Well,I've become BOC fan back in Europe,and wandered
why some Scottish guys are so enchanted about Canada...
The destiny made its step and I ended up living in Canada.
I love to take bus and put my headphones on.
Certainly,the greatest enlightment was listening this album,
being amazed how can this digital-electronical-synthetic stuff
get harmonized with Canadian landscape...but it does.
Maybe its my imagination.
But listening this EP brings back the greatest feeling;
being at home,with the Nature,in the Nature.

While this EP is extremely lovely, it failed to floor me in the way that past efforts have. Still, as you can see from my four star rating, it not bad by any means! I just must admit that 'Amo Bishop Roden' and the title track tend to bore me just a bit. Yeah, I dig the branch davidian references that were elaborated upon in 'Geogaddi,' but these two tracks, while quite beautiful, just get annoying after a couple of minutes, sorry. I feel sacriligious saying that. 'Kid for Today' is magnificent however, as the trademark grainy atmospheres lay the foundation for further melodic exploration. Wonderful.. Still, the main reason I feel the need to add this gratuitous review to the myriad of preexistant ones is the mixed feelings toward the last track 'Zoetrope'. Many seem to write this off as 'filler,' which astounds me. This is easily the most beautiful, creative track on the CD and is evocative of so many gorgeous feelings. Labeling this as filler or a tack-on track to me is missing the point of Boards of Canada and the scene they represent. Filler is a corporate, moneymaking, insidious tactic of large business-driven record labels who have no regard for artistic vision.. It is, for the most part, totally contrary to the philosophy of BoC and IDM in general. They are not about making an extra buck or filling up the record.. and unless they have me conned really well, they would never tack on anything that wasn't absolutely essential to what they are trying to accomplish in that particular release. I feel that IDM as a whole is very good about keeping it real. That being said, I think that 'Zoetrope' is absolutely necessary to the record and completes it beautifully. If you are new to Boards of Canada, though, pick up their debut LP 'Music Has the Right to Children' or the fascinating 'Hi Scores' EP.

I love Boards of Canada to death... I think they are the best electronic group around, and one of my favorite groups in general... I just bought this today, but I've had the MP3's for a while, and I think this is their most perfect release... each song is amazing, and it's so damn emotional and beautiful... I absolutely adore Music has the Right to Children, and Geogaddi, but this one is just perfect for it's whole length... it's not their best, because I don't want to pick a four song ep as their best, but it's their most perfect...
Kid For Today: This one has such a laid back groove... the percussion throughout the song is very interesting, and goes through many subtle changes... the synth lines however make this song so damn gorgeous!!!
Amo Bishop Roden: This is one of my favorite Boards of Canada songs ever... it starts with a couple chords led by the most hypnotic synth sound you are likely to ever hear, which play for the entire song, and on top of these chords other synths are laid down, and the percussion changes subtly... it's highly repetitive, but is never boring, it's just so gorgeous!!!
In A Beautiful Place Out In The Country: This one is gorgeous as well... this song is characterized by the use of a vocoder on a sample which says something like "blah blah blah In a beautiful place out in the country", but it also has lots of sounds of children laughing, and all that... it starts off with an errie little synth atop these children samples, and it creates an errie kind of mood... then in comes the percussion... the vocoder comes in later, and atop of all this more synth lines play... again it's just gorgeous and amazing!!!
Zoetrope: Last, but not least, is Zoetrope... I've read a lot of reviews where people call this a bad song, but it's most definately not...

Those who were entranced by 1998's "Music Has The Right To Children" might be floored by the quality of this remarkably good EP. Were "IABPOITC" expanded to a full-length disc with similar artistic acumen, it would almost certainly be their best recording to date. "Zoetrope" is interesting in its Steve Reich/Phillip Glass-like tones and structures, but loses out to the deeply blissful feel of the three previous tracks. The title piece and "Amo Bishop Roden" are minature masterpieces comparable to the best slow-paced IDM out there. BOC's genius resides in their ability to conjure up a tender yearnfulness without sounding cloyingly sentimental, a trap that many electronic artists fall into, especially within the New Age music scene. And to reiterate many previous claims, it does sound a lot like the electronic music that was written for children's progams on PBS during the '70s, which has a special significance for those GenXer's who grew up watching those shows, like yours truly. Or if you're Canadian, you'll think of the wonderfully arty animation brought to you by the National Film Board of Canada (I for one am angry at the Cartoon Network for cancelling "O Canada", the only show I know of that broadcasted those classic cartoons up until several months ago).
Either way, "IABPOITC" ranks as a landmark among IDM EP's--highly recommended.
