Falling in Between is the 12th studio album (though counted as the 13th album overall - see Toto XIV) by American rock band, Toto. The album was released in February 2006 on the Italian label Frontiers Records, with a world tour to follow. It was the band's first studio release since Through the Looking Glass in 2002, and the first to include keyboardist/vocalist Greg Phillinganes. Phillinganes originally began playing with Toto as a touring replacement for David Paich, who had retired from the road. Another Porcaro brother, Steve, helped found the group and continues to work in the studio with the band, though he quit as a full-time member following the Fahrenheit album in 1987. Similarly, Lenny Castro has never been a member of the group, but has consistently contributed to their recordings since their first album, in 1978.
Allmusic's review of the album was generally derisive, accusing Toto of creating little more than imitations of other bands, claiming that they don't find their footing until halfway through, and even going so far as to describe the album as "a band trying to find itself during a midlife crisis." They did, however, praise Steve Lukather's lead vocals especially when compared to other vocalists of his generation. The review praises the sound of the band thanks to the "amazing production values" of the recordings and further states that some of the material favorably compares to Toto's best material.
