The album received widespread acclaim upon release.

Notes

“Smokes Quantity” first appeared on Twoism in 1995, and many other tracks appear on Boc Maxima, albeit in different forms.

The short songs appended to the end of “Triangles and Rhombuses” and “Sixtyten” predate the album and were later featured on the unofficial compilation Old Tunes, Vol. 1, where they are separate tracks.

“Sixtyten” is how one would say “70” in the French language. 70 is the smallest weird number. A track found on their next album is called “The Smallest Weird Number” and is possibly a reference to the Boards of Canada’s own music label, Music70.

“Pete Standing Alone” is the name of a Blood Indian who is the subject of a documentary produced by the National Film Board of Canada.

“Roygbiv” is a mnemonic for colours of the visible spectrum.

The track “Rue the Whirl” appears in the “Mettle” episode of Spaced.

The track “Kaini Industries” was covered by Bibio for the Warp Records compilation Warp20 (Recreated) in 2009.

The track “Aquarius” uses a sample from Carl Sagan’s Cosmos: A Personal Voyage series, Episode 3: “The Harmony of the Worlds”.
