5.0 out of 5 stars
Truly a work of art & a good foothold for new BoC listeners, 27 Jan 2005
My first BoC album bought around July last year along with Music Has The Right To Children, recommended by a friend. The latter being also a great album but Geogaddi has by far grasped my attention. It features a great number of tracks with short "interlude" tracks beautifully transitioning between the longer tracks.
Boards Of Canada is quite a unique musical style (bears a resemblance to Electroacoustic style composition and synthesized but calm Dance in some tracks) which may not appeal to some people but it does overall have a great relaxing, easy going feel and even though some tracks feature quite a lot of activity in the background this blends itself effectively into the whole atmosphere of the piece whilst not giving the track a rushed appearance (as high activity over short periods can very frequently do).
My particular favourites on this album are Sunshine Recorder and Beach At Redpoint, which has an excellent setting and some great timbres and rhythms but even then the majority of the remaining tracks are all still superb listening and are rated just as highly.
