Originally released in November 1983, this Top 20 album was Toyah?s last album for the indie label Safari before signing to CBS. Featuring the hit singles 'Rebel Run' and The Vow', this CD issue adds the big non-album hit 'Be Loud, Be Proud (Be Heard)' for the first time. The remaining bonus tracks were singles b-sides, and all appear on the CD for the first time. Annotated by an acknowledged Toyah authority. Edsel. 2005.
A very good Toyah album (more like 3 1/2 stars)

"The original Love is the Law consists of the first 10 tracks on this CD, with the additional tracks being bonus materials. This album parallels Anthem, with a mixture of truly marvelous mid-slow tempo pieces (Broken Diamonds, and the astounding Martian Cowboy (with its sci-fi romantic leanings)) and harder stuff like Rebel Run. The production on LITL lacks some of the multi-layering and quirky Toyah-isms of previous outings, leaning more toward pop-rock (with drum machine backgrounds). The Vow ends the original LITL, a lovely lush throwback ballad that has some of the old magic back.
So, what's missing? Toyah's intensity and inventiveness isn't up to her previous releases. The cover art makes her look rather manish.
In Summary: If you want a more mellow outing and are generally a Toyah fan, you'll probably like this, too."
