Only took off one star for the Odd Nosdam remix. Dynamics are nice, but not when you have to constantly adjust your volume for 10 minutes. At least on farewell fire is quiet for the rest of the song haha

Edit: yeah seriously the only way I can bring myself to listen to the Odd Nosdam remix is if I slam it with a 24dB limiter at 3 sec release

Nice pressing, a far cry from the abhorrent repress of Campfire Headphase but not as good as the repress of A Beautiful Place In The Country.

Skyliner is one of my all-time favorite BOC tracks. Uplifting, dreamy and strangely, a great track to drive to... Epitomises all things Boards.

I have a repress of this, but the matrix #s are "98203 1A WAP 200" and "98203 1B WAP 200". I'm new to discogs, not sure what to do with this information. The vinyl seems to be free of defects.

Happy with this pressing, generally. Few clicks here and there, but not distracting, rather adds to the analogue ambiance of BoC music. BoC was made for vinyl.

Left Side Drive, much like Oirectine from Twoism, is what really typifies BOC for me.

So cold you feel paralyzed. So warm you feel unborn.

It's a strange blanket, familiar and unfamiliar at the same time.

You cannot help but fall in love.

Boards of Canada and "electric guitar" aren't words you normally put together, but on their TRANS CANADA HIGHWAY, that's exactly what you get from the get-go. "Dayvan Cowboy" is like a soundtrack to a futuristic Wim Wenders film; the country-western vibe might put some people off, but for me, it's an added bit of charm. "Left Side Drive" is more familiar territory for the Boards, a dreamy and drifting track. "Skyliner" continues in that vein, with its long sci-fi synths and scattered rhythms. Odd Nosdam takes a slow, droning approach to his remix of "Dayvan Cowboy," such that want originally sounds like a road trip turns into a head trip.
