"Perhaps the only album in three years (since 2010's Gorillaz Plastic Beach) that I waited and anticipated for to buy at first release and on hard copy. Scottish electronic music duo bring back their experimental and moody flair with Tomorrow's Harvest, a collection of 17 pieces complementing much of their nostalgic, analogue-sounding cues with more high-definition sound and menace.

The album takes much more a Geogaddi direction in its sound design and mood than Campfire Headphase (which is phenomenal in case the haters deny) and Music Has the Right... At first a hard one to try and grasp as the album acted a bit sluggish and compromising at the beginning, the second try at listening to it was a bit more rewarding which is why I did not automatically give it a 5-star review. Issues of immediacy and variety did arise in the beginning as I heard this album. The beginning with the recently known and very sci-fi-like Reach for the Dead did not kick-start with much surprise or intrigue as An Eagle in Your Mind or Chromakey Dreamcoat (the first ever BoC song I ever heard, in truth).

As I got grasp of much of their signature elements and the funky-psychedelic rhythms, then I started developing my already obsessive interest of the album.

wonderfully composed and thought out pieces from one of my favourite bands of all time. I'm already having "Everything you do is a balloon" played at my funeral, albeit for some time yet. The campfire headphase went slightly more acoustic for their last outing which was fine and is nice to experiment with your sounds. However, this instantly feels more like the Classic BOC sounds which are what they do best. I don't know what the people who gave it less stars who claim to be long standing fans are going on about? It's a Boards of canada album so it is going to sound like Boards of canada. They certainly have a distinct sound and this album seems to have heavier percussion on many of the tracks. I also noticed lots of more subtler melodies and rhythms on other songs. Like a fine cheese this matures excellently with age and more listens actually improves the whole experience. You can tell they have deliberately although quite subtly put lots of hidden messages in the album, some of which I may be starting to understand. At the end of the day though these amazing musicians have been and will continue create wonderful, timeless and amazing music. Boards has and will continue to be a wonderful soundtrack to my life and many others. Thank you.

I've been a Boards of Canada fan for almost fifteen years now, have all their output, and I've waited a long time to review this album. That is not a reflection on it's quality, merely that I have come to consider this their most profound album to date and it's taken me a while to realise this. There has been a clear progression with this album, away from the nostalgia-laden tracks of their early work and into a more progressive, mature, serious, and altogether darker aural landscape, one that befits their years of development and contemplation.

Several of the tracks on here are somewhat abrasive but are complimented by others that are simply transcendent and soar beautifully across a terrain of abandoned machinery, dying circuitry and the final breath of the human-machine interface. The album has at its essence a sense of foreboding that I find deeply affecting, a portent of things to come.

Magnificent.

It just about works as background music, but if for you, as for me, MHTRTC and the early EPs shifted your whole perception of what music could aspire to it simply doesn't cut the mustard. But let's be fair - which artists do manage to sustain that level of genius 15 years on? The biggest problem for me is that they don't work hard enough to earn the sense of awe that the tracks are trying to achieve. Most of the tracks start with a nice enough synth pad, the trademark BOC beats amble in, and just as you are expecting things to get interesting the track fades out. The classic old school BOC tracks were actually compositions - and crucially they had an element of surprise at around the 3 to 4 minute mark which was like sunlight and a rainbow breaking through the clouds. Especially noticeable is the decline in BOC's drum programming - they used to be deeply weird, with all sorts of sounds being used and now they sound distinctly off-the-peg. I know they wanted to get a zombie flick vibe for this album, and it works to some extent, but the results are fairly drab. Maybe they should spend less time planning promotional gimmicks and focus more on the music?
