There aren't many "concept" records which have quite as dark roots as this. Essentially this is a collection of music inspired by the Branch Davidian cult whose base was near Waco. The cult are best known for a siege which took place in 1993 when a botched attempt by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms to execute a search warrant resulting in the death of four ATF officers, and six cult members. 16 AFT officers were injured.

This incident resulted in a 51 day siege which made headlines around the world. On April 19th 1993, the FBI made attempts to end the standoff which resulted in a fire which killed 76 of the remaining 85 cult members inside the compound.

In A Beautiful Place Out In The Country is a line taken from a Davidian promotional video advertising their community. Whilst Amo Bishop Roden was the name of the wife of the group's second in command.

I've always thought the knowledge of this gives the eerie music a deeper, more sinister context.

Boards of Canada strike gold again! The title track is so beautiful, and the droll "Kid for Today" sets up dark tones and lush tripped-up beats that make me feel good. Awesome!
Excellent music for activities such as studying, doing homework, or anything else, really. 9.5/10

This is a fantastic release. Most of all what I really like about its sound is that it has this airiness that you often do not get on modern vinyl. and that I usually only know from AAA records. I have not heard the CD but I am sure that this vinyl release puts it to shame. The tracks themselves are simple but captivating and one of Board of Canada's best. I love this release and never get tired of listening to it. [ Playing this using an Ortofon 2M Black cartridge ]

Yeah, gotta second a few people here on some comments about sealed copies being scratched, off center and super amazing at 33 rpm. Personal favorite at 33 is the title track, sucks I had to return them though. Maybe I'll just look for an OG sky blue one...

Just opened a sealed copy, and it’s scratched. So much for quality control.

Enchanting set of songs to really set a gloomy yet nostalgic mood, with beautiful photographs on the sleeve to boot. Best played on rainy days or whenever its cloudy outside.

My copy of the repress has the hole slightly off centre.
