Keith Cameron, New Musical Express, 21 March 1992

And while The Boo Radley's stout-hearted self-opinion was a cheering presence in 1991's (complacen)sea of mumbles – not to mention their genius way with the dreaded EP format – one wondered whether the advance talk of a classic, timeless album wasn't just so much huff and puff from another bunch of English suburban dreamers attempting arias before they'd mastered the talking bit. But dudes, they were correct: Everything's Alright Forever is a righteous, fantabulous, Boo-dacious record.
