 Hooray for the Boos! I feel ashamed that I sold all my Boos albums apart from Giant Steps now . . . Man, they were a great band. So easy to love, and such a shame more people didn't love them.

 As an introduction to The Boo’s magnificent talents and catalogue, Find The Way Out is excellent, and should tempt people to go searching for more. I hope. All this band needs is exposure because I think the music speaks for itself. Very nice review Nick, you did your homework or already knew of this band. Happen to agree with a lot of what you had to say especially the part where it's almost criminal that a song like "Bullfrog Green" was left off but the most glaring omission happens to be a song called "Put Your Arms Around Me and Tell Me Everything's Going To Be OK." It's funny because it seems that only the real hard-core fans love that Kingsize album. People say I'm crazy because I think it's their best showcasing more pain, emotions and insecurities than anything they had ever done. Lyrically it also showed Martin Carr at his very best, which was the Boos major strength.

 People laugh at me when i tell them that one of my all time fave records is a Boo Radley's one (Everything's Alright Forever). They tend to be of variety that only know them for Wake Up, which is a shame. Great band.
