Toyah, "Prostitute" / 1988 Review by: paul johnson

This album is perhaps one of the more obscure of Toyah's albums. Co written by Toyah and Steve Sidelync. It is unusual in that no singles were released, it allows Prostitute to be heard it its entitity.

The tracks are short, Hello ( 1.20 mins) Homecraft (2.02 mins) The Show (2.45 mins). This allows each to make a individual impact whilst a familiar theme runs through the length of the record.

Strange lyrics are contained within, for me Jazz Singers In The Trees, Vale Of Evesham and Ghost In The Universe are the tracks that make the album.

The entire album is unique, and in my opinion, Prostitute is the best Toyah album available.
