anyone ever heard about a limited digipak for this album? a canadian music store (archambault) have that in their inventory, anyone know what's different about it?

This is Boards of Canada's second major release, following Music Has The Right to Children, which in it of itself was an amazing release. It is not common you will see a certain artist praised over a release, only to surpass that release in almost every aspect a few years later. Geogaddi is something I highly recommend listening to all the way through before anything else. This album is a perfect example of how order in music can make or break an album. Many of the songs here will transition into one another making for a fantastic experience where the album feels more like an hour long mix, rather than individual tracks where songs stop and begin. This is something MHTRTC did but Geogaddi is where they mastered it. This album has many underlying themes and some were seen as very controversial. As user genocyber said "not sure why this album gets such a bad rep...maybe its because of the satanism references?". There are several of these satanic references in the album but most will go ignored unless you dig deep into every track. Michael and Marcus have stated before that their music isn't necessarily intended to be listened to on drugs and that they believe that music is the drug. I think Geogaddi represents this the best. If you haven't listened to this album in its entirety yet (or even at all!) I highly recommend it.

Abysmal quality plunge after MHTRTC. Had not been for that first record, nobody would have noticed this release, not to mention taken it seriously.

People usually refer to this album as MHTRTC's darker twin. Right off the bat, the track "Ready Lets go" sets the tone for the album, with it's extremely dark, wavering ambient tone broken up by undefinable climbing synth sounds and a broken-sounding synth/piano that comes in every once in a while. This track transitions right into "Music is Math", one of my favorites. This track containes a beautiful analog tone that becomes accompanied by a squashed drum machine beat and vocoder samples. The track ends with a haunting vaguely-human-sounding wail. Now, I could write an entire paper on this album(and I might some day), but I'll sum up the rest of it. The drumming drives almost every track, and appears to be even more complex than MHTRTC. Case in point, "Gyroscope", with it's psychedelic driving IDM drum pattern. The vocal samples sound extremely sinister in this album, such as in "The Devil is in the Details", which features a vocal sample, possibly from a hypnosis video, that has been so distortec and changed that it sounds like the voice is underwater. There also seems to be even more sound exploration on this album, as many of the sounds are not identifiable as being synthesizers, like with most of MHTRTC. For example, "Julie and Candy" puts flutes and recorders to use to create an extremely overwhelming, psychedelic sound. There are more vignettes on this album to break up the tracks. Many of these smaller tracks consist of a vocal sample paired with nostalgic melodies or a mindfuck of undefinable sound. Whereas MHTRTC made me think of wilderness, this album makes me think of radio towers and industrial buildings: the beauty of nature peaking though something destructive and man-made.

Quite a departure from Music Has The Right To Children, Geogaddi is one of those albums that you either love or hate. For me, it took me a while to appreciate it. Its much darker and more experimental than their predecessor, but, it grows on you and I rate it pretty highly: 8/10

Headphones clamped on,memories and imagination amplified. That stolen kiss,loves lost dream. The 1970's sun on my back, and a sky scratched with vapour trails from aircraft long since departed. Elusive contours,fragmented landscapes and forgotten truths. A dazzle on a grey day,I feel so close now.Yet a million miles away...This album takes me there, but part of me never returns...

This is a fine melancholic Album, listening to "Geogaddi" is like getting inside old houses and have visions of scenes from the past, seeing who were the people that once used to live there, like seeing a Man in the backyard playing ball with his two sons, or a woman feeding her bedridden Mother...among those visions you get to see events that were kept secret...and eventually you´ll come across with some ghosts trying to scare you "the devil is in the details".
This Album is also a restrospective of your most memorable moments in life.
A touching album that is well worth listening.
