Like Aphex Twin, unsettling and even scary at times. They are truly the equivalent of rhe punk movement in electronic music (musically, not culturally).

I've recently become a huge IDM fan, in the past year or so I took it on myself to consume every LP by IDM legends aphex twin, autechre & boards of canada, unearthing so many great records from these sonic geniuses, and I have to say this is the finest record out of them all. This is because BoC use dreamy, sometimes trippy, textures to create a sense of otherworldliness **and yet** "Music has the Right to Children" is very much rooted in the real world. With short snatches of child-like wonder and laughter seamlessly blending in with the excellent production, one feels an overwhelming sense of nostalgia. Boards of Canada have captured not our childhood, but the scattershot memories of our childhood, all the bits and pieces we can remember stitched together in a glorious fashion. A wondrous, evocative piece of art.

It's a shame "Happy Cycling" isn't actually part of the original album; it would have worked best if placed before "One Very Important Thought". It is one of the best Boards of Canada songs, so don't miss out on it if you have a version of "Music Has the Right to Children" that doesn't include it. Look it up and listen!

The moment when Sixtyten's main synth comes in is one of the most chilling but exciting moments in music in my opinion. The more i listen to this album, the more i fall in love. It has this really odd way of combining a creepy coldness with a really blissful warmness.

I can understand why this LP might be described as boring, but it's the minimalism and textured landscapes that change so little that has me loving this album so much. One of my favorite instrumentals, no doubt.
