The Boys is the sixth album and first soundtrack album by Australian improvised music trio The Necks originally released on the Wild Sound/MDS label in 1998 and later rereleased on Fish of Milk. The album features music recorded for the Australian motion picture The Boys (1998). The All About Jazz review states that "The album would make a good start for those who want to get into these Australians' music, because it's made of smaller doses of the trio's traditional work."[2]
