  1. Boo!, their first album for 16 years, is well up to the standard of classics such as "What Up Dog?" and "Are You Okay?"
  2. Mixing and matching funk, rock, and soul with a little jazz and blues, and enhanced on occasion by some seamlessly incorporated electronics, Boo! delivers robust party material with plenty of straight-faced, sidesplitting/head-scratching humor...precisely what you'd expect from them, then.
  3. The result is fun, easily listenable, entertaining and good material for weddings, 40th birthday parties and, for those of you who weren't there the first time round, any '80s theme party you might want to hold.
  4. Boo! can be enjoyed on a few different levels: You can listen to this work and simply dig all the fat, old school R&B musicianship.
  5. Uncut
    Boo! has plenty of highpoints. [May 2008, p.113]
  6. Mojo
    The best songs here more than compensate for the near misses. [May 2008, p.112]
  7. Q Magazine
    The world may have moved on but they haven't, so '80s funk backdrops merge with Sweet pea Atkinson and Sir Harry Bowen's classic soul vocals and some biting surreal lyrics. [May 2008, p.141]
