    Don't like it much. A few good tracks but not enough to get my wallet out!

    It's not their best album, but I don't think it is the worst either.

    I've listened to it a few times and Touch it is not. It isn't "biting" - if an album doesn't "bite", it is probably a bit sh*te in my book.

    It's more of a grower than Touch... However, spin it a few times and let the vibe sink in, then turn the volume up and the lights down low, and play 'Give You the World' (with the awesome Malia), through to 'Dark Side', and if that doesn't light up yer groovy buttons, then you're officially dead!

    'Electrified II' and 'Kiss the Cloud' are also great tracks. And get the vinyl version, which I have, as that improves the whole overall experience:

    Yepp, Marco is spot on, Toy is a grower! To me its a better album than Touch.
    And the vinyl sounds amazing!

    Of course the production is top notch care of Mr Boris Blank but its not a great album - Frautonium and Starlight Scene are good but not sure about the rest.

    Mmmm, interesting. I think I may have to listen to it before I buy instead of just buying it to feed my obsession with Yello music. Thanks for the guidance good sirs.

    Taken a long time for me to decide but after hearing kiss the cloud via digital sonic nirvana at Steves I ordered Toy on vinyl.
    Still 20 on Amazon. Don't want to leave it any longer, have you seen how much it would cost you to buy Convergence or Electrified on vinyl!!
