The Seventh One is the seventh studio album by the American rock band Toto. It was released inand became the best-received Toto album since Toto IV. The title track, "The Seventh One," is only featured on the Japanese version of the album and on the B-side of the single "Pamela".
It was also released on some compilations on a later date. Steve Lukather described the writing of The Seventh One as a period of prolific "one-upmanship" with the Its A Feeling - Toto - Toto IV + The Seventh One trying to impress one another with their compositions. Lukather considers the song to be one of his best compositions. Joseph Williams' influence on the album extended well beyond his strong vocals, with co-writing credit on six of the eleven tracks.
The producer of The Seventh OneGeorge Massenburg felt the album was missing a "rocker," which led to the composition and recording of the seven-minute closing track, "Home of the Brave. During the recording of The Seventh Onekeyboardist Steve Porcaro announced he was leaving the band.
His decision to leave was partly influenced by his belief his contributions were not well represented in the band's music and a general feeling of being unappreciated. Porcaro was also noted to be unhappy with the level of drug and alcohol use in the band at the time. By its conclusion, Toto, as well as Columbia Recordsbelieved The Seventh One was one of the band's strongest albums. The first single, "Pamela," was heavily promoted by Columbia.
However, shortly after its release, the president of Columbia, Al Teller, left the label. In his absence, the promotion of "Pamela" waned and it stalled at number 22 on the Billboard Hot and quickly I Dont Know - The Sewergrooves - Songs From The Sewer off the chart.
In Europe, "Stop Loving You" was the Its A Feeling - Toto - Toto IV + The Seventh One first single where it reached the top ten in several countries. While Joseph Williams' vocals were not a point of contention during the Fahrenheit tour, he struggled with his vocals during the European tour, likely as a result of substance use.
