As you know, In a Beautiful Place Out in the Country first materialised ‘twixt Boards of Canada’s two bumper-length Warp classics Music Has the Right to Children and Geogaddi, and is, rightly, just as acclaimed. For my money, ol’ IaBPOitC is better produced than either album, the first three of its four tracks an impeccable trio of gentle haunters. BoC really nailed their shtick with this one.

9/10 Jack Customer review, 20th April 2015
It is sad to think that scores of people will never experience the airy warmth of a song like Kid for Today simply because it doesn't sound like what is popular at the moment. I wish more artists took the time to make use of subtlety and high-quality production so effectively. In my opinion, Amo Bishop Roden is one of the best songs ever made. There is a combination of atmospheric ambience and perfectly restrained beats that is undeniable. The title track conjures up a community living in pastoral bliss, but is also a little unsettling.
