Bare Faced Cheek

Artist: 
Toy Dolls
Format: 
CD
Rating: 
8

From here on out, Toys Dolls records and songs start to follow a pretty standard formula. While every release is guaranteed to have a couple of good songs, there are more and more clunkers in the mix. Bare Faced Cheek may feature one of the worst album covers ever, but it also features one of the Toy Dolls best songs, "Fisticuffs in Frederick Street." As for the rest of the album, "Ashbrooke Launderette" is good but tracks like "Howza Bouta Kiss Babe??!" are just too intentionally silly... well, at least more so than your usual Toy Dolls tune anyway.
