Truth was the fifth studio album by Swedish hard rock band Talisman released on 27 December 1998 by Point Music.

Marcel Jacob and Jeff Scott Soto wrote most of the material during ten days in Soto's new house in Los Angeles, after which the rest of the band (now including guitar player Pontus Norgren) joined up for a couple of weeks of rehearsals and recording of backing tracks. Drums were laid down in a small studio, and the rest was done in Soto's home studio. The mixing took place in Boston, by John Ellis.

The album was released by Point Music for Europe, and Pony Canyon in Japan. Once again there was no touring done for an album, due to the lack of interest by either label to promote the act. The album was not very well received in the press either. Despite this, there are some excellent tracks, not the least the cover of Madonna's "Frozen" which apparently became very popular in clubs throughout Europe.

"Let Me Entertain You" is a cover-version of (Queen)'s song, "Darling Nikki" a cover-version of Prince's song and "Frozen" a cover-version of Madonna's song.
