One to One is the third album by British pop singer Howard Jones. It was released in October 1986. The CD release also contains the single version of "No One Is to Blame" (a song featured on his previous album) with Phil Collins on drums and backing vocals. The album contains the hits "You Know I Love You...Don't You?" (US top twenty) and "All I Want" (top 40 in many European countries). The album reached number 10 in the UK.
The Rolling Stone Album Guide wrote that "Jones's songs take on a reflective cast, which neither helps their melodies nor enhances his singing." Trouser Press wrote that "the once-colorful elf has become part of a mainstream adult pop enterprise."
