''Through the Looking Glass'' is the eleventh studio album (though counted as the 12th album overall — see ''Toto XIV'') by the American band Toto. It was released in 2002, three years after their last studio release, ''Mindfields''. The album consists of cover versions of songs that have inspired the band. And these were also the final cover songs that the band has featured keyboardist/vocalist David Paich before his semi-retirement from the band three years later until his return in 2010.

Reception

AllMusic noted that Toto made no attempt to rework the songs they covered for the album, and concluded that "while it's nice to know that the band has good taste in other people's music, that doesn't explain why anyone needs to hear them copy that music when the originals are so readily available."
