AllMusic wrote: “The most refined of England’s bands manages to refine itself even further on their 4th disc. How ‘I Learned to Love the Bootboys’ is Luke Haines’ most immediate sounding release to date, and even though his claim that each of the record’s 12 tracks are singles sounds a bit highfalutin, he’s not far off… The cohesiveness of the record is no small feat, given the wide-ranging sounds and moods.” Score: 4.5/5 – Full review here.
TUTV: Haines designed 12 colorful stories, 12 affecting tunes, 12 compelling pop pearls.
Single/clip: The Rubettes (yes, the Sugar Baby Love group)
