Album of the Day

Toy Matinee, by Toy Matinee (1990): Toy Matinee was a collaboration between Patrick Leonard and the insanely talented Kevin Gilbert, although I have a hard time figuring out exactly what Leonard's contribution really was. Gilbert's supreme song writing and warped lyrical perspective are all over this album. With an assist from producer-collaborator Bill Bottrell (who worked with Gilbert on the equally brilliant Thud), Gilbert created a sophisticated pop masterpiece. Highly recommended, if you can find it.
