Nice to see Toto featured in the latest issue of PROG. Rooted in Yes and Pink Floyd which goes a long way in explaining Hydra, Mindfields and the new one.

Background
Nice to see one of the mainstays from the Little River band (LRB) find his niche in the melodic rock world, and in true accomplished style too! Goble, along with stalwarts Beeb Birtles, Glenn Shorrock, Derek Pellici etc really was a rock icon in Australia for many years. With LRB's changing of the guard through the years, Goble moved his focus into production, and has so far released some rather great stuff while on his own. The LRB connection is quite strong with contributions from ex and current members. Goble released his 'Nautilus' album in 1993, and it was a great atmospheric slice of melodic rock, with well produced keys and programming, and vocals from the rather awesome Steve Wade. If you heard songs like 'Til Tonight', 'She Tells You.. You Tell Me', and 'You Never Cry' you'll understand the atmospheric tag. The tradition continues with this album 'Stop' released two years on (funnily enough on a German label). The style is pretty much the same as the predecessor album 'Nautilus', well crafted melodic rock with strong hi-tech influences and a hint of accoustic guitar coming through as well.


The Songs
Preceedings kick off with the AOR anthem 'Two Emotions', bringing back immediate memories of LRB circa 'Playing To Win'. Most awesome. In fact, LRB do their own version of this very song on their 1990 album 'Get Lucky'. Things funk up a bit in a hi-tech sort of way with 'Dressed To The Best'. Next up is the title track 'Stop', an AOR accoustic/organ flavoured workout. The harmony vocals on this song have to be heard to be believed! Steve Wade sings his proverbial a*** off on this one. Stunning to say the least. 'Please Don't Ask Me' heads off in a direction similar to Alfie Zappacosta's 'Quick Don't Ask Any Questions' album from 1991, a sort of modern AOR jazz number. It works though. We kick into hi-tech overdrive with 'Magic Time Frame', with drum machines keeping the high stepping beat together, while radio friendly AOR reappears in the form of 'For The Love Of You' and 'Wanted', the latter has a seventies feel to it, similar to early LRB material or Al Stewart and is quite nice though perhaps slightly out of sync with the rest of the album. We finish off with perhaps the most AOR track on the album, the pulsing 'Time And Eternity', where all the great names of melodic rock appear in the space of three minutes! Pick the comparions on this one!! You'll have a field day.


In Summary
Great production, strong and interesting songs, and that voice ... Just to note, Steve Wade has also sung with LRB.
