Gilt is an album by Machines of Loving Grace, released in 1995.[4][5]

The cover image was based upon a photograph taken by Robert Wiles in 1947 of Evelyn McHale, who had leapt to her death from the observation deck of the Empire State Building.

Critical reception[edit]

Trouser Press called Gilt "a garish noise-powered album less tiresomely dependent on keyboards than the first two."[6] AllMusic wrote that "great production helps the rhythm hit you right in the chest, and what Gilt lacks in song variety, it makes up for in consistency of quality."[3]
