If you're not a diehard collector, this EP is probably not for you. "Wake Up Boo!" is readily available on other EPs and, of course, the Wake Up! LP. There is something to be said for "...And Tomorrow the World," but it's only one song, another one of those Boo Radleys songs where numerous songs seem to meld together. From the beautiful, a cappella intro, it takes off into a number of song vignettes. Each has its own charm and most end before you are really done enjoying them. Patience is definitely required to get through "History of Creation Parts 17 & 36"; basically, it has some interesting soundbites of interviews done with the band in regards to their record label. Many of the voices have been altered and some clips are repeated in an attempt to make it more interesting; it's difficult to tell if the experiment worked or not.
