- "Smokes Quantity" first appeared on Twoism in 1995, and many other tracks appear on Boc Maxima, albeit in different forms.
- "The Color of the Fire" first appeared in a shorter form on A Few Old Tunes as "I Love U".
- 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. It is also featured in many episodes of the BBC's motoring show Top Gear.
- "Roygbiv" is a mnemonic for colours of the visible spectrum.
- The track "Rue the Whirl" appears in the "Mettle" episode of Spaced.
- The track "Rue the Whirl" appears in a 2007 Mercedes Benz advertisement
- The track "Kaini Industries" was covered by Bibio for the Warp Records compilation Warp20 (Recreated) in 2009.
- The track "Aquarius" uses a sample from Galt MacDermot's "Aquarius" from the soundtrack of the 1979 musical film Hair.
- The track "Happy Cycling" was mistakenly left off 500 copies of the initial North American release of the album despite the artwork indicating that the song was included.

It was ranked #91 in Mojo's 100 Modern Classics – "[T]hey took electronica into space. Cleverly referencing the esoteric side of '70s Test Card music in all its trippy glory."
Q Magazine called it "[A] thing of wonder....The aural equivalent of old Super 8 movies...".
