About this item

THE PICCADILLY RECORDS ALBUM OF THE YEAR 1998

Outstanding debut album for Warp from Scotland's Boards Of Canada. Taking influences from Aphex Twin, 'Artificial Intelligence' era Warp releases and laid back hip hop rhythms, then twisting those ideas through a sun-refracted kaleidoscope of lush ambient sounds, Scottish brothers Mike Sandison and Marcus Eoin came up with a much copied sound all of their own. This was Piccadilly Records album of the year in 1998 and is an unsurpassed collection of melodic electronica tracks. You need this!

STAFF COMMENTS

Martin says: A thing of eerie and absolute beauty, which manages the rarely accomplished and apparently mutually exclusive task of creating deep emotional connection through electronic music. Haunting intervals punctuate primitive, meditative reflection throughout; summoning wistful echoes of an ominous, half recalled childhood summer.

Darryl says: From 1998:
