CD Reviews

3 stars for quality, not quantity
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The tracks on this cd are very good, but I can't justify the price for the very short playing time. As another reviewer has noted, the album is better value. Also check out 'Hi-Scores', a superior 6-track ep."
Worth more then you might think

"I have everything B of C have done and this is one of the best. They are at their most happy-sounding, almost giddy, with the first two tracks and then a meloncholy, gorgeous third track. The tracks flow together perfectly and it's impossible to listen to this and not feel slightly happier and in a better mood. It's minimal - short and sweet, if they put any more on it would ruin the effect. You may not think it's worth it, but this is a really special record.
ok, this is a single with 3 tracks:
-Aquarius - a different and MUCH better version then on 'Music has the Right...'-Happy Cycling - already on the american release of 'Music has the Right...'-Olsen - see Aquarius. Almost a completely different track. Extremely beautiful."
Short and sweet, but lacking credible effort
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Boards of Canada's full-length album was one I enjoyed immensely. This Peel Session is more an extension of that than anything. I liked the minor additions to Aquarius, and the Olson revamp is quite soothing, yet short. Happy Cycling is a track I had already on the album, but a great addition, no less. Perhaps the excellence of this release could have been helped by the addition of "XYZ", which was also recorded for that session. If you are looking to be blown away, look elsewhere; if you are looking for a couple new (yet familiar) tracks, this is the one for you. A definite "A+" for content, but a "C" for effort."
