The Boo Radleys: Giant Steps (Creation)

Paul Moody, New Musical Express, 1993

TIME FOR a rethink. At some point (just between the dreamy acoustic sway of ‘Wish I Was Skinny’ and ‘Leaves And Sand’ I think, but don’t quote me on it) things become remarkably clear. The Boo Radleys are on their way toward making a classic album. One of those rare treasures you find yourself putting on to shake off a bad day when normally only Pet Sounds or Revolver or even Bandwagonesque will do.
