It is a varied album, but there is still a limited vocabulary available to describe it. This one has a thudding beat. It's quite cosmic, actually – cosmic techno." <ref>http://thequietus.com/articles/12364-boards-of-canada-tomorrows-harvest-review</ref>

Comments[edit]

  • In an interview with The Guardian, Sandison said that Come to Dust "is a musical reprise of Reach for the Dead." [1]

Samples / Lyrics[edit]

Trivia[edit]

Fear no more the heat o' the sun,
Nor the furious winter's rages;
Thou thy worldly task hast done,
Home art gone, and ta'en thy wages:
Golden lads and girls all must,
As chimney-sweepers, come to dust.

Fear no more the frown o’ the great,
Thou art past the tyrant’s stroke;
Care no more to clothe and eat;
To thee the reed is as the oak:
The sceptre, learning, physic, must
All follow this, and come to dust.

Fear no more the lightning-flash,
Nor the all-dreaded thunder-stone;
Fear not slander, censure rash;
Thou hast finish’d joy and moan:
All lovers young, all lovers must
Consign to thee, and come to dust. [2]
