"Wake Up! is The Boo Radleys Happiest :) album! Bubbly pop in these twelve solid tracks. It also contains their Biggest and most successful hit single, the Opener Wake Up Boo! A Summer-sun shinin' pop delight with catchy sing-along lyrics:
"Wake Up - it's a Beautiful Morning
Feel the Sun shining right before your eyes,
Wake up it's so Beautiful
For what could be the very last time."
The next song on Wake Up! is "Fairfax Scene" - a much slower comedown after the vibrant opener and a soft bridge between songs 1 & 3, because next is another fast paced song - "It's Lulu" featuring Loud Trumpets, hand claps and heavy drum pounding!
My favorite song on this is "Reaching Out From Here" :
"And it looks like another rainy day
Sitting here lonely by my window
Waiting for you to come on home..."
Simple lyrics, but Fun and to the point.
Wake Up! - Although not my favorite by The Boo Radleys, it is their most up-beat and fun. It's also a Great way to start your Morning off right!"
The 90's lost band

""Wake Up"marks the point at which Martin Carr let his tunes become accessible putting aside most of the band's shoegazing sonics(which nonetheless expand their sound considerably beyond any of their peers)and drenching the songs with some sunny Beach Boys/Big Star harmonies that made them more easily enjoyable.
And you can't mess with that opener the great "Wake up Boo!"."
A Great introduction

"The Boo Radleys are simply one of the best bands of the 90's bar none."
