The Boo Radley’s debut album, not revered by many. Weighing in at just under 30 minutes long, only 500 were released in 1990 on Action Label. Sounding very grungey and no suggestion of any influence from the 60s or Love, Forever Changes; which was a major part of the follow up Everything’s Alright Forever.
Kaleidoscope is probably the best track on here with shoegaze leanings. Sice’s vocals are at the forefront, which is very rare on this album. Walking 5th Carnival shows promise, but there is a really heavy guitar chorus that sounds quite sloppy. It is not as good as their later work, but well worth a listen.
