1981 Toto – Turn Back

Turn Back is the third studio album by the American rock group Toto. Although it achieved the band’s first top-ten hit and steady sales in Japan, the album was a commercial disappointment elsewhere, failing to produce any charting singles and selling approximately 900,000 copies worldwide.

In early 1981, Toto released their third album, Turn Back. The album was a venture into arena rock and featured heavier guitar and fewer keyboards than on the previous two records.
