I'll admit that I found nothing fascinating about Boards of Canada (hereto referred to as BOC), or their IDM style of music. In fact, I would look over their CD countless times to buy something else that I would grow tired of in a nano second. Feeling a little adventurous, I picked up BOC's "Music Has the Right to Children" and am I glad I did. Ranging from feelings of doom and gloom to everything's gonna be okay, BOC has a remarkable style of their own sure to impress any pedestrian listener! Stand out tracks on MHTRTC are "Roykbiv", "Rue the Whirl", "Aquarius", "Pete Standing Alone" and "Happy Cycling". I expected a bunch of ambient, beatless grooves, but this set turned out to be quite danceable, and therapeutic at the same time. BOC has taken a familair style, and transported it to the next level of dance/chillout music--guess that's why they are labled in the sub-genre of Intelligent Dance Music (IDM). And even though this disc was released in 1998, in 2003 I still find the beats contemporary!
