I lent this CD to my boyfriend and now his car stereo refuses to give it back. So there you have it - even Swedish cars like Boards of Canada.

If you own their previous albums you'll want to get this one too; and if you don't, Campfire Headphase is just as good a place to start as any other. I was renting a CD from the library the other day, and when I told the muso behind the counter that I actually thought Campfire Headphase was better than Music has the Right to Children he acted like I'd just confessed to secret fantasies about having sex with glove puppets or something. I'm not a BoC fanatic, just a fan. Music has the Right is great too, but Campfire Headphase just happens to do it for me on a personal level. It's sweeter and more melodic - music to wake up to, fall asleep to, make love to, even break up to... pretty much everything, in fact, except dance to.

I get to listen to it now and again on car journeys, when my boyfriend's forgotten his iPod, and it's like remembering a really cool dream you had once, where everything was Technicolor or you finally got to snog the boy you fancied, or suddenly realised you could fly... It's not like reality: it's better than that. A few people have mentioned stand-out tracks, and I too like Peacock Tail... and Dayvan Cowboy, Sherbet Head, Tears from the Compound Eye... Oh God, I love them all, really! The only one that doesn't do it for me is Oscar See Through Red Eye, and of course some of the song titles are a bit loony but that's not necessarily a criticism. They make the best covers too; the artwork is outstanding, and predisposes you to like the music before you've even heard it. I'm not really sure what a 'campfire headphase' is... but it kind of describes the buzz I get every time I hear this amazing album. They ought to make it compulsory listening - the world would be a nicer place.

Boards of Canada are one of those very rare acts that come along once in a while with a sound so polarised, so outside everything else, that they've practically invented a new genre of their own. Think of the influence that the likes of Beefheart, My Bloody Valentine, Brian Eno, The Velvet Underground or Aphex Twin have had on their respective genres, and you start to get an idea of the impact this Scottish duo have had on the electronica scene over the past ten years.

'The Campfire Headphase' surprised fans with the sudden and unexpected use of guitar sounds on this, their third 'proper' album. BOC are well-known for their unmistakable analogue drones and science-programme jingles, which are present here in the gorgeously wonky tracks like '84 Pontiac Dream' and 'Oscar See Through Red Eye', but now the sounds are augmented by squelchy percussion and what sounds like a broken electric guitar with half of its strings missing. In fact the stand-out tracks for this reviewer are two of the most heavily guitar-oriented; The wonderfully lysergic 'Satellite Anthem Icarus' and the epic sci-fi western (as the band put it) 'Dayvan Cowboy', with its shuddering tremolo guitar and thunderous cymbal crashing climax.

The result is a strange new angle on the 'BOC' sound, part introspective synth ambience, and part seventies library music band in a jam session. In fact, the retro element is a key to the focus of this album's intent. Occasionally a poorly-informed reviewer, usually new to Boards of Canada, attempts to criticise their music with remarks about their 'cheesy 70s synth sounds', when in fact this is an unwitting compliment to BOC. As if the band's name, (which derives from the 1970s TV documentaries of the National Film Board of Canada), isn't a big enough clue.

The Campfire Headphase is a beautiful, strange and psychedelic reminder of the emotional potential of instrumental electronica. Recommended.

I've been a huge fan of Boards of Canada since first hearing Music has the right to children back in 1998 & I've enjoyed everything the Board's have put out since then. There has been a lot of Comparisons drawn up between BoC releases as each one has appeared. The classic comparison is usually between MHTRTC & the follow up album, Geogaddi where the prevailing view seems to be that it's not up to the standard of the first album. Personally I thought Geogaddi was every bit as good as MHTRTC but it did do things a little differently. It had all the typical BoC melodies, Distorted but warm sounds, beats, obscure & hugely intriguing vocal snippets, etc. It was different but it was still BoC through & through.
I feel much the same about Campfire Headphase. Again things are a little different but it's still unmistakably Boards of Canada. This time round BoC seem to have dropped the deliberately mysterious moments & 'Easter eggs' of Geogaddi (which caused much debate) and just let the music do the talking! In this respect it's probably closer to MHTRTC than Geogaddi. BoC have also used a fair amount of guitar on this album. Both acoustic & electric but in both cases these sounds seem to have been subject to much tinkering & manipulation - you'd expect no less from the Boards. It's their ability to shape the sounds they use & inject their own unique quality that has given them their sound & reputation.
Unfortunately it's this reputation that blights BoC somewhat now as people expect a lot of them. I guess this happens with all bands/artists that put out landmark albums - every subsequent release is expected to be equally as groundbreaking.
