Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

I love this album. I've heard a lot of people say the repress does the original justice, and while I've never heard an OG pressing of this, I believe it. The sound quality of this double LP is fantastic - wide range, good separation, and hits hard.

The packaging is superb. Heavy wax, comes in a beautiful heavy gatefold sleeve, lined inner-sleeves for the LPs, and includes a cool BoC sticker with download card.

My only complaint is that it came with a corner of the cover pretty badly damaged, (must have been pre-shipment, since the box was fine) but I was given a partial refund as compensation.

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.

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.

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".

Softer, subtler and more organic-sounding than Autechre and Squarepusher, this production by Boards of Canada provides the perfect blend for some nice background music to chill out to. Staying away from anything remotely similar to an ambient sound, the Scottish duo elaborates around some minimal loops without ever becoming too noisy or industrial, ocasionally adding some voice loops on top, to craft a piece of music that is fairly unique in nature. With longer songs (in the 5-to-6-minute bracket) intertwined around short ones (no more than 2 minutes at a time), the album gradually melts in your mouth, while you enjoy some good company and let the lights of your day be slowly dimmed.

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.

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!
