why some Scottish guys are so enchanted about Canada...
The destiny made its step and I ended up living in Canada.
I love to take bus and put my headphones on.
Certainly,the greatest enlightment was listening this album,
being amazed how can this digital-electronical-synthetic stuff
get harmonized with Canadian landscape...but it does.
Maybe its my imagination.
But listening this EP brings back the greatest feeling;
being at home,with the Nature,in the Nature.
It is sad to think that scores of people will never experience the airy warmth of a song like Kid for Today simply because it doesn't sound like what is popular at the moment. I wish more artists took the time to make use of subtlety and high-quality production so effectively. In my opinion, Amo Bishop Roden is one of the best songs ever made. There is a combination of atmospheric ambience and perfectly restrained beats that is undeniable. The title track conjures up a community living in pastoral bliss, but is also a little unsettling. It is one of those songs that I felt was right under my nose my whole life, but I let it get away from me somehow. The last song, Zoetrope, isn't as emotional as the others, but is a very pretty, laid-back instrumental that makes for a perfect closer.
The complexity of their music along with the mysterious aura that they create is mindblowing. How can someone synthesize something so beautiful? I found it remarkable.
This music is very soothing after having a long, bad day, and you just need a rest. It is calming, and makes you think about past things. The beat is just enough to keep your pulse up, and it's quiet enough not to interrupt you while you think back. I found it great for driving at night, although I would not advise it if it's really late because my friend almost fell asleep listening to "Music Has the Right to Children" while driving home once.
Wonderfully done and fully worth the cost. It runs about 30 minutes and has very good tracks. I liked this better than "Geogaddi".

I absolutely adore Boards of Canada so this was a no-brainer. Love it!Published 4 months ago by David Gomez
Standout is the opening track, with its atmospheric chord changes and slide-projector click rhythm. An odd experimental finish with "Zoetrope," and odd is not a bad thing.Published 6 months ago by Lunar Railways
It's basically a single, with just 4 tracks total... But if you're a fan of Boards of Canada, you should absolutely have it. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Bill
Short but aesthetically wonderful four track 'Boards' cd punctuated by the wacko waco branch divadian inspired title track.Published 17 months ago by Reno V. Rapagnani
Zoetrope is absolutely my favorite track, it's beautiful, and it surprises me every time.
BoC's best track was a B-side, people.
another great release from BoC (and I am old enough to remember when that meant Blue Oyster Cult). Worth the purchase even if the title track is all I could have.Published on December 19, 2013 by Aovi
You have to give it to BOC when it comes to soundtracks to our lives. With the aural vibe of Kid For A Day, to the conceptual themes of two and three, to a light, bright, happy... Read morePublished on September 18, 2013 by Nathan Freeland
