    Classic Album Reissued

    Classic 3xlp from Boards of Canada reissued in 2013. Third LP is one sided and contains an etching on the reverse. Greeted with an initial lack of enthusiasm among some listeners who found the record to be 'more of the same,' critically and among the fanbase the album was warmly recieved. Pared down from an extraordinary 90+ tracks to a total of 23 (one of which is silence), Geogaddi has been described by Boards of Canada as: "a record for some sort of trial-by-fire, a claustrophobic, twisting journey that takes you into some pretty dark experiences before you reach the open air again. It has a kind of narrative." Described in early interviews by Michael Sandison as "[reflecting] a chaotic period in [their] personal lives" (OOR, 2002), the brothers have subsequently admitted that the turmoil of the 9/11 terrorist attacks significantly influenced the tone and direction of Geogaddi. Said Michael Sandison: "Geogaddi was kind of exorcising demons, and even after we'd set out to do a record like that, smack in the middle of working on it, 9/11 happened. I remember there were a few of us in the studio that day, and we just ended up glued to the TV for the whole day. I think the months after that pushed us into making a darker record, as I'm sure it did with a lot of bands." (Play Louder, 2005) The controversial nature of Geogaddi, however, has more to do with the 'lyrical' content of the album than with its style or context. The hidden elements (back masked vocals, voices embedded deeply into the mix, etc.), while often present in their previous output, abound in unprecedented numbers on Geogaddi. The subjects addressed in these vocal samples range anywhere from the occult to the mathematical to the possibly satanic.

    Amazing Boards of Canada album, sometimes hailed as their best. It's a very dark and moody album. The vinyl pressing is excellent, and side b of the final disc has a beautiful etching of a family on it. A must for Boards of Canada fans.

    Early 2000s gem re-released so you don't have to pay $200 elsewhere.
