If two albums can be said to define a genere, these two albums defenitly can, they defie West Coast rock, they defies the sound which Toto should perfectionise with their, Toto and Toto V,  the slick, polished, perfect production and perfect played jazz, sould, and blues filled west coast rock,

to me Aja and Silk Degrees are perfect albums, but which is best

I went to Aja, too. By the way, is what Larry Carlton steals introduction of Peg and applied in introduction of Room 335 true? Or is it a rumor?

I went of The DAN of course
 
"Silk Degrees" though is a fantastic album
 
When it came out everybody had it,  me included. Never got sick of it and it is one of those albums that everybody likes.
 
Good Poll. Not that easy to choose.

i sometimes call it the first Toto album Tongue, half the songs is cowriten by David Paich, and half the badn is Jeff, David and David, (and Steve Porcaro on synth on one song), and live they brought in Lukather, so it was actualy Toto if replace Bobby with Boz  as lead singe,

I don't think I've heard the Boz in it's entirety but I'm sure I've heard parts.

Have you heard "Dig". David Paich is all over that with Boz too. Great album. Will review it this morning. Came out in 2001. Has an appearance by Lukather and Phillinganes. Did not realise how much stuff they have done with Michael Jackson.
 
Nothing to do with Toto but Danny Kortchmar is with Boz, and David as well. They are the three main suspects on the album
 
Wondered why I liked that Boz album so much and after a bit of quick research, now I know why.

Human Nature is written by Steve Porcaro and could easly have ended up on a Toto record but the band did not like it so he send a tape to Quincy Jones, with two tracks when those tracks were finnished and left no impression and ten silence, suddenly Quincy and Michall heard the synths of Human Nature and their jaw dropped

"Human Nature" was written and composed by http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Porcaro" rel="nofollow - Steve Porcaro of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toto_%28band%29" rel="nofollow - Toto and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Bettis" rel="nofollow - John Bettis for Michael Jackson's http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thriller_%28album%29" rel="nofollow - Thriller album. Initially, Porcaro recorded a rough demo of the song on a cassette. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_Nature_%28Michael_Jackson_song%29#cite_note-halstead_144-0" rel="nofollow - [1] Fellow Toto band member http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Paich" rel="nofollow - David Paich then gave the demo, along with two songs written by Paich, to producer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quincy_Jones" rel="nofollow - Quincy Jones , hoping they would be included on Thriller. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_Nature_%28Michael_Jackson_song%29#cite_note-halstead_144-0" rel="nofollow - [1] Jones didn't like Paich's songs, but enjoyed the rough demo of "Human Nature" at the end of the cassette. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_Nature_%28Michael_Jackson_song%29#cite_note-halstead_144-0" rel="nofollow - [1] Jones explained, "All of a sudden, at the end, there was all this silence, there was: 'why, why, dah dah da-dum dah dah, why, why'. Just a dummy lyric and a very skeletal thing—I get goosebumps talking about it. I said, 'This is where we wanna go, because it's got such a wonderful flavor'".

It is like the who's who of music the list of who they have all played with.
Saw Lukather did the guitar on "Beat It" as well.
 
You never heard that much from Quincy after Michael Jackson's death. Everybody else seemed to be having their say though.
I am not an MJ fan but some stuff I don't mind and out of the three big ones it is "Bad" I like the best. "Dirty Diana, The Way You Make Me Feel and Smooth Criminal" are the ones that get a repeat.
 
The radio played "Thriller" to it's death. I remember, not being that big a fanLOL
 
The title is the one that grates the most but "Billie Jean", I did like which they seemed to play the least

I do like Aja but SIlk Degrees has something. The RnB aspect? Dunno but I give it the edge

the title track on the Toto album Kingdom of Desire is written by Danny Kortchmar as with two other songs on the album
unrelated to the poll but still it is Kortchmar related who is Boz related so its okey i guess

I like Boz okay but Aja is a masterpiece so this was a no-brainer.
