One of my favorites!,
This review is from: Music Has the Right to Children (Audio CD)
Once in awhile an artist(s) comes along and their music is so original in such a subtle way that you can't even begin to imagine what other artists or types of music might influence them. Much like Pink Floyd and (arguably) Tool, there's never really been anything quite like them before or since and you can't put your finger on what makes them sound that way, yet they accomplish the amazing feat with every song they write.
I definetely think that this could be said for Boards of Canada. They simply seem to know something about both music and life that the rest of the world hasn't realized yet. Even though at first the music might seem to be anything but mindblowing, after a few listens it definetely grows on you and subconsciously takes you to places that no other music will.
The funny thing is that the song titles imply that they are very aware of what they are doing, which is all the more stunning.
Make sure you check out their more obscure stuff like the Hi Scores EP and "beautiful place out in the country"
