Customer Review

on 23 April 2002
Surely one of the albums of the year, and most likely one of the electronica albums of the decade. Beautiful and otherworldy, this can be a poignant and stirring album but also a harsh and austere album. Melodies seemingly plucked from the outer-atmosphere played on synthesizers sounding like they were constructed by martians. For some listeners, this is a highly impersonal album, but I think it can be a very personal album, not of the artists, but of the listener. Boards of Canada's music unlocks memories of your childhood and, more importantly, the fears and wonders you had when you were a child. Listen to it with the lights off with earphones, and you'll know what I mean. Hallucinogenic, nauseating, claustrophobic, gorgeous and outlandish, this is one of those few records than can take you to a whole other place for its duration and then make you want to repeat, repeat, repeat.
Stunning.
