William Ruhlmann ‘As a result, Toto IV was both the group’s comeback and its peak; it remains a definitive album of slick L.A. pop for the early ’80s and Toto’s best and most consistent record. Having made it, the members happily went back to sessions, where they helped write and record Michael Jackson’s Thriller. ‘
