British alt pop outfit THE BOO RADLEYS released their third album WAKE UP! today
25 years ago, on 27 March 1995 via Alan McGee‘s notorious label Creation Records. Their greatest commercial success as the LP hit Number One in the UK. Their top ten single Wake Up Boo! was co-responsible for the longplayer’s triumph.
AllMusic wrote: With their third album, The Boo Radleys abandoned the overt noise that obscured the pop sensibilities of their early work and scaled back the ambitions of Giant Steps. The result is Wake Up!, a glorious, brightly colored gem of a pop record… The Boo Radleys were always a band with ambitions. The only difference with Wake Up! is that they finally fulfilled them.” Full review here. Score: 4.5/5
