The Troll - Animated Music CD (Radioactive)

Released in 1968 on Mercury offshoot Smash (home of the Walker Brothers and Jerry Lee), these freaky Dunwich stable Chicagoans are much better playing it poppy-straight ala the American Breed (“Everybody's Child”) than when trying to out-psych the weirdo Brits, though there's inevitably some goofball pleasure in silliness like “Professor Pott's Pornographic Projector” and the surprisingly tuff “Werewolf and Witchbreath.” -Kim Cooper
