The Changeling was Toyah's follow-up album to the critically acclaimed Anthem. Although it has a similar overall sound, the band's writing took a darker, almost gothic direction. Tracks such as The Packt and Brave New World take a rather dystopian although still hopeful view of the future, a theme which largely pervades the whole album. The Changeling was not released on CD until 1999, although this long-awaited release did at least include six bonus tracks, four of which were previously unavailable on CD, and the video for Thunder In The Moun read more.

The Changeling was Toyah's defiant follow up to the previous year's massively successful Anthem album. Rather than cashing in on her new found success and making a forgettable follow up in an attempt to retain her new audience, Toyah delivered a surprisingly dark and interesting album. The Changeling opens with the rather odd 'Creepy Room', followed by the very catchy 'Street Creature'. The Changeling was remastered entirely from original studio master tapes in the HDCD format. And while the sound is very good, it is a bit loud and compressed, but not near as bad as what's becoming the norm. Read more. 2019 сингл Radio Mix. In the Court of the Crimson Queen. The Changeling.
