4 stars The music of Kevin Ayers is I suppose is an acquired taste, but deep within his music emerges for me a real sense of genius and creativity! "Joy Of A Toy" is where it all started and musically portrays a complex yet child-like vision that only Ayers could pull off. Canterbury fans will be interested in the fact that Soft Machine's Robert Wyatt, Mike Rattledge and Hugh Hopper are key musician contributors. David Bedford and Floyd's Syd Barrett also contribute to this masterpiece. "Joy" is a delicate album really with a nice melancholy feeling and temporal aspects few albums in history have captured. Musically Kevin Ayers is a mix of Nick Drake, early Pink Floyd and throw in some psych and folk leanings and you pretty much have it.
