Finally reissued! Boards Of Canada's highly anticipated follow up to their Warp debut gets a long overdue repress. Geogaddi arrived four years after the success of Music Has The Right To Children and presented a slightly darker side of the duo. Although BOC did revisit the childlike atmosphere of their debut, something more sinister was afoot with this release. Some fans have even gone so far as to come up with outlandish interpretations of some of the album's song titles. While the fans may have been searching for meaning in the titles, BOC provided little info beyond the music. Nostalgic as the sound of their compositions was, their once innocent sounding warbling synths were now imbued with a mischievous spirit. Further more they filled in the silent spaces with more ominous drone. This all tended to create a slightly more malicious atmosphere. Overall Geogaddi was a satisfying release, especially for how hotly anticipated it was. Warp has done a great service to all those BOC fans that missed out on the vinyl when it initially came out in offering this reissue. They've faithful reproduced the release, from the triple gatefold cover, to the etching of the nuclear family on side F bka "Magic Window." Recommended.
