      Reach For The Dead is an absolute favorite of mine, probably one of the best BoC composition to this date. Also quite ahead of its time.

        Not as good as the classic first two LPs, but significantly better than Campfire Headphase. I never actually gave this one much of a chance back in the day after how disappointing Campfire Headphase was and how dull this one's visual presentation is. Seemed sad but pretty clear that they were cooked and past it. However, instead of just a straight decline, there is a surprising uptick here and a minor return to form. They clearly hit the wall rhythmically, though, and most of the percussion sequencing is about as inspired and exciting as that album cover typeface, but its obvious they rested and recouped a good chunk of passion for one last major work.

        Standouts for me: 'Jacquard Causeway' and 'Nothing is Real'

          I have two copies of the second disc (sides 3 and 4). Would happily trade one for a copy of disc 1.

            Interesting to see that several reviewers recently said they enjoy it better now.

            I appreciated this release since day 1, but have to say that listening to it a few days ago made it, indeed, even better, as it suits the global context even more.

            I discovered BoC as a teenager somewhere between 2010 and 2012 and instantly felt in love. This profound melancholy, and the fact that it evoked feelings that matched my longing for a more beautiful, peaceful, natural world.

            I was very happy when this came out, as it felt like a refresh of their previous discography, and something I could identify with even more, fitting the zeitgeist of the early 2010s

            10 years later... and this album feels even better. When it came out, it felt prophetic. Today, it's a sign of the times.

            Easily becoming my favorite BoC release.

            Thank you BoC for giving us music to live to, through these troubled times.

              Some serious end-times music. Perfect in context. As a huge fan of BOC I wasn't hyped on this album when it was released but like many of the current listeners I am coming back to this album realizing I was just bit behind the times. What else could they have released, really?

                    It would be a major understatement to claim that Tomorrow’s Harvest was a highly anticipated release. It seems that ever since the group’s last record in 2005, The Campfire Headphase, the internet would light up with annual gossip of their return, the frenzy spreading fast and wide only to dead-end in another discredited rumor. So it’s no wonder that this time around, when Warp used the incredibly clever marketing campaign of embedding cryptic codes via six distinct entities (like BBC Radio 1, NPR and Adult Swim), I took some time in confirming the announcement’s authenticity. So what’s the big deal about Boards of Canada, and at what point did the Scottish electronic music duo reach this near cultish following? And why did I, along with so many, listened to the premiere of the album via YouTube and then immediately preordered both, the CD and vinyl?

                    The word is that the two brothers, Mike Sandison and Marcus Eouin, began slowly working on their fourth studio album following the release of The Campfire Headphase. And if it took them almost eight years to produce the follow-up, then it was the eight years worth waiting for. There are many things I can say about the album, but it all boils down to this: Tomorrow’s Harvest is a classic Boards Of Canada album that only Boards Of Canada could make. Recorded at BoC’s own studio, called Hexagon Sun (located in south-west of Edinburgh, Scotland), the duo seemed interested in escaping the urban environment, preferring to work in isolation away from evolving genres and latest growing fads. This is perhaps why the sound of Tomorrow’s Harvest is so timeless, yet imprinted with that one specific point in time when Towism, Hi Scores and Boc Maxima used to dominate my playlists.

                    “The challenge with this record was crafting the tunes into a specific style and time period we want to reference. [...] In this case there’s a deliberate VHS video-nasty element throughout the record and to get there it wasn’t just a case of processing sounds through old media, which is a given with us anyway, but we even went to the extent of timing changes in the music and the composition of the pieces, in really specific ways to give an impression of something familiar from soundtrack work that was around 30 years ago.” – Mike Sandison [1]

                    The sound is full of lush, rich and deep ambient textures, stretching and warping through downtempo rhythms, like an old cassette tape left in a hot car over a weekend. There are plenty of vintage analog synth sounds and lo-fi treatments with even more subliminal messages and hypnotic layered patterns which immediately bring back the nostalgia of that dear ‘ol Boards of Canada. The title of the album, by the way, is inspired by Deadly Harvest, a 1977 film on widespread crop failures in North America, but that’s as close as the music comes to being post-apocalyptic. What’s even more explicit is the newly confirmed fact that those who’ve tried to replicate the BoC sound have definitely failed, as this imaginary soundtrack to the dusty documentary on ghostly cities is still the strength within their work. And that’s what the brothers have been working on all these years.

                    There is a lot more that I could say about this record. But as with many critically acclaimed albums I often wonder if I should even bother. It’s not like I feel a responsibility of proclaiming my new discovery to the world and letting you know that this is an album you must own – I’m sure that you already do. It’s not like I must produce a counted amount of words to keep my day job as a critic – I’m sure I’d never write a word. I guess for me, this coverage is more like a statement of an acknowledgment, that yes, I’ve had incredibly high hopes for Boards of Canada, and yes, it certainly delivered! And after more than a dozen plays, here’s to many more rotations to come!

                      i was reading through some of these reviews and i noticed that many people said that they went back and listened to the album again after many years and liked it a lot better than they did at the time of release. i did the same, and i also liked it a whole lot more too. it sounds like BOC, but it is different than their 'classic' albums. it's darker, but i really enjoyed it a lot. if you still have your copy laying around somewhere, check it out again!

                        The vinyl pressing seems louder than digital - but it is just as dynamic. A richer low / midrange, for sure - but not muddy, like some vinyl can be. This is definitely an example of a pressing that sounds better on vinyl than digital. Great album, too.
