Bare Faced Cheek is a rather uneven offering from punk comedians the Toy Dolls, proving that no amount of humor can make up for average songwriting. Despite their hilarious lyrics, tunes such as "Yul Brynner Was a Skinhead" and "How Do You Deal With Neal?" quickly fade from memory. And though singer/guitarist Olga and his ever-changing backup cast score a few winners with "Fisticuffs on Frederick Street" and "Howza Bouta Kiss Babe," it's far too little to make this album interesting to anyone but hardcore fans.
