Format: Audio CD
This album saw ex-Martin Stephenson and The Daintees members Martin Yule and Gary Dunn reunited, and together they added a noticeable lustre to proceedings.

The explosive 'She's A Leech' is a triumph of everything fabulous about the Toy Dolls, a breakneck speed song of four chord screaming guitar hooks, thundering drums and a football chant chorus.

Vying for top place as the outstanding track of the album - and a real surprise package - however is 'She'll Be Back With Keith Someday', for once a serious song about broken hearts from a trio best known for their levity. With any other line up possibly this wouldn't have worked, but Marty and Gary's note perfect harmonisation works perfectly with Olga's embittered shrill voice to create what could have become the band's second mainstream UK hit had it been given a chance.

The reason of the album is atypical Toy Dolls punk meets 70s glam meets classical or anything else that takes Olga's fancy, married to him poking fun at luvvy actors ('Fred Olivier'), swingers ('Bored Housewife'), computer nerds and Olga's ever permenant gripes about people getting married and turning promptly into domestic bores.

The cover of '500 Miles' wasn't one of their better ideas, but the cover of 'The Devil Went Down To Georgia' (with piano from Danny of The Wildhearts) is a knockout that rightly went viral on YouTube when married to a cartoon.

Toy Dolls head cheese Michael 'Olga' Algar doesn't think much of this album. He doesn't think much of most of his albums. Neither do the music media in the UK. Forever cursed with the 'Nellie The Elephant' tag, Olga's demented weasel vocals (think Norman Wisdom on Helium) also never enamoured him to the maschismo poseurs of the Joe Strummer and Watty end of the punk movement.

Great music, typical Toy Dolls style! 15 Sep 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The songs on this CD are very smart. Everyone, who loves the Toy Dolls will like this CD. Olga is a phantastic guitar player, so if you like sophisticated and technically precisely played solos, you should definitifely buy this album!

Good later Toy Dolls record 28 Mar 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This disc is much better than their previous few. Olga and the gang continue with a heavier sound than on their earlier records. Excellent sing-along power pop/punk!
If you love Punk... 19 Feb 2002

You will love this album. The Toy Dolls are one o the more amusing, creative, and crazy punk bands around. The lead singer has always sounded like he overdosed on helium...hard to believe, I know.
I have been listening to these guys for over a decade now, and I never get tired of them.
This album is worth the money just for the song: "I'M Gonna Be 500 Miles"
A REAL PUNK ROCK CLASSIC FROM 1997 5 July 2014
By Edward J. mccarthy Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
i felt this was the last great album the toy dolls did back in 1997, there best album in the 90s was ORCHESTRATED wich was released 2 years before this one in 1995, regardless this was an amazing record considering most punk bands where trying to become sell outs like rancid, green day and all that other crap when it became cool and chic to be into punk ( ya know kind of like these hipsters as they are called post 2000) the toy dolls stuck to there roots as best they could and this band stayed true to punk and to this day and for the last 35 years have been a REAL PUNK BAND im a fan now almost 30 years and i would love to see these guys again but the focus here is on this cd, i strongly feel if you liked there 80s stuff you will love this album as well, another overlooked toy dolls album is fat bobs feet from 1991..................
