Weak in the Presence of Beauty is the second and last album by English band Floy Joy. It was released in 1986, and featured the minor hit, "Weak in the Presence of Beauty". Unlike the previous album which featured Carroll Thompson on vocals, this album instead featured vocals from Desi Campbell, whilst both original member Michael Ward and new member Robert E. Clarke performed and wrote the music.

Following the band's 1984 debut album Into the Hot, which spawned two minor Top 100 single entries in the UK chart ("Until You Come Back to Me" and "Operator"), lead vocalist Carroll Thompson left the group, along with Shaun Ward. Michael Ward continued the group with Rob Clarke, and lead vocalist Desi Campbell, the latter who originally the unofficial backing vocalist and bongo player for the group. Together the new trio released one album in 1986 – Weak in the Presence of Beauty – which would also be the band's final album. In The Times, a Malta interview with Campbell saw the interviewer ask "Weak in the Presence of Beauty was a minor hit for you – but then, Alison Moyet covered it and it became a huge hit. Did you feel cheated?"

Floy Joy was an English group formed in Sheffield, England, who recorded two albums and had minor success with a small few singles.

The song was later covered by Alison Moyet which became a large European hit, including reaching the top 10 in the U. .The group split shortly after due to the commercial failure of the album.
