Love Is the Law is the fifth studio album by Toyah, released in October 1983. It was the last album to be released by the band before singer Toyah Willcox embarked on her solo career, though subsequent albums would still be released as "Toyah". The album reached No. 28 in the UK Albums Chart and included the Top 30 hit "Rebel Run". It was first released on CD in 2005, containing five additional bonus tracks. Willcox said the making of the album was the happiest period of her life.

Love is the Law’ is a saying I borrowed from the famous occultist Aleister Crowley. I was never a fan of what he represented, which was mainly dark, devious and debauched, but I thought the phrase ‘Love Is the Law’ was possibly one of the most beautiful to ever be uttered because it crosses every social and tribal divide. The making of this album was the happiest period of my life because in 1983 everything was going right.
