Product Description


Like dust motes dancing in hazy afternoon sunlight, the compositions of Scottish duo Boards of Canada seduce listeners by illuminating almost imperceptible elements flitting through the cluttered cosmos. Though their saturated hip-hop beats and deployment of timbres as tactile textures recalls Autechre, Boards of Canada are distinguished by sweet melodies and a fondness for using vaguely familiar sounds outside of Western harmonic tradition--snippets of party conversations, bouncing Ping-Pong balls--to function as emotional triggers. Despite its sonic watercolor washes and childlike exclamations of "I love you" ("The Color of the Fire"), Music Has the Right to Children is not some yellowing document scribbled by glassy-eyed, loved-up rave casualties. This exemplary, evocative recording almost hovers above any fixed point on the time line of pop-music history. --Kurt B. Reighley

5.0 out of 5 stars most gorgeous music I have ever heard Jan. 5 2004
By cheeky
Format:Audio CD
This entire CD, through and through, is absolutley gorgeous. It is the most beautiful and moving thing I have ever heard. It's nostalgic and futuristic, mechanical and organic, all at once. When I listen to it I'm transported back to my childhood, back to watching TVO (Canada's PBS); yet there's an almost sinister quality to it that keeps you in reality. I've listened to it over and over again since I received it in the mail. I almost cry at the end of the album, Happy Cycling, when the synths come in near the end. It reminds you of childhood lost. This album will take you through all the range of emotions. It's just perfect. I'm a huge fan of BoC now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fan From USA April 5 2007
Format:Audio CD
This Album is Art. Music is Art. Art is an expression/ interpretation. The listener can take their own ideals from the music. Those who view this music as satanic, I must ask first what is it that you find satanic? Is it anything not religious? Also if you do find this satanic perhaps you ought to make sure you listen to the Eagles more closely, Hotel California in particular. I am a religious person however i do have my own mind. Certain music may not be suitable for those with fragile minds, just as a history book may not be much more than a way of control.

5.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 Stars? Noooo!!!!! Jan. 20 2007
By Billbob
Format:Audio CD
This is the best album I have ever heard, hands down. I like it so much because I grew up as one of the youngest in my family and extended family, so I saw a lot of family photos and stories taking place in the 1970s and 1980s, which is the era that this music recollects. I also grew up watching old film board movies from a different time on old projectors and watching Sesame Street. I remember the film board movies and their grainy, simple music, and the weathered visuals, but I don't remember the films themselves, and this music perfectly captures that feeling of incomplete memory. I have heard this album many, many times and each time I am able to get something new from it. I would definatley reccomend this album to anyone, regardless of their taste in music. My personal favorites from this album are An Eagle in your Mind, Roygbiv, Pete Standing Alone, and Happy Cycling.

In regards to the reviewer who said that their music is littered with references to the occult, etc. BOC themselves have said that they are not members/supporters of said cults. I feel that some of these samples create a sinister layer, but knowing their intentions aren't bad shows how they may have a sense of humour being aware that some might take the samples too seriously. You may enjoy their newest release though, "campfire headphase" as it pretty much is free of the subliminal content running through "Geogaddi".

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunningly Beautiful Music Feb. 17 2005
Format:Audio CD
Boards of Canada is the Pink Floyd of the new millenium, and Music Has the Right to Children is its Dark Side of the Moon (which would make Geogaddi its Wish You Were Here, I suppose). Tragically, no one has heard of BoC save for a devoted core of fans. If you're reading this, you are already a fan, or you soon will be. Spread the word.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inspired Analog Soundings July 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
BOC use analog or analog mimicry to make interesting music that at times sound like old 70's/80's soundtrack's to corporate video promotional videos or old Moog type music for b-movie sci-fi and it works very well. The themes seem to center around the dreamlike wonderland state of children as their voices are featured in some samples. Interesting chill out trip hop that I found myself listening to again and again. I must investigate them further.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alien magnificence June 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
Contrary to people claiming "you've never heard this before", you have come across elements of this music in other's works: Aphex Twin, Auterche, Neu!, Eno...what Boards of Canada have done is take all these elements and fine-tune them into their own distinctive sound that is simply a trip in outer space. I could compare this album to my favorite of this type of genre: Air's "Moon Safari" but it would be an injustice. This album is a much more ambivalent sound, more concerned with creating the ultimate soundscapes than mixing the Beatles and John Barry into a spy soundtrack.
Boards of Canada play with the EQ and reverb on the sounds to create a warm journey through the joy of sound. Obviously talking about this album is akin to discussing the thrills of skydiving: you can't express it, you must experience it. That being said, this album is a slow-burner that will take some time to grow on you, but when it does, you'll be completely immersed. It isn't the most original ambient album, but damned if it isn't the most enjoyable and worth your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! June 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
This group, is just....wow. Their music will leave you in a different world of emotions. With music that brings you back to being a kid and day dreaming. This cd is very good, great beats and samples! The song the color of the fire, is an old 1980's Sesame Street clip of a little girl spelling I....Love.....You!!! With a very pretty organ/synth playing in the backround. This cd how ever has more beats than Geogodie. I love Geogodie, their latest cd. But this one is a must have for Ambient lovers.
