Wonderful pressing, both discs are flat and silent, poly lined inners are a plus. Identifiable by having no hype sticker.

This is an excellent album from the late '90s. Boards of Canada doesn't remind me of another group from the '90s. It seems they knew how to have their own sound through this album. Even after 20+ years since it was released, "Music Has The Right To Children" is pretty cool. A+

Landmark Electronica Album!
So pleased to add this to my collection, but a question. Does anyone else know why the final track from the CD release, "Happy Cycling" wasn't included on any of the vinyl pressings? Is it a limitation of the vinyl setup or what?
[ANSWER] Happy Cycling appeared on vinyl in the 1998 "Peel Session" 12" "single" along with alternate versions of Aquarius and Olsen.

All of the THREE (!) copies of this vinyl edition I bought and returned in 2020 were very noisy in the quieter parts, but side B of the second record particularly so. A "gust-of-snow-like" surface noise (sssSSSht.....sssSSSht.....sssSSSht...) can be heard on all the quieter tracks, which is really irritating. The problem must have occured in the process of pressing the record, otherwise it wouldn't be audible on every copy of side B. I'm happy for the people whose copies were "excellent pressings". With three tries, I can't consider myself so lucky. I'll stick to my CD with this one.

My copy matches this one, but has a download code. Some do, some don't, I guess.

IMO, the best damn album that BoC has ever done.

The tracks on this LP have texture, if you listen on headphones you feel you can touch them.

Excellent pressing. No complaints from me whatsoever. Of course the music speaks for itself.

I have nothing to compare to (except loseless cds or vinyl rips), but the pressing sounded absolutely perfect.

Masterpiece. From the first day I heard this album at a record store back in the mid/late 90's I knew these guys were major contenders in the experimental electronica trip-hop realm (idm was a new term back then and only a few tracks sounded like idm). The store shop guy said to me after asking what the album was and if I could buy it he said, "Naw man, this is the only copy I got. It's called Boards of Canada. You're one of those Warp guys, aren't you?" I bought a Plaid Not for 3's cd (Didn't even know Plaid was Black Dog at the time) and went on my way. Now I'm an gracefully aging idm head and only buy vinyl (because it's just the right to do). I know these songs front to back but now I finally got the vinyl. This album is probably the most experimental of the BoC catalog and it stands way high in my classic idm favorites. This is the one that changed the sound for many genres until to this very day. Lots of people are still biting a little off of these guys. Pretty soon this sound will be no longer cutting edge, but at least you get to hear where it started. This was Skam records second contribution after Autechre into middle level underground infamy. It's a beautiful world down here in the underground. A constant flow of amazing artists that don't break into mainstream but stay at ground level and influence everybody else.
