Esta lleno de sentimiento y buen gusto, a mi parecer los mejores temas son Hold the Line (como no!!!), Child's anthem, Manuela Run, Rockmaker... Sin duda un disco impresionante. Saludos desde Barna.

From: SCANDI Date: March 16, 2006 at 18:46
I think about buying some stuff from TOTO for the extraordinaire track "Hold the line" only. Listen to the intro & hooks of that song, they're maybe soooo simple but thus great --However, if I do so, I have to buy some of the Greatest Hits albums 'cos I'm not into that "hard rock's baby days" music. But that song is amazing!!!!!

From: Real rock fan Date: December 9, 2008 at 13:52
Great debut album from a great band! The last 2 tracks are classics and the rest are pretty good too!

From: hair metal again Date: April 7, 2015 at 2:06
TOTO s debut is a milestone in the history of rock and a very special and unique one!everything in it is hilarious and flawless and if you dont own it go & grab it asap
