Turn back is the most unpopular Toto album. The band is clearly searching for their own distinctive sound. Steve Lukather presented for the first time his own written song Live for today. He only succeeded this twice with I won’t hold you back on IV and How does it feel on Isolation. On the rest of the “Lukather” songs in the Toto repertoire Luke appears as a co-writer. Read more on this subject in the essay on this website.

Toto went from disappointment to disaster with its third album, the generic Turn Back. The group’s ability to turn out highly competent studio rock was not translating into an individual sound, and since Turn Back had no memorable songs on it, one was left with nothing more than those famous chops that Toto possessed in abundance. The group would rally from this retreat, but for the moment a better title would have been Fall Back, as in, the bandmembers always had their studio jobs to fall back on. – William Ruhlmann
