    What is everybody talking about? this album is somehow a movie made with music, how the f****? really amazing. They have a very deep connection with nature and life which of course makes them sound so beautifully different.

    An absolutely stunning masterpiece, The Campfire Headphase proves that Boards of Canada are deserving of their position at the pinnacle of the ambient genre. The woozy and calming vibes emanated throughout are nothing short of unparallelled.

  1. The Campfire Headphase lacks the transcendent grace that made Music Has the Right to Children and even Geogaddi classics in their field.
  2. This is music you listen to when drugs don't work anymore.
  3. It is a testament to Mike Sandison and Marcus Eoin's production acumen that the songs here sound so organic despite their computerized origin. [22 Oct 2005]
