''Amo Bishop Roden is a Branch Davidian member (remember the sect runby David Koresh from Camp David, Waco Texas?). She is the one saying "Come out to live in a religious community in a beautiful place in the country" on the track "In a beautiful place in the country". It's taken from an interview with her on David Koresh's ranch, and this is supposedly the beautiful place in the country.

Since I am not a Boards Of Canada conoisseur, let alone a long term follower of their opus, let me come out in the open and say it: Amo Bishop Roden is the track you have been looking for if dream like states of mind is the mood you prefer to be in. Sparse percussion, and an all encompassing, all inclusive melody and its sheer mesmerizing presence, chiefly restricted to recurring regularly and frequently in a prolonged and closely spaced out series of simple musical notes, which despite their compositional naivete, act like a sopofiric agent that induces sleep.

When I talk about dreamy, lackadaisical sounds which inspire me to just let go and get carried away, this is the track I have in mind. Pure and undiluted melody with no other purpose but blazing a forcible stream of gorgeous acoustic waves through your heart.

This is in my opinion one of the greatest EPs ever released. each song is incredible, I can't get enough of this release. Plus, each song on here is exclusive to the release, for the most part, unlike other BOC EPs where there are a lot of repeat tracks like Turquoise hexagon sun and smokes quantity. This EP is definitely worth your money, highly recommended.''
