The Seventh One is Toto's seventh studio album. It was released in 1988, and became the best-received Toto album since Toto IV. This is the second and last album to feature Joseph Williams on lead vocals. He was fired after the Seventh One world tour due to loss of voice attributed to drug abuse. The single "Pamela" reached number 22 in the Billboard charts. The title track, "The Seventh One," is only featured on the Japanese version of the album and on the b-side of the "Pamela" single. It was also released on some compilations on a later date.
Though critically well-received, The Seventh One was the first Toto album since Turn Back to have less than two charting hits. According to Allmusic, it was a combination of this fact and the "anonymous" sound of the album's songs which led to The Seventh One becoming the lowest charting Toto album on the Billboard Charts up to that point.
Only available on Japanese copies of the album.
