Domino is a 1998 album by the British new wave group Squeeze. It was the band's twelfth studio album. After a career struggling with various major record labels, the band decided to record and release Domino independently, on Glenn Tilbrook's own Quixotic Records. Core members Tilbrook and Chris Difford were joined by three brand new Squeeze members for this album: drummer Ashley Soan, bassist Hilaire Penda, and keyboardist Christopher Holland (Jools's younger brother).

The album was hastily made, and received negative reactions from critics.[1] Difford and Tilbrook have both since denounced Domino as a weak effort, marred by time constraints and increasing friction between the two songwriters.[2] Difford chose not to join a 1999 tour due to concerns related to his history of alcoholism,[3], after which Squeeze disbanded.[4] The album did not appear in the UK Albums Chart; their first to fail to do so.[5]
