Pitchfork
Boards of Canada’s 1998 album is a beat-music touchstone, a record that took the previous decade of home-listening electronic music and essentially perfected it.

AllMusic

Although Boards of Canada's blueprint for electronic listening music -- aching electro-synth with mid-tempo hip-hop beats and occasional light scratching -- isn't quite a revolution in and of itself, Music Has the Right to Children is an amazing LP.

Spin

On Music Has the Right to Children, the Scottish duo Boards offer minimal techno that's fully funky.

Slant Magazine

Nestled somewhere in between the warm hues of 1970s flocked wallpaper and the sleek electronic sheen of the future lies Boards of Canada’s Music Has the Right to Children.

At last, the avant cavalry has arrived, and despite confusion over where they're from, this duo have plotted an alluring route forward.

Ran across this album at random. I didn’t even know who these guys were. Funny to see how everyone enjoys it as much as I do.
