Toto XX

Toto XX: 1977-1997 is a compilation album by Toto to celebrate their 20th anniversary. The album features rare original demos, outtakes, previously unreleased recordings and live tracks from the band's 20-year career.

Although not technically a studio album, Toto XX is counted as being a part of the band's core catalog of albums. Thus, despite being their 13th studio album, Toto XIV was named as if it were their 14th album.[2]

Allmusic 2.5/5 stars [3]

Allmusic, not realizing that the album's nine studio tracks were all recorded nine years or more before its release, commented that "Essentially, this is a Toto reunion album, featuring nine new studio cuts and four live tracks[...]" and said that the material was similar to that on Tambu (then the band's most recent studio album). They praised the performances but concluded the release to be "not particularly interesting to anyone except hardcore fans".[3]
