Today, we begin a multi-writer, song-by-song examination of the music of Chicago, and where better to launch than the aptly named “Introduction” from their debut release, ‘Chicago Transit Authority’?
“Make Believe” is one of the reasons I’m still longing for the day that Toto and Chicago tour together.
I’d argue ‘Hydra’ did more to establish Toto’s style and sound than their debut. The complex and entertaining “Lorraine” is exemplary of that.
“Angela,” a song of shifting moods and layered musical complexity, puts the exclamation point on Toto’s bold debut album.

The music on Toto’s “You Are the Flower” had always been more to my liking that the lyrics. Until I became a father. Then, I got it.
“Running Out of Time,” my ass. With ‘XIV,’ Toto has shown they’re not running out of time. In fact, they’ve gotten a second wind.
