5.0 out of 5 stars a beautiful place emerges wherever you listen to this, 10 Jan. 2007
This review is from: In a Beautiful Place Out in the Country (Audio CD)
This EP offering from the Boards is a true masterpiece, the first three tracks blend into each other perfectly, each one reinforcing the presence of the last. Starting with 'kid for today' the recurring theme of childhood in the Board of Canada's work is ever present, as is the perfect timing and wonderful bass sound we have come to expect. Moving to 'Amo Bishop Roden', arguably one of the best electronica tracks ever recorded. The track flows until you are hit with two deep pulses followed by another pair which then repeat throughout the remainder and this combined with the slow movement of lift and descent creates something that truly enters your soul! Title track follows, and here you are confronted with the paradox that exists in much of the Boards work, asking 'is it sinister or joyful?' That is a matter for the listener, I prefer to listen to it to take me to joy and beauty. The childrens' laughter the ambience of the track, the bass all collude to create a utopian vision. The last 'Zoetrope' is almost superfluous as you will want to repeat the first three tracks again and again. Jes
