Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
No one who has ever listened to Bardo Pond's seven previous full-length releases can argue that the Brothers Gibbons have always enjoyed dialing up the most heavily warped setting on their effects pedals; the result is that their guitar lines, aurally overpowering, have an almost visceral feel to them, and over time, have called up associative images in my mind as I cue up track after track from each release.

Selections 1-4 is a collection of material that for one reason or another never made it onto those proper releases. For the most part this collection is very strong; I suspect the reason that it wasn't released as a full-length is due to the average running time of each song, most of which take in excess of seven to nine minutes to unfold, with at least two cuts clocking in at about sixteen and nineteen minutes, respectively. I find that it's especially capable of calling up vivid mental images for me (and possibly for others who might be listening to it in a more opiated or hallucinogenic state of mind).

"Sit Sleep", the opening track, sounds as if rain is coming down in sheets through the booming of heavy thunderheads. "Cymbals", a heavy drone meshing guitar and keyboards, channels the background hum of the universe . "Before" is a centrifugal maelstrom of heavy distortion, putting me in mind of the drop-off from an event horizon into its black hole. "Precious Metal" flows like the distillation of one of those elements from a solid into liquid state. "Alien Heat" (along with "E-Dub" and "Take What You Need") seem to channel a subterranean discharge of electricity comprised of heavy amplitude and a sinuous, nearly infinite length, accompanied by a heavy burbling bassline.
