Warp Records lives up to its name, as my record came just that - warped. Fortunately it does not effect the playback, just looks weird on the turntable.
  • Malak
I can only agree with the other comments below. This records sounds great - it's very dynamic, warm and detailed, with lots of punch, very analogue sounding - is there a chance this is AAA? As mtngchi stated, I am sure the 2018 release will be identical too, will probably pick up another copy on release.
  • Aiata
Bleep page states it was "remastered from original digital audio tapes", which in my opinion, despite being digital doesn't diminish the sound quality for this release.
  • Kulabandis
Vinyl repress up for pre-order on Bleep (they say "2018 edition", but I guess it'll be identical) https://bleep.com/release/5213-boards-of-canada-hi-scores?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=tweet&utm_campaign=Hi%20Scores

Such a great pressing all around. Turquoise Hexagon Sun and Seeya Later actually sounds better here than on the vinyl reissues of MHTRTC and Twoism respectively in my opinion.PS: Huh, it's sold out on Skam bleepstore, and vinyl gone from Bleep. Prices drove a bit up, I hope it gets a repress soon, cuz it's that good.PS2: Listening back between them now, I think the Twoism mix of Seeya Later is also good in a different way, mid-range-rich and "warmer", while the Hi Scores mix is detailed and crisp.
  • Brariel
I second this comment, I wish the LP represses were as good as this one.
  • Phain
This remaster is fantastic. It's one of my better sounding records I own actually and i'm not exactly sure why.
  • Hunaya
I know what you mean! I really appreciate the quality control on this one
  • Bremar
Excellent reissue. Cool to see the artwork in color and the braille sticker is always a nice touch. Poster is nice too. The record itself is the heaviest I have seen... You could knock someone out with this thing. Sounds great too. My favorite tracks are A1, A2, and B3.
  • Xirmiu
nice reissue
  • Silver Globol
Excellent (re)release! Wish they would do this with Boc Maxima!
  • Malhala
Amazing copy with the channels properly sided. Apparently mixed by the band members themselves from the original DATs. Been waiting for this for quite some time and could be arguably the ultimate version that BoC originally intended to release. Highly recommended and a steal if you love BoC.
  • Black_Hawk_Down.
excellent quality.
  • Gavigamand
So nice to finally have this back in my collection. other than those early releases i've never seen or heard i now own all BoC realeases. Would be nice if Warp would put out a compilation of BoC remixes as some of those are rather nice.
  • Quttaro
Great record, really good sounding release.
  • Auau
did anyone else receive an empty skam records sleeve that was hand stamped? weird!
  • Iell
is there any misspressings or scratchings on this one like the previous BoC rereleases?
  • Querlaca
No pops or groove noise, great sound. Very nice pressing indeed,
  • Zuser
Just finished listening to mine, and it sounded awesome.
  • Tinavio
just copped mine and no flaws
  • Bukus
Just noticed the Braille sticker (on mine anyway) doesn't say Boards of Canada on it, rather boäds of canada.
  • Wenyost
my copy is correct, says 'Boards of Canada' in contracted braille.
  • Stylish Monkey
My copy came today. The picture of the two girls on the cover is in colour! I wish I could do a good quality scan, it looks fantastic. Great record.
