Album Review

Like Autechre and Bochum Welt, Boards of Canada draw heavily from both new wave and electro in appreciable measures that, when recombined in the context of the group's tugging beats and simple-but-effective songwriting, end up sounding like way more than either. Hi Scores is a near-perfect six-tracker of gorgeous, building ambient electro and loping downtempo electronic breakbeat tracks that are as pleasing to the ears as they are head-bucking funky.

Customer Reviews

THANK YOU!!!!

I am SO happy Hi Scores is FINALLY on iTunes! It's an incredibly hard album to find, but now, here it is! It's virtually MIA at any and all record stores, online shops, and auction sites like eBay. But now we've got it conveniently located on iTunes for our listening enjoyment! Now, if only they'd release Play By Numbers, Acid Memories, and Hooper Bay...then I would be over the moon. My personal favorites on this record (although the entire thing is fantastic) are "Hi Scores" and "Everything You Do Is a Balloon." Oh yeah, and for some reason "Seeya Later" seems like a very rough/early demo edit of "Happy Cycling" from Music Has the Right to Children. Does anyone else hear the resemblance?

I can't believe it!

I always thought that because it wasn't in stores or something, Hi Scores would never be added on to iTunes. I wait a little into 2009, and there it is! Great release, people. You should buy it!

Great album. Track six is one of my favorite BoC tracks ever. It's nice to have a copy of it around without the soundscapes if you just want the beat part - I like to keep both of them around for different mixes. If you like BoC, check out Tycho and Sonmi451.

Boards of Canada are the duo of Michael Sandison (born June 1, 1970) and Marcus Eoin (born July 21, 1971). Based on the northern coast of Scotland, the group got its start on acclaimed experimental electronica label Skam in 1996 after recording an obscene number of tracks and pressing the best of them up as a miniscule-run 12", Twoism, an eight-track promo EP the group sent to labels in lieu of a demonstration tape. The pair's first official release appeared on Skam toward the middle of 1996, and...
