Bare Faced Cheek is the fourth full-length album by the Punk band Toy Dolls.

Lead singer and guitarist Michael Algar is not a fan of the album, recalling that "we've done a few poor records, but I would have to say that Bare Faced Cheek is the worst; it's awful. The sound was poor; my guitar was broken at the time so I had to use the engineer's guitar with a fuzz box thing... and I hate effects pedals! There is one good track on it though, "Yul Brynner Was a Skinhead"."[2]
